5786 VALLEY OAK DRNew to the Los Feliz market is this architectural home that is truly one of a kind. It features a main house redone by reknown mid-century architect Gregory Ain as well as a guest/pool house by Pierre Koenig. The main house features signature Gregory Ain details including clerestory windows, sliding walls, an open floor plan so common to the mid-century style, and a terrific indoor - outdoor flow. The gleaing hardwood floors and walls of window make for a very bright and expansive interior.
Gregory Ain was a mid-century American architect who worked primarily in the Los Angeles area and was known for bringing elements of modern architecture to lower- and medium-cost housing. Listed at $1,999,951, I wouldn't say this particular Los Feliz Oaks home falls into that category!
Separate from the main house is the steel beamed and poished concrete floored guest house which overlooks the homes refreshing lap pool. What's a house in the Oaks without some sort of pool? At least this one works for real swimmer and not jut the kids! The guest house was was designed by Pierre Koenig and was one of his last project. Koenig is known for having designed Case Study Houses No. 21 and 22 in 1960. . The property includes 4 bedrooms and 3 1/2 bathrooms in 2883 sq. ft of living space with a lot that spreads out over 16,850sf . That sure gives you some nice space from your neighbors!
