The modernist dream to unite architecture with nature is exquisitely realized in this mid century masterpiece circa 1958, well-located in Toluca Lake. Built by Armand Le Tourneau, the courtyard post-and-beam is sequestered down a long driveway amidst verdant surroundings.

Sunlight fills the interior that feels authentic and wonderfully preserved with extensive custom woodwork in the ceiling, paneling and built-ins; walls of glass create a perpetual state of indoor-outdoor flow.

Design highlights include the expansive living room with a brick fireplace, original kitchen cabinetry and a sun-splashed breakfast nook with bench seating, your serene haven to greet the day. Two spacious bedrooms and an office make it easy to achieve life/work balance; the courtyard focal-point beckons as your private and tranquil retreat.
