Edward H. Fickett, F.A.I.A., 1956 | 3736 Hayvenhurst Ave, Encino, CA. | Mid-Century Modern



Post has attachment
Take in this private mid-century modern post and beam home located in the hills of Encino, CA, showcasing the masterful work of Edward H. Fickett, F.A.I.A.  Now on market ( MLS# 16-160888 ) asking $2,199,000, while looking for it's third steward to care for this "Mid-Century at a Classic Level."

Set above the street and up the curvy drive, you come upon a somewhat modest facade, but tasteful, all the same.  The true surprise and joy comes when you walk through the front door and into this world of strategically placed fenestration offering seamless fluidity of environment that permits an infusion of natural light.  Architectural details and design further you through the home and out into nature.

The Grossman House was designed 1963-1964 for Albert and Simonne Grossman. The architect dubbed The Grossman House, "El Paradiso," for its space-age vision of the good life, Southern California style.  In 1964, the Los Angeles Times remarked with a bit of tongue-in-cheek, "At last, a house for people who hate to paint."  Renowned L.A. architect Raphael S. Soriano, F.A.I.A. broke new ground with his decision to use aluminum and glass instead of the commonly used building materials, such as wood, plaster and stucco.  The two gentlemen set off to create a one-of-a-kind design that certainly will never be duplicated.  The Grossman House is a treasure; to design, to architecture and to our city.

In 1956, it was announced that two Realtor / Developers, Terry Ray and Ernie Dunlevie, would take on a 2,650-acre development project known as the Bermuda Dunes Country Club, which would feature a world-class 18-hole course and residential homes, known as the Fairway Homes, just 10 miles east of Palm Springs.  The new community was described as one of the largest Palm Springs resorts area development projects at this time for this area.  In 1958, Terry Ray sells his stake in the project and the mid-west oilman, Ray Ryan, steps in as Dunlevie's business partner.  At this time, Ryan had completed revamping El Mirador Hotel in Palm Springs.  Through the next several years, Ryan and Dunlevie create a go-to destination that brought avid golf fans and a handful of Hollywood stars to the resort-like Bermuda Dunes Country Club.

20 minutes east of Palm Springs, CA, rests one of the original 16 “Fairway Homes” of the Bermuda Dunes Country Club development built in 1960 by Ray Ryan and his development partner, Ernie Dunlevie.  The Bermuda Dunes mid-century modern once again finds life as an elegant and updated ultra-private open-plan design resting above the fairway.  Residing above the 6th tee of the gated community lies a bit of rich Coachella Valley history involving Hollywood stars, mafia kingpins, gambling and real estate development of the era.
