Interesting facts about the property: This Mid Century Modern home was built in 1951 by a Lockheed engineer who had studied the early writing by Aline Saarinen (wife of Eero Saarinen) on passive solar heating. Facing directly South, the house’s windows, with a carefully calculated overhang, admit sun during the winter months that heats the living room and master bedroom. In summer, when the sun crosses the sky at a higher azimuth, these rooms remain shaded and cool. From about 1972-1975, Emmy Award-winning actress Rue McClannahan, of The Golden Girls, occupied the residence. From 1975-1977, Herbert Kahn, architect and principal partner of Kahn, Kappe and Lottery, was a resident of the house. The house was remodeled in approximately 1989 by longtime Palisades architect Harry Bornstein. The current owners remodeled in 2002 and 2008, adding a pool and updating the bathrooms and kitchen, while respecting the integrity of the original Mid Century Modern design.
