Photographed for LIFE magazine by Ralph Crane this home is an architectural collaboration at it's finest. In 1959 award winning builder/contractor Stanley Martson and young Ed Fickett created this stunning Mid-Century Modern glass house. Situated on a private, gated street of only 10 Martson built houses, this was the premier model of Martson's development. The one acre of hilltop property offers panoramic, unobstructed views of SF Valley one side and Burbank to the San Gabriel mountains on the other. A perfect setting for the dazzling light infused home. Aggregate stone floors, custom teak Cado built ins & partitioned walls combined with open beam, cathedral ceilings bring surprising intimacy and warmth. An open chefs kitchen with Viking appliances and Sub zero refrigerators is complete with immense island. The thoughtful renovation of kitchen and baths stays true to it's Mid Century roots. A sparkling pool and captivating city lights make this an exquisite home for entertaining.
