The jacarandas are in bloom, their dreamy haze dotting the streets and piling up like lilac snow — your sign that LA summer is rolling in. We’re packing picnics to catch movies at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, gathering friends for free jazz at LACMA and sunsets at the beach, and planning concert jaunts at the Hollywood Bowl (the lineup this year is amazing). Just in time, the market is brimming with properties that spell a stylish, architectural summer. We did some research and curated homes where you can elevate your summer lifestyle in the greatest city in California. Read on to see an award-winning modern, a pair of inspiring mid-centuries, and a blissful Spanish-style abode — and get in touch to let us know which one you’d like to visit.

The ‘Callow’ Residence

The first home that whispers summer is the “Callow” Residence, designed by Corsini Stark Architects. This modern residence is stunning and special, having been recognized with a 2018 Merit Award from the AIA. Inspired by modernist aesthetics, the property features a dramatic facade composed of intersecting wing-like slabs, a serene California landscape dotted with palms, an open floor plan, custom lighting, and a chef’s kitchen. The outdoor area is a tranquil oasis, perfect for unwinding. Offered at $2,600,000.
