The year was 1955, Eisenhower had just become president and the post war San Fernando Valley was booming with distinctive architecture by Mellenthin, Eichler and May. The Mid Century California “Bird House” was one such signature design. 4941 Escobedo Dr. is a quiet little street South of the Blvd. in Woodland Hills. Perched atop a long drive, there’s views of the Woodland Hills Riviera from the kitchen and the city lights of the Valley sparkle through the office. Like a time capsule, this sensational home captures the style of the period. The classic details have been preserved. The wood windows are beautiful, the 2” solid oak floors gleam; the yellow Dal tile has been impeccably maintained including the leaf and rooster accents. The O’Keefe and Merritt gas oven looks like it was just delivered and the cooktop is exquisite. With 4 beds and 2.5 baths plus office, this wonderful pool home has been gently expanded to accommodate the modern family. The Dutch door to the carport, the cross hatch screened front door, the stunning beamed ceiling, the paneling, the floor to ceiling built-in brick BBQ – it’s all here just waiting for you, good friends, your martini shaker and maybe even some Honeymooners reruns. Great schools too!
