Snazzy Mid-Century Modern in Baldwin Hills Estates Asking $1.4M

By Pauline O’Connor

On the market for the first time in a quarter-century is a razor-sharp midcentury modern in Baldwin Hills Estates. With its crisp, clean lines, open flow, and expansive walls of glass that slide open to the heated swimming pool, the low-slung ranch effectively conveys a feeling of postwar-optimism and conjures the leisurely pleasures of a Palm Springs getaway.

Custom-built in 1959 for Mr. and Mrs. David Whitebrook, a childless couple with a passion for entertaining, the three-bedroom home appears to have been well cared for over the years. While some elements, such as the kitchen, the flooring, and lighting have been updated, the home still has its charming vintage bathrooms and other period details, including the original intercom system, still in working order.

Located on a .39-acre lot with outstanding views, 4523 Don Rodolfo is listed with Benjamin Kahle of Deasy Penner Podley at an asking price of $1.375 million. Open houses are scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
