Today’s house to share comes from Encino Village, a fantastic community of 400 homes built on RKO Encino Ranch’s former land.

Built in the 50’s by Martin J. Stern (who later went on to hotel-casino fame by building in Las Vegas with the most notable being MGM Grand) the neighborhood was designed to meander so that people didn’t just pass straight through, but took their time and enjoyed the sidewalk-lined streets and ‘modest modern’ design.

Today’s home is 17217 Tiara Street.  Lovingly and meticulously cared for by a couple for the last 35 years, this home sits in the bend of a rare east-west street, on a larger lot, with a bigger square footage.  Pretty great, right?!

The stats:
1709 square feet
4 bedrooms
2 full baths, 1 3/4 bath
6,302 square foot lot
Built in 1956
2 car attached garage

Look at that curb appeal!
Entering into the large living room, you’ll find wood floors, a gas fireplace, and a wall of floor to ceiling windows walking out to the backyard.

To the right of the front door, the guest bedroom and 3/4 bath.  Direct access from the garage feeds into the bedroom, so it would be a PERFECT office or den.

On the other side of the house are two more guest bedrooms, a full bath to share, and an entire master suite–a rarity in Encino Village.

The master suite hosts a private bathroom and dressing area.  Found at the back of the house, a private door to the backyard helps bring the outside in.

What a fantastic lot!  Wider than most in Encino Village, this home has a private fenced yard that is fully lanscaped.  Imagine a summer dinner party on the patio!
