This swanky Laurel Canyon home occupies .69 tree- and grass-filled acres and offers enough windows to really take it all in.
Designed in 1953 by architect Robert Thorguson, then a recent graduate of architecture school at USC, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house incorporates many hallmarks of the period, including huge walls of glass and sliding glass doors, clerestory windows, and a post and beam construction.
A glass-walled communal room is flanked by the pool and the forest-like backyard, and throughout, the proliferation of glass windows allows the line between indoor and outdoor to be blurred.
The residence also boasts two wood-burning fireplaces, radiant-heated concrete floors, and wood paneling.
Located at 8956 Wonderland Park Avenue, the residence is said to be one of the “three very special houses” designed and built by Thorguson for himself, the listing says. Last sold in 1999 for $810,000, the residence is now listed for $3.79 million. Sasha Anthome-Kuzemka and Sherri Rogers of Compass have the listing.
