Ray Kappe-designed midcentury in Laurel Canyon asking $875K sells fast

The Margaret O. Smith Residence, a modestly sized midcentury modern with clean lines, presents a rare opportunity to own an architecturally significant home for under a million.

Designed by modernist architect Ray Kappe – one of the founding members of SCI-Arc – the home sits at 8322 Ridpath Drive in Laurel Canyon looking onto the street.

The two-story, two-bedroom dwelling is all about open-plan living. The main level consists of a living room with built-in shelves, a skylight, and a freestanding fireplace that looks onto the redone kitchen and a dining area surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass to take in views of the garden and mature trees. Priced under a million it’s no surprise this architectural gem is currently under contract.
