I would have made a covered porch at the front door somehow.

I guess maybe I am getting too picky...but I think they went a little crazy with the white paint. What is wrong with a little contrast say between the T&G ceilings and beams? Why not let wood walls be wood walls? It looks less vintage and too Dwell for my taste.

Yes, I feel the same. But I love the outside of the house, especially the front. The roof is exceptionel.

We went to the open house yesterday. The house is amazing but actually does need some work. It does not have any city views. It sits facing east like the house Zorin Balbes recently redid in the bird streets to the west.

All that 12" tile needs to go. The kitchen was redone at some point, I would guess in the 80s. It is all wrong for the house. There are some uneven floor transitions between the original house and the addition. The broker says the current dining room and the sauna & bath behind it were added. Zillow lists a renovation in 1960 so maybe that was done when Darin & Dee moved in. The broker suggested ripping out the wall between the master and the bedroom next to it but I thought the master was plenty huge as it was. The closet could have been another bedroom! The master bath was also redone recently but they kept the original sinks. The rest of the bath is a little too modern but I think I could suffer through. :roll:

The overall vibe is the best part of the house. This house is begging for big parties. I could totally see guests arriving through the front door, immediately getting a martini at the big bar and waiting for Sandra Dee (back in the day) to come out the double doors of the bedroom and down that long hall to great her guests. 8-)

Dee-Darin home is cool, Daddy-o

Hotelier Jason Pomeranc has purchased a former Hollywood Hills home of actress Sandra Dee and singer Bobby Darin for about $3 million, and now he has hired Brad Dunning to restore the classic Midcentury showpiece.

The home was built in 1955 and has five bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in 4,200 square feet.

Pomeranc, 36, is co-owner of a Manhattan-based company that manages hotels, and he owns hotels on both coasts. He intends to remain bicoastal after the Dee-Darin house is restored.

Dunning has worked on other celebrities' homes, including the residence of Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher.

Lisa Chamberlain of Sotheby's International Realty, Los Feliz, represented both sides of the transaction.
