Perched on a knoll is this stunning Eichler-inspired mid-century modern California ranch in the Granada Hills Balboa Highlands with all the high-ceilings and great interiors you would expect combined with a lush private oasis of a celebrity-approved backyard with no sight-lines into it. You are greeted into this "L-Eichler" with a private front door and tropical oasis inside the entry courtyard. A custom garage door and lush greenery complete the curb appeal. Once inside this 4 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2500 square foot home you feel the warmth as this has been lovingly in one family's possession for the past 20 years, and now is your opportunity to enjoy all that it offers while also providing the chance to add your own vision and updates. The traditional mid-century kitchen overlooks the courtyard and has a pass through window to the formal dining and sitting room. The living room is the showpiece with its dramatic soaring ceilings, abundant natural light, large gas fireplace, and space for all to spread out. The primary bedroom suite opens to the back yard, as does the master bathroom, offering multiple egresses so you can easily hop in the sparkling pool or take in the sunset. Three other bedrooms and a jack & jill bathroom complete the interior space making this ideal for families, those with guests who visit, or those who want multiple purpose rooms. The backyard has multiple lighted gazebo structures and a built-in grill and bar to entertain or relax by the pool with all the privacy anyone would appreciate. The surprises continue as tucked in the corner is a shed that has been converted into a sound studio for music/gaming/voice-over work or more. A new roof as of 2021 combined with newer HVAC system are some other great upgrades. Owner has even built a covered parking structure on the side of the home for ones toys. The area features award winning schools, quick access to the North San Fernando Valley, Simi Valley, and Santa Clarita Valley, a 15 minute ride to Burbank and its airport, as well the Knollwood golf course right across Balboa.
