Bel Air Modern

Perry’s Atomic Ranch, 1951



Originally constructed in 1951, a year when L.A. was occasionally witness to the flash of atomic bomb testing in Nevada, and with its board and batten siding, glass walls, open plan, and flat roof, this residence seems to perfectly fit the recently coined “Atomic Ranch” moniker. Yet rather than defining a specific building style, the term better connotes an easy-living casual lifestyle, which this residence offers in spades.

Sited well above Mulholland Drive in Bel Air, residence and grounds afford protected panoramic views of the San Fernando Valley out to the San Gabriel Mountains. An oversized wood-framed mobile glass panel opens to a spacious Southern California patio inviting indoor-outdoor living. And while located “on top of the world,” here one is not isolated from convenience services. They are amply provided just around the corner at the upscale Glen Centre.

Residence includes: 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, open-plan living room with wood-beamed ceiling and corner fireplace, dining area, breakfast nook, updated kitchen, and 2-car garage.
