1957 Mid-Century Modern By William Stephenson Hits Market For First Time Ever in Westwood

New, 27 comments


A onetime Arthur Murray dance instructor who married the daughter of Broadway impresario Florenz Ziegfeld, William R. Stephenson is best known for being the architect of Ronald Reagan's General Electric Showcase House. In 1956, the same year Ronnie and Nancy's house was built, Stephenson designed this Westwood residence for a non-celebrity couple named Harvey and Judy Flax. Per the listing, "Mr. and Mrs. Flax have meticulously maintained the architectural integrity of their home for over 57 years." Now on the market for the first time, the 3,186-square-foot house features four bedrooms, three baths (including a master bath with "walk in closet and safe"), walls of glass, twelve-foot-ceilings, a fireplace, pond, workshop, two-car garage, and "a dumb waiter from the garage to the kitchen." Sited on a 6,882-square-foot lot, it's asking $2.4 million.
