The Gattman Residence by Cliff Burlew is currently on the market and is a site to behold. The house was built in 1959 located in Encino California. There is a nice juxtaposition to the appearance of the front and the back of the house. The front, a subtle almost minimal in appearance does not give away what is to be found on the inside while the back of the house is an open book hosting a whole wall of glass. I guess maybe that is how it should be. You don’t get to see everything from the street. Everything about this house sits well in “my mind” when I think about the ideal mid century house. I appreciate the current owners taste and attention to historical preservation.
