Developed in the post-WWII era, Sherman Oaks’ affluent Longridge Estates neighborhood is stocked with a fair number of midcentury moderns from such noted practitioners as Richard Dorman, Allen Siple, Ed Fickett, and the team of Wallace Benton and Donald Park, who designed this spiffy residence on Longridge Terrace in 1962.

Now seeking its third owner ever, the 3,480-square-foot house underwent a substantial renovation/restoration in 2004 that earned it coverage in both Sunset magazine and the popular website Design*Sponge.

The five-bedroom, three-bath home’s features include terrazzo and concrete slab floors, sliding glass walls, a horizontal stone fireplace, quartz countertops, and custom cabinetry, and a living room bar.

Exterior spaces appear to have been designed with entertaining and hosting as the top priority—in the backyard, you’ll find a sizable built-in barbecue station with sink, built-in seating, a kidney-shaped pool, and a circle-shaped spa.

On a .69-acre lot, the property is listed with an asking price of $2.595 million. Open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
