Yet another pedigreed midcentury modern in sylvan Nichols Canyon is up for grabs. Known as the Robert L. Hendershot House, this choice piece of real estate was designed by Richard Neutra in 1962, and has had only one owner.

Located on Westbrook Avenue a little south of Woodrow Wilson Drive, the L-shaped residence contains three bedrooms, two baths, and two living rooms within its multiple levels. There’s also a separate workshop/studio.

Embracing the California Modern motif of merging the indoors and out, the home has vast expanses of glass and numerous decks and patios. Other stylistic elements include stacked-stone fireplaces, skylights, floating staircases, hardwood floors, high ceilings, and built-in seating and shelving.

The property is surrounded by lush vegetation, and while there’s no swimming pool, there is a brook with a bridge.

Asking price is $1.995 million, and open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
