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.
