Built in 1953 and designed by Calvin Straub, the man whom architectural historian Esther McCoy once dubbed the "Father of California Post and Beam Architecture," this four-bedroom home in LA's Mandeville Canyon community hits all the right notes for a West Coast mid-century modern. Vaulted beamed ceilings? Yup. Concrete slab flours? Totally. Walls of glass? Mais oui, c'est vrai. The listing describes it as ideal for the "purchaser whose perfect home acquisition must fuse art with life," while over at Curbed LA, the general consensus is an unequivocal "add a pool and I'm there!" Last sold all the way back in 1986 for $580K, the home, which measures about 2,454 square feet and sits on a half-an-acre plot, is currently listed at an asking price of $2.295M.
