489 OAK CREEK DR, THOUSAND OAKS | $4,495,000 | 4 Bedrooms | 4 Bathrooms
If any architectural buffs have been to this sleepy little neighborhood in Thousand Oaks it was to see Case Study House #28 by Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman. But only two houses away sits another architectural house we discovered; a 1975 brick home by Clemens Kaasmann.
This was a name we had not run into before. However, the current owner has dug into a little history of the architect. In speaking with Clemens’ daughter, it was relayed that Clemens worked with none other than John Lautner. And, the daughter even visited him on site while building the Bob Hope residence in Palm Springs.
While the home has been extensively remodeled, the original brutalist brick structure is a striking example of 70’s architecture. The house is situated beautifully to take advantage of the surrounding landscape. The setting of the pool is quite spectacular. Perfectly perched among minimalist hardscape and stunning landscaping, it overlooks a gorgeous vista of mountains.
One could spend hours walking the grounds of the 50,000+ square foot lot. The interior has more of a modern feel with $1M plus in renovations over the past few years. The living room boasts brick posts, a groovy wooden room divider and an expansive geometric skylight.
The open floor plan kitchen has been remodeled with high end appliances and is perfect for cooking that holiday meal. The bedrooms are amply sized and each one allows in an abundance of light. This trophy mid-century property has rarely been available since it was built but can now be yours.
