Raul F. Garduno Architecture: "The Franks House", 1966
I'm a big fan of architect Raul F. Garduno after discovering another of his works, The Fleming Drefeld House (see photo at bottom) in the Moreno Highlands area of Silver Lake. So, I am happy to see Garduno's The Franks House, pop onto market yesterday. After a few years taken off of the sales market and being rented by the owner, the 1966 mid-century modern comes back to market with a modest increase in pricing. In 2010, the home was offered for $2,295,000 and then reduced to $1,795,000 in 2011. Today, it is being offered for $1,900,000!
Soon after the LA Conservancy's Home Sixties Home homes tour in 2010, the owner placed this hillside post and beam made from California Redwoods. With views overlooking Crestwood Hills Park and out to the ocean, this home should not be missed this time around. I would also like to note it is also is being offered for lease. The first public open house is scheduled for Sunday, November 3, 12-4pm. If you would like to schedule an appointment to see this home, feel free to email me or call me, 213-305-8537.
Upon entry through the carport, you are greeted by mid-century architectural details and a lovely koi pond and garden area. With a wall of glass to allow the outdoors in, the foyer has exposure to natural light and canyon views.
This home does not have a garage.
