Architect John L. Pugsley created this wonderful contemporary style home in his Modernistic Style of architecture, that features the primary living area on the second level of the home, which allows for wonderful light filled rooms and striking vistas. Pugsley, who had worked with John Galbreth, Breo Freeman and Bennett and Bennett, designed several homes in the area. Every room in the house has been restored, with new custom surfaces and lighting fixtures.
The result is a striking combination of the original 1962 design and the modern aesthitics and conveniences of today. The home includes a dramatic living/dining room with fireplace. The open floor plan flows from one room to the next, creating a more urban feel, yet the home is surrounded by lush gardens and numerous outdoor areas.
The floor plan includes a family room adjacent to the kitchen, which features Viking appliances and custom surfaces. This wonderful space opens to the spa and pool area, as well. There are five bedroom and five bathrooms, in total. The generously sized primary suite has floor to ceiling windows and a view of the mountains.
The bedrooms are all ensuite . All bathrooms have been updated. The first level bedroom suite opens to a glass enclosed patio that can be multi purpose with easy access to the pool and spa, as well.
The outdoor entertaining areas include a pergola covered patio adjacent to the pool and spa. A motor port and two car garage is located near the entrance gate of the compound and has convenient access to the entry and down stairs bedroom suite.
The property, sited on almost half an acre, is walled and gated creating a serene setting, yet is located only minutes to South Lake shopping and restaurants, The Langham Hotel, Polytechnic School, Caltech and The Huntington Library and Gardens. Encino Drive is an idyllic canyon setting located conveniently to all the community has to offer.
