Sherman Oaks mid-century home designed by Ray Kappe seeks $2.4 million

By Sandra Barrera

A mid-century modern Sherman Oaks home designed by renowned architect Ray Kappe has listed for $2.395 million.

Kappe, who died last year in November at 92, created homes that flow seamlessly outdoors and are enveloped by nature.

The Meyer Residence, named after original owners Stanley and Marjorie Meyer, exemplifies this — so much so, that after being destroyed in the 1994 Northridge earthquake, the current owner asked Kappe to recreate his 1961 original with few updates.

Perched on a third-acre hilltop, the home’s 2,987-square-foot interior with exposed beams, warm wood, brick, and abundant glass contains two bedrooms and bathrooms, an open floor plan and a central freestanding wet bar. The bar was the location of the original kitchen.
