This Encino residence was designed by midcentury architect Edward Fickett in 1956. In 2016, it still fits right in. The house’s bright white interior, French white oak hardwood floors, and "Strategically placed fenestration" help to keep the interior spaces bright. The dwelling’s floor plan won an award in 1954 from the National Association of Home Builders, says listing agent Steve Ward.
The 2,720-square-foot residence has high-end appliances in its ample kitchen, which offers views of the backyard with its pool and spa.
The master suite is separate from the three other bedrooms, offering privacy. Two of the bedrooms adjoin, separated by an accordion door that’s original to the house. The third, non-adjoining bedroom has its own en-suite bathrooms.
Situated on nearly a half acre, the Fickett will go on the market Wednesday, asking $2.199 million.
