From the Agent: "Welcome to The Plummer House, a custom-built 1957 midcentury block-and-beam that has been widely featured in various magazines. Located at the end of the cul-de-sac, this architectural gem is truly one of a kind, and it has been lovingly restored and reimagined by the visionary eye of Los Angeles interior designer, Piney Interiors. The home is an entertainer’s dream, featuring owner upgrades throughout including handlaid herringbone parquet floors, massive wood beams, indoor and outdoor grills, fully owned solar panels, custom gates, and floor-to-ceiling sliding walls of glass."

The home’s front and backyard have been extensively landscaped with native California plants. Concrete walls border the property, providing ample privacy.
