It’s got a name, it’s got a view and it’s got a famed architect who echoed the work of Frank Lloyd Wright in his design. And it’s on the market.
The Endicott home, named for the first family that lived there, was designed in 1966 by noted local architect Jack Simison. It came on the market in the spring and potential buyers have been touring it during recent open houses.
The home is perched high on a ridge at the top of Domal Lane in La Cañada with views to the San Gabriel Mountains and Arroyo Seco corridor, southward to the Los Angeles basin and to the Pacific Ocean. The main room in the home spans in length from the front door to the back patio and features a spectacular fireplace built with Bouquet Canyon stone.
“Jack loved building on slabs and using overhangs in his building. He also liked to include the outside [natural features] along with the inside of the house,” said Sylvia Simison, the architect’s widow.
