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 fallout of the housing bubble. But you have the following:
- Waxman House in Studio City.
- Goodwin House in Studio City.
- Romick House in Encino.
- Krisel House in Van Nuys.
- Eichler House in Granada Hills.
