Upper Nichols Canyon mid-century tract

At the very top of Nichols Canyon, just south of Mulholland Drive, lies an interesting mid-century neighborhood where about half of the houses have remained unaltered and some have been sensibly upgraded.  Above, a good example of how a carport can make these houses seem bigger and dynamic. 

 This house had a very modern addition but they resisted altering the rest of the house.

 The most flamboyant and possibly the largest house in the tract. It's certainly my favorite.

While additions are often deadly to these mid-century ranch houses, I appreciate the fact they not only took pains to retain the folded roof on the first floor, they repeated the design on the upper floor.

 This house has a charming mobile sculpture.
