:: First time on the market :: The Engelman Residence, 1964 :: Architect Paul Bennet, AIA :: Renowned builder Homer Valentine :: When notable Los Angeles restauranteurs, the Engleman family, hired Homer Valentine to build their lifelong family home, they set out to design something A-Typical. For the Engelman residence, Valentine, rumored to have lived nearby, exercised his classic U shaped floor plan often seen in other higher end Ladera Heights builds. However, to set the home apart the Engelmans partnered with architect & designer Paul Bennet, incredibly sought after at the time. Under Bennets design direction and the Engelmans 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 & marble fireplaces, one of which is flanked by a vintage bar, all still in impeccable condition. This 3610 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 Engelman family is well known for their achievements in the restaurant business, and ran the highly successful restaurant chain, Nibblers. Their Beverly Hills location was awarded for 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.
