Home Sixties Home


Since going on the MAK Tour back in October I have been craving another mid-century home tour. So with that in mind, I am very excited about the Brentwood Home Sixities Home tour sponsored by the LA Conservancy coming up on April 18th. One of the stops is the Franks House (above) – a redwood treehouse bachelor pad notorious with the neighbors for swinging parties. With a hillside view of the ocean it will be great to see in person.

Another featured home is the sprawling custom residence built in 1961 for Dr. and Mrs. Morris Frankel in Mandeville Canyon. Designed by Ephraim Baran, architect of the distinctive Directors Guild of America corporate headquarters in Hollywood, the house is a virtual time capsule of sixties architecture and interior design.

TicketsĀ are $40 for members ($60 for the general public), which includes shuttle transportation and an automatic reservation to the Sixties Residential Architecture Exploration With Jan Horn on Wednesday, April 14 atĀ 8 p.m. Tours will start every half-hour beginning at 10:00 a.m. The entire tour will take approximately 2 1/2 hours to complete.
