Built by the notable builder William Mellenthin & architect Leo F. Bachman AIA circa 1952, this iconic birdhouse ranch home is the perfect celebration of quality for valley homes built in the post-war era. The gable rooftop & iconic birdhouse design highlight this classic Mellenthin build. Resting on stacked brick are diamond paned windows, situated near the front porch and a red front door which opens to this 3 bd 2 ba home. Classic well-maintained three quarter inch oak floors pave the way to the open living area with vaulted high-beamed ceilings, anchored by the dual-sided, brick wood burning fireplace. Separate dining area, designates space for the one-time cherished daily ritual of family meal time. Sizable galley kitchen has breakfast nook, natural light, with preserved dual Mellenthin glass block design. Later expanded, the enclosed patio area complements the home’s original layout, while allowing for more living space, opening to the lushly landscaped private backyard, featuring large swimming pool and a great outdoor space for gatherings or barbecues. In one of the truly special neighborhoods in Van Nuys, this home rivals some of the best areas in the south valley, with the same mirror image design, at a more attractive price point.
