This mid-century ranch in Beverly Hills Post Office has us enchanted and mystified in equal measure. While we suppose it's technically possible for the home's owners to have faithfully preserved its shagadelic 60s-70s aesthetic in amber for four decades, such a feat seems terribly unlikely. Especially when you consider that the five-bedroom, five-bath house is, as its listing mentions, on a "private guarded celebrity street" populated by the likes of Jessica Simpson, Ellen and Portia, and Kimora Lee Simmons. Which brings up another possibility: was the 3,477-square-foot residence staged to endow it with all that pristine Brady Bunch glory? This scenario also strikes us as highly unlikely given the limited appeal such a marketing strategy would have with the already-small pool of potential buyers. But who knows? One thing we do know: regardless of the reason behind the house's resolutely retro appearance, we think it's peachy-keen. Asking price for the 18,300-square-foot property is $3.95 million.
