Currently in a pending status is a rare listing of a Longridge Estate home designed by Gerard Colcord in Sherman Oaks in 1939. This home is offered at $2,749,000.

According to the listing:
First time on the market in 43 years, is this wonderful 1939 Country French home designed by renowned architect Gerard Colcord. This special property is located in the prestigious Longridge Estates and boasts gated entry, liv. rm w/ frpl, frml din, eat-in-kit, 5 bed, 6 bth, den. Flat prk-like grnds, pl, and full guesthouse. Great opportunity to make this your own. 
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: 
  1. Waxman House in Studio City.
  2. Goodwin House in Studio City.
  3. Romick House in Encino.
  4. Krisel House in Van Nuys. 
  5. Eichler House in Granada Hills.
