Last year brought us to a global inflection point unlike any other, an era of collective clarity. Emerging from it, we’ve taken a closer look at what we love most — our incredible city, and the people, places, and real estate that make it home.
We also considered in what ways we could change for the better, our team taking this period of time to undergo a complete rebrand of Andrew Rhoda & Associates, one that we’re delighted to unveil at long last.
“Sophisticated and understated with an intelligent twist, we’re thrilled to welcome you to the new Andrew Rhoda & Associates.”
Every home has a unique story, which is why when we approached the Andrew Rhoda & Associates rebrand, we wanted to create a universe that was light, thoughtful, and considered — giving each listing the space and structure to organically bring its narrative to life. We sought to create and develop a kind of cohesion that would feel human and natural, embracing reality and imperfection. Playfulness and simplicity were also pillars of our design to create a vision that was as inclusive as it was aspirational.
At a time when the concept of home has become more important than ever before, we wanted to begin our first issue of At Home in LA with a curation of some of our favorite homes and the people behind them.
Still glowing from its 2016 renovation by LA Design firm Jette Creative, this 1920s Spanish revival effortlessly fuses past and present, creating an ethereal sense of timelessness. Carefully preserved historic details, such as paneled doors, cut-glass knobs and push-button light switches radiate amidst airy interiors with a modern identity.
The home’s new layout flows from the front door through the living room, dining area and kitchen, where a set of double French doors opens to a spacious deck and lawn. The bedrooms occupy a private wing that includes a sunny corner owners’ retreat with an ensuite bath with a sumptuous shower. Featured in Dwell and MyDomaine, it’s no wonder this Spanish escape had 12 offers and sold for 2M, 10% over asking.
A lush retreat nestled among the tree-lined streets of Beverly Grove, this timeless, 1920s English Revival was tastefully reimagined by the illustrious local architect, William Hefner. Enveloped in ivy and dotted with fragrant roses, this ultra-private abode sits on a 7,150-square foot lot and was custom designed with the quintessence of craftsmanship.
Showcasing Hefner’s talent for merging luxury and simplicity, the home has been lavishly decorated by famed interior designer, Jake Arnold. Exhibiting the sought-after designer’s penchant for moody, monochromatic touches, a decadently dark dining room is framed in French doors. The heart of the home, a fireplace-clad great room with sunlit dining nook bleeds into a stunning kitchen, fully remodeled with Calacatta marble counters and top-of-the-line appliances.
With its close proximity to award-winning schools, high-end grocers, and Melrose Avenue’s buzzing boutiques and eateries, this one-of-a-kind home leaves nothing to be desired.
Echoing with the breezy, bohemian flair synonymous with Venice Beach, this light-soaked condo offers an open floor plan with soaring ceilings, skylights, and hardwoods throughout. Located in one of Venice’s most coveted coastal enclaves and landscaped with lush palms, this front-facing unit spans 1,637 square feet.
Framed in oversized windows and appointed with a sleek decorative fireplace, this modern three-bedroom, three-bathroom, boasts a voluminous living room that bleeds seamlessly into a large outdoor patio. A central dining area lies adjacent to a newly renovated kitchen with stainless appliances, glossy quartz countertops, and updated cabinets.
Offering ultimate privacy, a lengthy hallway separates a trio of bedrooms, including two spacious master suites with ample closet space.
The epitome of Venice living in the heart of “Silicon Beach,” this coastal retreat is situated just blocks from Abbot Kinney’s hip coffee shops, boutiques, and eateries.
The “Gibson House,” by architect Gerard Colcord, circa 1927, is an exquisite English Tudor Revival that blends old-world craftsmanship with modern-day convenience. Built on a generous 11,0000-square foot lot, the lush compound offers a four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom main residence, detached guest house, garage, picturesque patio, pool and beautifully manicured gardens which offer privacy and refinement down to the detail.
Lined in hardwoods and appointed with exquisite millwork, arched entryways lead guests from one room to the next. Reimagined with modern fixtures and finishes, a stunning kitchen with coffered ceilings features marble countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and a floating island. The heart of the home, an impressive great room with cathedral ceilings is furnished with a fireplace and leaded windows that invite warmth and a plethora of natural light.
Nestled in the hills above Sunset Boulevard, is this 1930’s jewel box home that perfectly coalesces a captivating mix of modern and traditional design influences. The unmistakable touch of Parisian designer, Jean-Louis Deniot, has been artfully applied to every inch of this, three-bedroom, three-bathroom, abode, punctuated with meandering pathways and verdant greenery on an oversized, 15,177-square foot parcel.
Lovingly transformed and listed for the first time since being reimagined, the home’s timeless Tudor façade belies a Spanish-style interior appointed with arched alcoves and entryways. Recently featured in Architectural Digest, luxe materials mingle in a concerto of textured plaster, hand-chiseled stone, stained wood, and large oak plank flooring, while voluminous rooms are adorned with rustic fireplaces, languid daybeds, and vintage side tables.
Completely remodeled and reimagined, the immaculate 2,715-square foot home was deliberately designed to create a seamless, indoor-outdoor flow. Seducing guests outward to al fresco entertainment areas, bubbling fountains mingle with traces of citrus and lavender in a sweet symphony for the senses.
An idyllic departure from everyday life, this meticulously conceived Hollywood Hills escape offers effortless living like no other.
We hope our first issue of At Home in LA has left you inspired and we once again welcome you to our new site.
Take a look around and make yourself at home!
