Silver-piped pop diva Jhené Aiko is the soon-to-be-former owner of this thought-provoking four-bedroom in popular Los Angeles hinterland Encino. The 3,362 sq. ft. single-level house listed on the open market this month with an asking price of $3.65 million.
A 1966 modern with a winged design driven home by roof extensions, the house’s recent overhaul is identified immediately by the fresh timber cladding around the garage. The home’s interior details include a shared living area with wide-plank hardwood with a ceiling design that frequently breaks into liberation and features angular preoccupations.
Another update in this house: its walls of black-framed glass, which are inset with large sliding or folding doors. The master, the creative workspace, the living room, the dining room and at least one of the guest rooms have the indoor/outdoor option built in.
The master opens to a private terrace, offering access to the pool area and the tiered deck space that climbs the hill in the back of the property.
There is, curiously, a guitar in one of the bathrooms. You never know when inspiration might strike, seems to be the suggestion.
Aiko has released three studio albums; all have landed in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 chart.
