Even in such an architecturally blessed enclave as Crestwood Hills, the Franks House is a standout. Rising three stories up through the trees, the redwood-and-glass residence was designed by USC-trained architect Raúl Garduno in 1966. According to Historic Places LA, Garduno designed the home while working in the office of William Krisel.
Located at 1249 North Tigertail Road, the two-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath home has been “meticulously maintained,” per its listing.
Measuring 2,506 square feet, it features a koi pond with waterfall at its entry, tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings, redwood paneling, cork walls, a floating staircase, a double-height living room, a wet bar, two fireplaces, and floor-to-ceiling banks of windows serving up killer canyon and ocean views. The home also has multiple spacious terraces with sizable planter boxes for gardening and a four-car carport.
On a 14,009-square-foot lot, the property is asking $3.4 million. Aaron Kirman of Compass has the listing.
