This midcentury gem comes with a little piece of L.A. culinary history.

Located on an oversized 9,164-square-foot lot in Mount Washington, 371 Mavis Drive is a midcentury A-frame with much to offer—a soaring beamed ceiling,  an expansive triangular wall of glass framing spectacular downtown views, and two separate bonus structures on the property. Built in 1965, the home was recently renovated by one of its owners, Roberto Sheinberg, an architect and the design director of Lehrer Architects, who gutted the 1,605-feet residence and refreshed the living spaces of the main house. The renovation included inserting new flooring throughout and modernizing the kitchens and bathrooms—all while maintaining the integrity of the home’s original design.

The two additional structures at the back include one that is currently being used as a studio, office, and den. The other “would make a perfect recording studio or guest house,” according to the listing.

371 Mavis Drive also houses a little piece of L.A. history: According to the listing agent, Scott King of Deasy Penner Podley, the current owners purchased the home from two women who had owned the property since 1971 and ran a “fancy menu embossing business” out of the office-like second structure on the compound for over 30 years. “They supplied all the famous restaurants,” he shares. “In one of the two garages on the compound, there are over a hundred of their most iconic menus preserved on the wall as a memorial to their amazing contribution to the rise of Los Angeles as a culinary capital in the United States.”

When it comes to unconventional architecture, it’s hard to top Mount Washington, where you’ll find geodesic domes, homes made of corrugated metal or Arroyo stones, and a number of A-frames, including this peaked property at 371 Mavis Drive.

Built in 1965, the 1,605-feet residence has been recently overhauled by architect Roberto Sheinberg, design director of Lehrer Architects. It sports a modern kitchen, updated bathrooms (there are one and a half), and new plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems. Other features include hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, a gas fireplace, built-in shelving, and expansive walls of glass framing dramatic mountain and city views.

Along with the three-bedroom main house, the 9,164-square-foot lot holds two additional detached structures, one of which is used now as a studio, office, and den, while the other, per the listing, “would made a perfect recording studio or guest house.” There are also two garages.

Last sold in 2017 for $1.035 million, the compound property is now asking $1.375 million. Scott King of Deasy Penner Podley has the listing.

Actress Paula Malcomson has made quick work of selling her longtime home in the historic Mount Washington neighborhood of L.A. Listed for sale in February for $1.099 million, the updated Mid-Century residence sold in two weeks for $51,000 more than the asking price — $1.15 million.

Malcomson was a first-time homebuyer when she purchased the two-story in 2004 for $549,000. In recent years, the “Ray Donovan” and “Deadwood” actress had used the residence as an income property.

Built in 1958 and recently updated, the house features hardwood floors, picture windows and a detached studio/office in the backyard. The roughly 1,050-square-foot floor plan includes a living room, a dining area, two bedrooms and one-and-a-half bathrooms. The kitchen is equipped with new cabinetry and high-end appliances.

Outside, a stone path leads between the home and the detached studio. Lawn, mature trees and planter boxes fill out the grounds.

Malcomson has scores of television and film credits including “The Hunger Games” films and the shows “ER” and “Sons of Anarchy.” More recently, the Irish actress reprised her role as Trixie for “Deadwood: The Movie” and appeared in the series “Watchmen.”
