Aerospace Engineer Turned Architect in Sherman Oaks

New, 16 comments

According to the listing, this five-bedroom, three-bath mid-century home in the Royal Woods neighborhood of Sherman Oaks, was designed by Harry Drell. More about Drell: "As an aerospace engineer at Lockheed, this designer won awards for top-secret aircraft; at home, the Renaissance Man inspired his family as a fine artist, photographer, furniture maker and musician....A forward-looking open plan connects living, dining and kitchen, while sliding room dividers and pocket doors allow for flexibility...Tall ceilings and walls of glass look out to the expansive yard and swimming pool beyond. All original finishes remain intact: stainless steel countertops, decorative tile, custom built-ins and period light fixtures – even the original mod paint scheme and ornamental motifs." On the market for the first time in more than 50 years, the home is asking $849,000.
