Buy a Festive 1948 Time Capsule With Soda Fountain in Encino

New, 45 comments


It's not Friday yet, but here's a nice flashback for you. Located in Encino's Royal Oaks neighborhood, this pink Colonial Revival was built in 1948. According to the listing copy, the house hasn't changed hands in more than 55 years, and, judging by the listing photos, some pretty festive times have been had in this time capsule. Features of the six-bedroom, four-and-a-half-bath residence include a wood-paneled living room with a built-in, clamshell-shaped bar; a large eat-in kitchen with hand-painted tiles, bright yellow brick flooring, and a professional-grade soda fountain; three fireplaces; and an amoeba-shaped swimming pool with diving board and slide. There's also wacky wallpaper up the wazoo and shag carpeting in the bathrooms, but hey, different strokes. Sited on a .4-acre lot, the 4,488-square-foot house is listed in a trust sale at $1.795 million.
