A Ray Kappe Home Revitalized After the Northridge Earthquake Lists for $2.4M

By Kathryn M. 

First built in the ’60s, this Ray Kappe home was reconstructed in 1996—and it just hit the market for the first time since.

The post-and-beam home in Sherman Oaks was originally built by celebrated architect Ray Kappe in 1961, only to be heavily damaged three decades later during the Northridge earthquake. The owners loved the original design so much that—rather than starting fresh—they asked Kappe to rebuild the residence.

Rebuilt in 1996, the two-bedroom, two-bath hilltop residence is ideal for entertaining, with spacious living areas and multiple outdoor patios. The post-and-beam construction is on full display throughout the glass-walled interior, which features hardwood and brick flooring.

The home has an open floor plan, and the master suite is located in a private, separate wing. Sliding glass doors connect the master bedroom to the poolside patio, while a glass ceiling illuminates the master bathroom with natural light.
