The Goodman-Pomish Residence, 1948. First time on the market in nearly 70 years. Designed in 1948 as a "Modernique Home" by architect Gregory Ain in collaboration with Joseph Johnson & Alfred Day and landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, the Mar Vista Tract housing development was a socially-minded experiment for the working class and part of the larger post-WWII housing boom. The 52-home Tract was designated a Historical Preservation Overlay Zone in 2006. Ain's design philosophy prioritized function as a means to style so the flexible interior with sliding partition wall can be configured as a one, two or three bedroom residence with 1-bath and open living, dining and kitchen area. Large glass walls and clerestory windows provide plenty of interior light. There's a large backyard with flagstone deck, grass and fruit trees. Residence #4 includes a laundry closet and detached 2-car garage and gated parking pad. The Mar Vista Tract remains a magnet for architecture buffs, but more importantly, it retains its modern appeal.

The property is listed for $1,885,000 with Brittany Morrison and Barry Gray at Compass. For more details, please visit:
