4 Beds/1.75 Baths on 1,854 sqft on a total lot size of 9,341 sqft built in 1956 listed for $1,295,000 in Sherman Oaks. This home was first listed on August 23, 2014 for $1,195,000. So despite no takers since August, the asking price bumped up $100k on January 28, 2015. 

This mid century modern home is designed by Ed 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 confirm if this home was truly a Fickett design so relying on the realtor and/or owner for accuracy. A similar unverified home in Sherman Oaks by Fickett can be found here. However, confirmed Fickett homes in Sherman Oaks through SurveyLA are located at 3461 Cody Road, 3676 Meadville Drive, 3695 Scadlock Ave, 14145 Mulholland Drive (Fire Station #99), and 3775 Woodcliff Road.
