Interior designer to the stars Waldo Fernandez has flipped a restored 1961 house in Hollywood Hills West for $1.325 million.
The Midcentury Modern-style Warshawsky Residence, designed by architect Volker Traub, was an investment and renovation project for the serial home remodeler. Sited to take in city and canyon views, the 1,452-square-foot house features walls of glass, a fireplace, a den, three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Fernandez started as a set designer on the 1960s films "Doctor Dolittle" and "Planet of the Apes." He worked on the face-lift of the Beverly Hills Hotel for Merv Griffin in the late 1980s, and his celebrity clients have included Brad Pitt, Tobey Maguire, Elizabeth Taylor and Goldie Hawn.
The designer paid $890,000 for the property a year ago, public records show.
Eric Lavey of Teles Properties was the listing agent. Michelle Nissani of the same office represented the buyer.
