Initially built as his personal residence in 1955 by the late industrial designer Kohei Eguchi (whose impressive resume includes doing design work for General Motors, Ford, and Honda), this one-of-a-kind property features eight bedrooms (five of which are suites), and nine baths throughout its 8,275 square feet.

As you enter into the two-story living room, you immediately notice the expansive space, highlighted by loads of natural light. The defined lines both inside and out provide an aura of both room and appeal in this sturdy concrete block residence.

Outdoors you will find a three-car garage and a detached workshop, along with a separate – and quite roomy – guest quarters (where three of the bedroom suites are located). There are also several outdoor patios that lend themselves to taking in the surrounding beauty – which includes a soothing stream. For added privacy, the property is gated at the foot of the drive.

Located at 3990 Chevy Chase Drive, in La Canada Flintridge, this true work of art – which is situated on more than an acre of land with mature oaks – is currently listed for sale at $6.788 million. Private showings can be set up for interested buyers.
