Currently available on the market is a rare listing of the Waxman House designed by Barry Moffitt, A.I.A. in 1964 in Studio City. This home is being offered at $1,099,000 which was first listed on January 06, 2012 at $1,199,000. This home was last purchased for $720,000 on December 17, 2001.

According to the listing:
BACK ON MARKET. Rare offering. Nestled in the hills, just above Studio City lies this magnificent example of mid-century architecture. The Waxman House, Circa 1964, designed by Barry Moffitt, AIA. Massive volumes, light streaming through clerestory and vertical windows, original clear heart redwood paneling throughout. 3 bedrooms, 1 3/4 baths, with additional office and terraced outdoor spaces. Home was published in HOME magazine and photographed by Julius Shulman. Strolling distance from acclaimed Carpenter School and minutes from studios.
There have been a number of mid century modern homes of architectural significance on the market recently. Its kinda odd. Dont know why owners are selling these rare properties all at the same time especially in the San Fernando Valley. Maybe its related to the housing bubble. But you have the Goodwin House in Studio City, Romick House in Encino, Krisel House in Van Nuys, and an Eichler House in Granada Hills. Take your pick. Below are pics of the Waxman house.
