About This Old House

Nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac overlooking the first hole of the Knollwood Country Club golf course, the Sakaguchi residence is an iconic mid-century modern estate designed by renowned Japanese-American architect Kazumi Adachi. Adachi was influential in Los Angeles architecture collaborating on the Japanese American Community and Cultural Center and the Fort Moore Pioneer Memorial, both downtown.

Built in 1969 to the highest standards for a prominent Los Angeles doctor and his wife, the home was meticulously restored in 2014 with an emphasis on maintaining the original vision. High vaulted ceilings, floor to ceiling sliding glass doors, terrazzo floors, imported Japanese wall paper, green onyx, marble and Corian countertops, beautiful wood paneling and built-in cabinetry propagate the home creating a unique combination of mid-century modern architecture with Chinese Feng Shui theory to derive positive energy from the home. Modern updates compliment the home with a Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer, Gaggenau electric grill/griddle, Kitchen Aid stainless steel appliances and a whole house water filtration system. The master bedroom has two closets w/Elfa organizational systems including a 136 square foot walk-in. The master bath incorporates the original Japanese soak tub updated w/Heath ceramic tiles & modern fixtures including a rain shower & body jets.

Very unique to the area, property also has a custom detached guesthouse w/vintage blinds, kitchenette, 2 baths, terrazzo floors, floor to ceiling glass sliders & copper hand-hammered fire place.
Entertainers yard w/fenced pool, grass area, fruit trees, several outdoor living spaces and an oversized enclosed patio. Large, double lot spanning ½ acre, oversized two car garage with built in cabinets throughout. Additionally, oversized driveway accommodates 4+ cars.

Energy efficiency is driven by a massive solar system (owned) includes 2 invertors and 56 Tier 1 rated solar panels (Bloomberg Q2’15) producing over 25 MWh annually in 2016 and 2017 and two tankless water heaters (main house with built in recirculating pump and guest home),

Other features include exterior video system, pre wired exterior speaker system, wireless alarm system & variable speed pool pump and more…….
