Two New Ed Fickett Nichols Canyon Homes are on the Market


For many years, my dog and I would walk by a mid-century house in Silver Lake, which I always admired. One Sunday morning, the owner was outside gardening, so I decided to tell him how much I liked his home. To my surprise, he asked me if I would like to take a tour of the inside. As any person with a love of great architecture, I picked up my dog and grabbed my chance. Once inside, I couldn’t believe how spectacular and meticulously renovated it was. This was my first introduction to Edward H. Fickett homes.

Even though he was not as well known as his contemporaries, he built over 60,000 with 10,000 in the San Fernando Valley.  Not only was he known for building homes for the rich and famous (his list of clients included Jack Benny, Charlie Chaplin, Dick Clark, Joan Crawford, Irene Dunne, Jimmy Durante, and Groucho Marks), he designed modern homes that were affordable and accessible to the general public.

Currently, there are two new listings in the Nichols Canyon area in the Hollywood Hills. Please take a look.

3122 Nichols Canyon Road, Los Angeles, 90046

4 bedroom/3baths/2510 sq. ft.      –      offered at $1,895,000

Today I had the pleasure of seeing this 1959 Edward Ficket home, which is on a quite cul-de -sac on the top of Nichols Canyon. It has been tastefully and completely remodeled yet keeps the original Fickett design simplicity.

The open living space revolves around a dramatic atrium and pond which brings which incredible light throughout.

There are white limestone floors, a double-sided stone fireplace and floor to ceiling glass doors which opens the back of the house to the pool, hot tub and deck.

Open up the glass door sliders to the atrium and hear the peaceful sound of flowing water.

The master bedroom opens to the pool, has a master bath with a soaking tub and the concrete block wall featured in many Fickett homes.

The home has 2 more bedrooms and a fourth room which is currently used as a home office with 2 built in desks.
