Mid-Century architectural in the hills of Tarzana

The Allan Johnson Residence, 1961 – William E Mader, AIA. An industrial designer, Johnson commissioned the USC grad and later principal architect for the Irvine Company to design this stunning private residence in the hills of Tarzana.

Set back from the street on a flat top promontory with jetliner views of the Santa Susana Mountains and the San Gabriels in the distance, this beautiful Mid-Century Modern home is ready for only its second owner.

Exciting architectural elements include an A-frame roof exposing volume, light, and energy in the sensational living room; a whimsical center atrium with small pond and walls of glass capturing natural light and the commanding views throughout.

Three spacious sleeping rooms include a private master suite with generous view, a second mini master suite, and front bedroom with its own private entrance.

Adjacent to the kitchen the study shares a wall of glass with the atrium. Lightly updated, beautifully cared for, quiet, and private.

While no connection to Joseph Eichler has been found, parallel architectural features and similar geometric lines are recognizable in this one of a kind home.
