While it may seem like this expansive Encino home, located at 3739 Montuso Place, is far away from the hustle of the city, it is really just its private and lush green setting in the foreground of the mountains that can give you that secluded and peaceful feel.

Situated at the end of a popular cul-de-sac, along a private drive, you will find this 5 bedroom, 4 full-bath (and one half bath) home that can aptly be described as an architect’s dream. Originally built in the mid-1960s, this abode has undergone some fantastic renovations, which include:

  • A combination of white and tasteful wood-paneled walls
  • Open space throughout – with several skylights to enhance the brightness
  • Two fireplaces, to help warm up those chilly nights


Plus, for those who thrive on entertaining, this home not only features a massive kitchen, complete with row upon row of cabinets, shelving, and drawers; stainless steel appliances; and oversized refridgerator; but also a professional bar that sports beer and nitro coffee taps.

In addition to its well done interior space, the lot – which is just over half an acre – sports a large wooden deck, an outdoor fireplace, and a raised pool. Plus, the outdoor kitchen, which is complete with a stainless steel sink, barbecue, Green Egg smoker, and plenty of counter space, further enhances this home’s ability to satisfy the most discriminating cook and / or entertainer.

Asking price for this home is just over $3 million. Private tours can be arranged, and additional information is available, for interested buyers.
