When notable Los Angeles restauranteurs, the Engelman family, hired Homer Valentine to build their lifelong family home, they set out to design something atypical. For the Engelman residence, Valentine, rumored to have lived next door, exercised his classic U shaped floor plan often seen in other higher end Ladera Heights builds. However, to set the home apart the Engleman’s partnered with architect and designer Paul Bennet, incredibly sought after at the time. Under Bennet’s design direction and the Engleman’s incredible attention to detail, the one of a kind home features the highest quality materials available in 1964 such as oversized original terrazzo floors, custom walnut paneling and built ins and dual stacked brick and marble fireplaces, one of which is flanked by a vintage bar, all still in impeccable condition. This 3,610 square foot home sits on the most desired street and location in all of Ladera Heights, and is surrounded by several high end Mid Century homes designed by legendary architect Charles Wong. The Engleman family is well known for their achievements in the restaurant business, and ran the highly successful Beverly Hills restaurant, “Nibblers,” which itself was awarded for it’s Mid Century design. The family spent 57 warm and loving years at 6440 Halm. The home is now available for a rare first transfer of legacy.
