This stylish Mid-Century Modern post-and-beam ranch with A-frame entry was built circa 1960 by noted architect Webster Wiley, AIA for SoCal big band leader Val Grayson and offers a rare opportunity to own a restored architectural treasure. Exemplifying the hallmarks of Wiley’s California indoor/outdoor design ethos, the home is built around his signature atrium entry. Extensive use of glass and angular clerestory windows provide abundant, natural light throughout. Guests enter the residence through the enclosed atrium featuring a koi pond and walls lined with jasmine vines, papyrus stands & red kangaroo paw before arriving in the home’s bright interior through walls of sliding glass doors.
Having undergone an extensive, top-to-bottom renovation in 2005 featured in the Los Angeles Times and Atomic Ranch magazine, with additional renovations in 2012, this home is a perfect new nest for architecture aficionados looking for a turnkey, move-in ready experience. A redesigned cook's kitchen features Caesarstone counters, Dal Tile backsplash, ceramic tile flooring, Franke faucet, and stainless steel appliances, including Bosch double ovens. Exceptionally livable, this home offers the ultimate year-round indoor/outdoor experience and a flowing, open floor plan which also allows for private space. Sliding glass doors in the main house open to a salt water pool and spa, covered lanai and semi-detached living quarters (4th bedroom/ poolhouse/ studio) with fireplace, private bath, walk-in closet, ductless A/C and tankless water heater. Relax by the pool, entertain guests or enjoy dining al fresco against a backdrop of the peaks of the Los Angeles National Forest above and the city lights of Los Angeles below. The possibilities are endless!
Upgrades too numerous to list include electrical and plumbing systems; dual pane, low-e Milgaard windows and sliding glass doors; foam resin roof; repainted interior and exterior; solid-core wood bedroom doors; Arakawa art gallery hanging system; walls of garage storage cabinets and so much more. Two-car garage and Top schools. It’s time to come home.
