The John W. Castello Residence
This Modernist home – the John W. Castello residence, architect Lyman Ennis AIA, 1964 – in upper Nichols Canyon sits on an elevated prominent with spectacular views. Enter the foyer and you are greeted by a rare staircase, brutalist in thought, which serves as the centerpiece for the floor plan. A step-down conversation living room with an impressive fireplace is flanked by views of Los Angeles. You are surrounded by windows and sliding glass doors. The formal dining room with a character bar adjoins the open kitchen with an impressive wood deck for outdoor dining. There’s a private guest suite downstairs as well as a warm office leading to the backyard.
