Property Description

An extraordinary mid-century modern masterpiece offered for the first time in 75 years, the Simison House is nested on a private cul-de-sac in prestigious La Cañada. The estate was a labor of love for famed Los Angeles architect and Frank Lloyd Wright devotee, Jack Simison, who built the residence in 1948 for his own family. It boasts four bedrooms and three bathrooms in 2,557 square feet that celebrates post-and-beam craftsmanship alongside California’s signature indoor-outdoor aesthetic.

As you enter, you feel an immediate sense of ease among the classic lines and organic materials. Natural light shines through the glass-walled living area, illuminating an elegant hand-built stone-stacked fireplace that invites you to relax with a good book and entertain guests. The flowing single-story floor plan continues to dazzle with floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook a lush courtyard and backyard. Every inch of this one-of-a-kind property has been meticulously maintained, including wood ceiling planks and beams hand placed by Simison himself to emphasize the beauty of their natural grain.

Enjoy a spacious eat-in kitchen with custom cabinetry. Retreat every night to the primary suite, a serene space featuring a sizable ensuite and cedar-lined closet. An office, laundry area, and detached two-car garage complete this heavenly and historic living space. Outside, verdant lawns, gardens, and mature trees frame the residence and provide ample space for entertaining and enjoying the Southern California sunshine.

Only a short distance from the beloved shops and restaurants along Foothill Boulevard, with convenient proximity to some of the city’s finest schools and easy access to Downtown L.A. via the 2 Freeway, the Simison House is an architectural treasure and a beautiful, once-in-a-generation offering.
