Long beloved by privacy-loving famous folk, Upper Nichols Canyon—a.k.a. the “Colony”—is also a bastion of pedigreed midcentury modern homes by architects such as Edward Fickett, Buff & Hensman, and Richard Dorman, who designed this classic post and beam on Nichols Canyon Road just north of Lolina Lane.
Built in 1958, the three-bedroom, two-bath was listed for sale for the first time in over 50 years in October. Marketed as a fixer, it traded hands in December for $1.425 million. Five months later, it’s circling back following a makeover courtesy of Studio Tim Campbell.
While original structural details such as beamed ceilings, walls of glass, clerestory windows, and pebbled concrete were kept, the house has been endowed with new kitchen and baths, new hardwood floors, new doors, a new roof, and updated electric, plumbing, and HVAC systems. It’s also got a new pool and fresh landscaping.
On a 12,409-square-foot lot, the polished property is now asking $2.189 million.
