Built in 1960, at the height of the Cold War, this well-preserved midcentury home is packed with authentic period charm—including its very own bomb shelter.

Here is a peek of the living area. There is an additional sitting area just around the corner.

Located in the quiet suburban neighborhood of Granada Hills in Los Angeles, this classic midcentury abode features five bedrooms, five baths, and 4,095 square feet of charming living space. 

Originally designed by Joe B. Jordan, AIA—an architect who was responsible for many notable structures around the area—the historic residence has been lovingly cared for throughout the years and possesses a perfectly preserved 60s sense of style. The groovy, open-plan living space boasts terrazzo floors, a dual-sided fireplace, soaring 17-foot ceilings, tongue-and-groove details, plus custom glass and doors throughout. Yet, perhaps the home’s most unique feature is its own bomb shelter, where through a code-locked door you can step back in time. 

The well-preserved midcentury home sits on a half-acre lot near the Knollwood Country Club in Granada Hills. The lot features a gorgeous outdoor space that includes a sprawling lawn, a covered patio, and a swimming pool and spa.
