MID CENTURY MODERN ESTATE
A rare architectural gem, this meticulously preserved 1958 mid-century modern estate offers a unique blend of history, innovative design, and luxurious living. This nearly one-acre estate is tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac with just 11 other homes of the era. As the original and ONLY family to live here, the founder of Electro Music- Leslie Speakers, spared no expense crafting their perfect entertainers paradise.

Recently updated with impeccable attention to detail, the 5 bedroom, 4 bath main residence has been refreshed and remodeled including new interior and exterior paint, new flooring, remodeled kitchen with Cafe' appliances, and renovated bathrooms, new HVAC systems, LED lighting and modern period fixtures. Imported Italian Terrazzo floors, 3 fireplaces, and extensive remodel updates make this true California living.

The grounds are equally impressive with a north/south tennis court, pool with changing cabanas, exterior 3/4 bath, Japanese garden with new fountain, new landscaping. There are exterior buildings totaling 1116 feet that included a media room/ party room (possible ADU) and work room.

You will even find construction blueprints from noted architect Marion J Varner, whose works include the Burbank Federal Building and City of Bell library.

This incredible property blends vintage architecture with todays modern amenities in a ultra- private and serene setting perfect for entertainers, families, and those with an appreciation for iconic mid-century modern design.
