Rustic Canyon 1951 Mid-Century Modern First Timer on Market

724 Greentree Road, Rustic Canyon, Pacific Palisades - 1951 - $2,100,000
This 1951 Rustic Canyon mid-century modern 3 bedroom and 2 bathroom post and beam comes to market for the first time.  Nestled on over 12,000 square feet of land, 724 Greentree Road, Pacific Palisades 90272 is a treasure for any modern enthusiast looking for an untouched design.  It is currently listed for $2,100,000 with only one showing before offers are being accepted.  You will have to hurry if you want "in" on this beautiful property.  Open House is scheduled for Sunday, February 24 from 1pm to 4pm with offers to be received by Wednesday, February 27 at noon.
The covered walkway leads you to the entrance of this 2,026 square foot home with high ceilings and windows abound.  The stone fireplace is centrally located to keep you warm on those chilly canyon evenings.
Beautiful built-in storage with original lighting fixtures can be had with this mid-century beauty.  The practical built-in side board / buffet will hold the finest of china.  Walls of glass allow the optimum natural sunlight into the home which has a central living area with a sleeping wing and living / eating wing. 
The sun-drenched kitchen with a wall of windows and original turquoise Formica counter tops with the beautiful golden wood, makes me happy.  Plenty of room for eat-in. 
Now, onward to the sleeping wing through the living room.   
You will find spacious bedrooms in this home with many original shelving units and built-in shelving still intact.  Again, there is a lot of integrity within this mid-century modern gem. Of course, anyone would want some modern upgrades, but the bones of this home are wonderful.  I would definitely want to upgrade the bathrooms.
A quiet and peaceful back yard and patio area includes a 100 year-old oak!
The home is located just east of Chautauqua and south of Sunset Boulevard on a secluded cul-de-sac street for ultimate privacy and just blocks away from the Riviera Country Club.
