3 Beds/3.5 Baths on 3,085 sqft on a total lot size of 8,086 ft built in 1961 by Benton & Park A.I.A. in Sherman Oaks. This home hit the market on June 27, 2013 for $879,900 which was previously purchased for $655,000 on April 30, 2013 which indicates that the home was flipped but not sure of the condition of this home at the time of the previous purchase. The listing description states:
Benton & Park AIA Mid-Century Modern architectural w/ 10' high ceilings & private pool. Donald Park was a student of, and later an employee of A. Quincy Jones. At the architectural firm of A. Quincy Jones & Frederick Emmons, employees Benton & Park met and later established their own firm by 1956; this is a classic example of the Architects brilliance. This 3 bed + 3.5 baths; 3100 sq ft home has been beautifully re-designed and includes a sexy outdoor loggia, new gourmet kitchen with two quartz stone countered bars that open to the large Family room w/ fireplace. The inviting Original Terrazzo/Atrium Entry leads you to impressive 10' Doorway and the Ballroom sized living room w/ hardwood floors & original marble fireplace and quartz rock wall. Formal dining room could double as an office/4th bedroom. Master suite w/ a wall of glass to pool/Loggia views , new bath and big closets. + two large sunny bedrooms w/ new bath. Great Secluded cul-de-sac Pocket and next to Valley Glen Park. .. .Go Go!
There isnt much available on the internet regarding Benton & Park but I believe they also designed the 70's disco/Las Vegas circular home in Encino which recently sold for around $1.9 million on July 28, 2011. Additionally, there is another Benton & Park designed home on Strawberry Drive currently available for $1,629,000 million listed on June 1, 2013.
