It’s here! It’s finally on the market!  I must say I’ve been super excited for this one. For starters, Encino Village might be one of my favorite little pockets in the valley.  There’s a sense of community here, and the houses and neighborhoods are just darling.

So where do I even begin on this one?  How about let’s start with Encino Village. Originally built in the 1950s, the Encino Village community was built for returning Vets and their new Baby Boomer households.  Ranging in size between 1400-1600SF, the neighborhood was designed by RK Stern (of Vegas hotels fame) to intentionally meander and circle around, thus avoiding most cross traffic. For more information, check out the Encino Village page of this website.

But back to this house.  From the very beginning, the home is light and airy – with great natural sunlight streaming through the space.  Laid out perfect for entertaining, many parties have been thrown here with love.  And the best part? The flow to the back yard allows for the warm summer nights to be spent out in the sunshine.  The current owners have done all sorts of extra little details to update it from its original mid-century roots.  Refinished original hardwood floors? Check.  Updated baths? Check. Recessed lighting? New A/C and furnace?  High-efficiency windows & doors? Check.  Check. Check.

But don’t take my word for it, come see for yourself.  Feel free to give me a call or email and check out for more information.
