Los Feliz Edward Fickett the Jacobson Residence

Our experience with Edward Fickett mid century architecture usually has us pining away a casual day by the pool in Palm Springs. The Jacobson Residence in Los Feliz has plenty of the signature mid-century open floor plan vibes and walls of glass. But this custom residence was designed with warm woods, red brick and split levels.

Los Feliz Edward Fickett the Jacobson Residence

It’s nicely situated on the hillside to take advantage of the westerly views and gorgeous California sunsets. And indoor atrium set with a red brick backdrop is one of our favorite features.  And, As an added bonus. It’s only a few doors down from Neutra’s Lovell Health House.

From the abundantly lush landscaping to the warm wood accents, this restoration will make some new deep pocketed homeowner swoon with appreciation. Waking up to a view looking thru the floor to ceiling walls of glass of a stylish geometrically shaped pool doesn’t hurt either. Is that an Alexander Calder we spy in the backyard?
