Cool, calm and sophisticated: The Berkson Residence

Cool, calm and sophisticated, the Berkson Residence at 4620 Rubio Drive in Encino was designed in 1939 by J.R. Davidson, a key figure in the Los Angeles modern architecture movement who later designed three Case Study homes. It has been listed by Alan Taylor, Director of Aaroe Estates, at $3,999,000.

Early photographs of the home by architectural photographer Julius Shulman have been shown at the Getty Center are now part of the museum’s collection. Sweeping across almost 6,000 square feet of living spaces on nearly two thirds of an acre, this single-story, five-bedroom, six-bath home has been thoughtfully updated for today's living using modern elements that blend perfectly with the original vision. The home reflects the signature warmth and fluidity of Davidson’s work. Seamless indoor/outdoor living spaces flow from open interiors to multiple outdoor entertaining areas and lush private grounds. The home is located south of the boulevard, within walking distance of major shopping, restaurants and entertainment.
