18128 Chardon Circle in Encino


I just listed a very exciting property in Encino! In the early 1960’s, one of the city’s original and most well-known contemporary modern furniture dealers discovered a home built by Donald Park, AIA. Today, nearly 50 years later, the residence of Mel Brown hits the market for the first time ever, creating an amazing opportunity for a fortunate buyer to continue the story of this special property.

Sited on nearly half an acre of flat land and mature gardens on a prime Lake Encino lot, this well loved 3,400 square foot classic mid-century modern home features 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, and family room, all with amazing indoor/outdoor views that open up to the spacious garden with oversized pool.

Mel Brown himself lovingly designed and built the landscape and created the outdoor spaces encircling the garden home.  After entering the house through a private courtyard, a large living room and dining room with double-high ceilings and wooden beams await.

A well designed period kitchen with eat-in area with convenient door into triple car garage. Many period details remain intact, all that is needed is your personal touch and vision.



A myriad of entertainment spaces, an abundance of storage, incredible privacy, and easy access to the Lake Encino Raquet Club make this a generational home that is not to be missed.
