A Redwood-Clad Mid-Century Gem in Los Angeles Comes Fully Restored

Location: Beverly Hills, California Price: $10 million The Rowan Residence is a Mid-Century Modern masterpiece by architect Robert Skinner, nestled within the enviable Beverly Hills gated enclave of Hidden Valley Estates. Built in 1961, the iconic home was photographed in 1964 by Julius Shulman and featured in Taschen’s tome “Modernism Rediscovered,” according to listing agent Tori Barnao. The seller is noted talent agent Greg Cavic, whose clients include actors like Will Ferrell and Chris Pratt, according to Mr. Barnao. He and his wife, Jessica Cavic, bought the home in 2012 from the architect Bruce Beckett—who had owned it since the late ’60s—and hired the well-regarded Los Angeles architect John Bertram to undertake a restoration, in collaboration with interior designer Sarah Shetter and Judy Kameon of Elysian Landscapes. “Bertram dove deep into the project, extensively researching the home’s original plans and referring to the Julius Shulman photographs in order to perform as authentic a restoration as possible,” Mr. Barnao said. “Any element of the restoration that doesn’t directly reflect the original plans at least maintains a ’60s vibe, honoring the time period.” The restoration incorporated redwood tongue-and-groove interior and exterior siding, Douglas fir furniture-grade custom cabinetry, terrazzo flooring and specialty lighting, while balancing personal spaces with a sprawling central open-plan warren of common spaces. Walls of glass throughout—combined with an impressive outdoor space complete with pool, lounge area and verdant gardens—facilitate an indoor-outdoor lifestyle.

Talent agent Greg Cavic floats a pristine Midcentury in the 90210

Talent agent Greg Cavic is used to inking deals for celebrity clients, but now he’s eyeing a contract for his Beverly Hills Post Office home. The Midcentury home he has owned for nine years is on the market for $9.35 million. Cavic — who left Creative Artists Agency for United Talent Agency in 2015 as part of a mass exodus that CAA called a “lawless, midnight raid” — shelled out $3.49 million for the property in 2012, records show. Over the last few years, he oversaw a major restoration that brought the Midcentury gem back to its former glory. Perched in the gated enclave of Hidden Valley Estates, the handsome home was built in 1961 by Robert Skinner and later starred in Julius Schulman’s book “Modernism Rediscovered.” Architect John Bertram worked with designer Sarah Shetter on the renovation, bringing in Douglas fir furniture, terrazzo floors, new fixtures and vibrant redwood accents both inside and out.
