Stunning But Douchified Mid-Century Modern in Sherman Oaks Asking $4.2M

New, 28 comments

We hardly recognized this Sherman Oaks residence by Modernist architect and long-time architecture instructor Bernard Zimmerman. Since it went up for sale back in 2012, it's been thoroughly redone—the owners have removed most of the weird white tiles everywhere (even the bedrooms) and put in multi-toned, presumably reclaimed wood, a bathtub in the master bedroom that resembles the white of half of a hardboiled egg, and made the floating staircase even more terrifying.

The nearly 7,000-square-foot house is still breezy, open, and brightly lit from all those floor-to-ceiling windows, and the property includes a swimming pool, a koi pond that flows from the front gate to the inside of the five-bedroom house, and a tennis court, plus spectacular views of the Valley. Last sold in 2013 for $2.29 million, it's now listed for $4.195 million.
