By Pauline O’Conner

Here’s proof that some people actually can have nice things. According to its listing description, this razor-sharp modern in Granada Hills’ Balboa Highlands Eichler tract has belonged to the same owners—”Frances and Larry”—since being built in 1964. The aforementioned couple appear to have taken excellent care of the 2,078-square-foot residence, as even its original built-in blender is still functioning after all these years.

Other features of the five-bedroom, two-bath home include an entry atrium, sliding glass walls, beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, built-in shelving and storage, and a cinderblock fireplace. Occupying a one-quarter-acre lot, it’s asking $789,900.

View Ava Gardner’s Midcentury-Modern Home

By Leslie Anne Wiggins

A classic California midcentury-modern home that belonged to Golden Age actress Ava Gardner is on the market. Located in the exclusive Hollywood Dell neighborhood, where one may be lulled to sleep by the faint sounds of summer concerts at the Hollywood Bowl, the 1959 residence was designed by famed Los Angeles architect Edward Fickett. The home features a gold seal recognizing it as an “all-electric” house, which may appeal to the eco-friendly buyer. Set on a double lot, the property includes plenty of outdoor space for relaxing and entertaining. Gardner’s second husband, Frank Sinatra, reportedly attended swanky soirées at the house, although he and Gardner were by then divorced. Floor-to-ceiling windows in the living and dining areas provide broad views across the hills, and the ground-floor master bedroom, complete with a fireplace, has sliding glass doors that lead out to the tree-shaded terrace. Listed for $2 million, the 2,668-square-foot home has 3 bedrooms and 3 baths. Contact: Kate Blackwood, 310-275-1000;deasypenner.com
