Drawing the spotlight to the Valley for a change, here's Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #952, aka Tarzana's Kaye House. Built in 1963, the two-story modern is the last house that architect Gregory Ain designed in California. According to its Cultural Heritage Commission application (pdf), the 3,167 square foot residence received a 2004 restoration/renovation by Fung + Blatt that reconfigured the master bedroom and introduced built-in furniture based on Ain's original plans. Sited on a .35 acre lot, the property features four bedrooms, two and three-quarter baths, pocket shoji screens, hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, two fireplaces, a swimming pool, and spa. Last sold in 2008 for $1.35 million, the property, which qualifies for Mills Act tax breaks, is now listed at $1.395 million.
