1959 Model Home in a Gated Mid-Century Modern Tract on an Encino Hilltop Asking $1.6 Million

New, 18 comments


On nearly one acre of hilltop in Encino sits this 2,655-square-foot Mid-Century Modern packed with classic features like clerestory windows, walls of glass, beamed ceilings, stone floors, and teak built-ins; outside, there's a pool and a generous lawn. The dwelling's vantage point offers "panoramic, unobstructed views" of the surrounding valleys, the listing boasts, and the spot has a nice bit of architectural backstory too: "In 1959 award winning builder/contractor Stanley Martson and young Ed Fickett created this stunning see through glass house. Situated on a private, gated street of only 10 Martson built houses, 4552 was the premier model of Martson's development." (It was supposedly even photographed for LIFE magazine.) Last sold for $1.12 million in 2013, according to PropertyShark, it's now listed for $1.595 million.
