Located at 3458 Adina Drive in the Cahuenga Pass, this post-and-beam was designed by architect Richard E. Nevara, whose CV included a stint overseeing the architectural design department of America’s largest construction and civil engineering corporation, Bechtel.

Nevara built the three-bedroom, two-bath modern for his personal family residence in 1958, when he was not quite 30 years old, and it has been owned by the Nevara family ever since.

Sited above the street at the end of a cul-de-sac, the 1,707-square-foot home is a symphony of wood, with a cedar-clad exterior, redwood beamed ceilings, and teak wall paneling and cabinetry. It also features ample walls of glass and concrete and stone tile floors.

On a 9,754-square-foot lot with mature trees and a koi pond, the property is listed in a trust sale with Darla Haun-Pacheco of Pelegrino Properties at an asking price of $1.382 million. An open house is scheduled from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday.
