Situated atop a private flag lot in the Knollwood Country Club Estates of Granada Hills sits this exceptional Mid-Century Modern custom home. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the long private driveway reveals a gorgeous home with many unique features.
Entering into the living space one finds gorgeous terrazzo floors, a grand dual-fireplace with statement chimney, soaring 17-foot ceilings, custom glass and doors throughout. The fabulous kitchen has been updated with modern touches while maintaining its mid-century flair. Boasting 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms across over 4000 square feet, this home is truly a statement piece. Originally built by Joe B. Jordan, A.I.A. (architect of many notable structures around the San Fernando Valley) in 1960, this home has been lovingly cared for through the years and still displays many of its original mid-century bones.
The covered patio area creates wonderful indoor/outdoor living experience while featuring a free-form swimmer’s pool augmented by solar heating system that’s perfect for entertaining throughout the year.
The exterior is outfitted with new garage doors, custom front door, and electric vehicle charger. The surrounding outdoor areas have been outfitted with synthetic turf and drought-tolerant landscaping to minimize watering while still preserving the aesthetics.
Perhaps one of the most unique features of this home is the “bomb shelter.” Behind a code-locked door is a stairwell that leads to a remnant of those days gone by. Perfect for an office, game room, or whatever you can create, it has its own bathroom and is a great bonus space. The 4-car garage is already set up for the do-it-yourselfer.
