This week finds us in a modern home originally built for a co-founder of Jack in the Box, designed by Henry H. Hester and constructed in the 50’s. The unique use of glass, textures and space has come full circle in this property, which was genuinely ahead of its time.
Metal paneled roll up garage doors face the street, and a full height mirrored door protects access to the courtyard. A sleek and simple frontage.
The entry way steps down to the level of the home. Modern fixtures have been added, but the original structure does not feel 59 years old. A wall of glass lets in natural light.
Glass windows frame a concrete texture fireplace surround, with the feel of a petrified redwood.
An interpretation of a galley kitchen is executed flawlessly, with current commercial appliances blending into the original architecture. While not a massive space, one has dual ovens, a massive Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a wine cellar.
The master bath looks to be in the original configuration, and looks like it would drop right into any custom home built today.
Remember the glass walled bath in “Ray” situated in La Jolla? Not to many architects have the hutzpah to have a glass wall in a bathroom!
We love the bathroom spaces in the home.
Outdoor spaces surround the property, with courtyards with sitting areas to a covered patio with outdoor kitchen.
This Mission Hills home enjoys 3 beds, 3.5 baths in 4,417 sqft with a two car garage on a 17,800 sqft lot.
Offered at $2,295,000 by Pacific Sotheby’s International Realty.
