Who doesn’t love an A-frame?
Developed by Joseph Eichler and designed by architect A. Quincy Jones, this Thousand Oaks residence offers the timeless good looks of a midcentury modern with upgrades that provide more contemporary convenience.
Built in 1964, the five-bedroom house has an A-frame shape that rises from the entry to the wall of glass that marks the end of the family room, creating high ceilings and increasing the natural light inside. The post and beam house also retains an atrium, globe lights, and mahogany paneling, all original to the home.
More contemporary features include double-paned windows throughout, an updated kitchen, central air conditioning, radiant heating, and three bathrooms, thanks to a conversion of an original addition intended for use as an art studio.
The five-bedroom house last sold in 2008 for $820,000, public records show. It’s now listed for $1.119 million.
