The Tanner House from 1951 sits atop sunny, verdant Wonderland Park in Laurel Canyon. The hillside community of 67 homes was master-planned by modern landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, who himself was once a resident. Eckbo's mid-century plantings can still be seen throughout the modernist community - he sought to create unified park-like settings for the homes with landscaping that continued from one property to the next. The architectural continuity of mid-century modern homes is the result of an architectural review board who ensured the homes, some of which were designed by architect Gregory Ain, would be contemporary in design.The Tanner House is no exception - the flat-roofed home with expressed structure is a testament to modern design from the mid 20th century. The property's large flat lot allows for easy connections between the interior and exterior spaces. Bright and airy living spaces flow into each other and then outside through the large glass openings that also embrace the home's canyon treetop views. Decks for dining and lounging are located off the home's social spaces, while private gardens encompass the bedrooms and bathrooms. Two well-appointed bathrooms feature floor to ceiling glass walls with leafy views. One of the bedrooms is en suite and opens directly to the side garden. The other two bedrooms overlook the natural plantings of the Laurel Canyon Hillside that borders the property.The home is located in the award-winning Wonderland Avenue School district and adjacent to the famed Mulholland Tennis Club. It's cul-de-sac location midway up Laurel Canyon Boulevard also allows for easy access to both Hollywood and Studio City.
