Magical Mid-Century in Woodland Hills, $1.6MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Originally designed in 1964 by noted Valley architect Ray Mosher, AIA, this handsome, 5-bed, 3.5-bath Post + Beam has been loved, buffed and polished over the past two decades by its owners, shoe designer and footwear entrepreneur Charles Brown and his wife, hairstylist Whitney Brown.
What We Love: This is not your recent, slick renovation, but a deeply personal home that’s clearly developed over the years. Plus it’s the perfect setting for a collection of Mid-Century furniture.
One of the best features is the classic Mid-Century atrium, sheltered from the sun by a lattice, with a koi pond and an ancient wooden gate leading to a deep lanai.
Above the pool, the huge site extends uphill with a series of terraces and paths, culminating in a cantilevered “treehouse”.
