4944 Hood Drive, Woodland Hills, CA 91364
The Elliot Residence, 1961 :: In 1960, Allan & Elsie Elliot retained James M. Molony to construct their dream home. Being an engineer, Mr. Elliot set out to design and build a show-stopping Mid Century atop a secluded setting. 4944 Hood Drive is just that, and a harmonious marrying of classic materials and modern sustainability. The large open living, dining and kitchen spaces are tied together by a one-of-a-kind butterfly “gull wing” roof with an overhang that hugs the home, providing both shade and protection. On one side, a full-length exterior covered balcony and 2-story mitered window showcase the lush surroundings; and on the other, a wall of glass leads to the large pool and yard. As such, the home breathes, joining the interior and exterior as one. Down the ascending original stone staircase one finds an oversized primary suite and bathroom with steam shower and carefully placed windows, letting in natural light and allowing views of the 1/2 acre lot. The current owners have painstakingly upgraded the home, returning it to its original color and geared toward an intelligent sustainability. The expansive grounds have been thoughtfully designed using indigenous plants and low-water landscaping controlled by a 14-zone irrigation system. Several entertaining and relaxation spaces, tied together by steps and paths, were carefully carved out of the ascending hillside. An outdoor kitchen with built-in BBQ and multiple gathering spots provide an unrivaled entertaining experience. 39 paid-off solar panels ensure rock-bottom utility bills. The property also comes with a tankless water heater, 220V EV charger, 3-zone HVAC, variable low speed pool pump and more. Conveniently located within the Serrania Charter & Taft High school districts. A rare and classic mid century with a renewable approach in one of the most coveted pockets of Woodland Hills.
