California estate for sale is ‘poetic arrangement’ of shapes

A unique-looking house with a harmonious vibe has recently gone up for sale in the Sherman Oaks, California, area.

And it’s a stunner — both on the inside and the outside.

“A poetic arrangement of geometric forms, abundant natural light, open space, and the subtle fusion of Eastern and Western architectural traditions best describe the design concept of famed architect Ted Tokio Tanaka, FAIA, for 3937 Sumac Drive,” the listing on Douglas Elliman says.

“Tanaka focuses on the natural space that surrounds this ~3,240sft home as he uses raw materials, colors, and shapes to fully immerse this home into the private ravine in which it sits. The use of glass and spatial volume throughout creates a seamless transition to the outdoor settings, allowing the home and its inhabitants to feel part of the majesty of the oak trees that long preceded this structure.”

The payoff result is this four-bedroom, three-bathroom residence that’s listed for $3.2 million and has spectacular views of the sparkling lights of the San Fernando Valley.

Features include:

  • Wooden decks

  • Swimming pool

  • Spa

  • Sunroom

  • Loft office

  • Primary private deck

The home also something one doesn’t see in the Southern California area too often — privacy.

“Finding a home with these ‘far from the city’ qualities is rare, while still having quick access to LA’s central areas, such as Beverly Hills, West Hollywood, and Century City,” the listing says.

The listing is held by Jonathan Butler and Marny Maslon.
