It’s always a treat to encounter a vintage residence that has somehow remained immune to the sands of time. And it’s especially remarkable to discover such a property in the rarefied environs of Bel Air, but that’s exactly what we have here.

Now on the market for the first time is a midcentury ranch not far from the Getty that was home for more than six decades to architect Jack Zuber and his wife, Marilyn Miller Zuber, who worked for architectural visionary Charles Moore at UCLA’s Urban Innovations Group. According to listing agent Gerilyn Jelonek, Jack Zuber designed the 2,964-square-foot residence himself.

Offered in a trust sale, the well-preserved home features three bedrooms, three baths, wood-paneled walls, a St. Charles kitchen, Jack-and-Jill sinks, a stacked-brick fireplace, hidden wet bar, and a bounty of built-ins. There’s also a covered patio, a swimming pool, and a two-car garage with workshop.

Asking price for the .33-acre property has been cut from $2.6 million to $2.3 million.
