15573 Briarwood Drive
3 Bed/2 Bath on 1,945 sqft on a total lot size of 0.26 acres built in 1955 in Sherman Oaks. The Fickett home is listed for $1,199,000 on April 2, 2014 and was last purchased on October 9, 2009 for $779,000.

According to the listing description, this home was designed by notable architect, Edward Fickett, who was dubbed the "creator of the San Fernando Valley" and the "Frank Lloyd Wrigt of the 50's." He has designed more than 60,000 structures including the pool complex at the Van Nuys-Sherman Oaks Park, the extension of the Nethercutt Antique Car Museum in Sylmar, the original Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, the passenger and cargo terminals at the Port of Los Angeles, Dodger Stadium, the Los Angeles Police Academy, and devised the master plans for the Edwards and Norton Air Force bases (LA Times and Daily News). 

I wasnt able to verify this home being specifically designed by Fickett but he designed so many homes if the SFV that there is a good possibility that this is a Fickett home. However, I was able to verify Fickett designed homes in the Sherman Oaks area located at 3461 Cody Road, 3676 Meadville Drive, 3695 N Scadlock Lane, 14145 Mulholland Drive (Fire Station #99), 3755 N Woodcliff Road, and in the Encino area at 16605 W Oldham Street (possible altered) and 16642 W Oldham Street through SurveyLA (Encino and Sherman Oaks). So buy with caution. 

The listing description states:
Palm Springs in Sherman Oaks! Edward H. Fickett, FAIA designed mid-century architectural with a pool and panoramic city views. Sophisticated 3 bedroom, 2 bath house, incredible windows, beams and fireplace with a fantastic indoor-outdoor feel. Perfect for entertaining.

  1. What a beautiful property. I loved it. But I think the property is bit too pricy.
