Dan Saxon Palmer, Architect

The Maslon/Engelman Residence, 1952

111 North Glenroy Avenue, Bel Air, CA, 90049

One family, two architectural icons; only one remains! Aficionados of architecture still decry the wanton destruction in 2002 of Richard Neutra’s Rancho Mirage masterpiece commissioned by Samuel Maslon. Earlier Albert Maslon, Samuel Maslon’s brother, sparked the family’s interest in architecture when he commissioned Dan Palmer, who had studied under Edward Durell Stone, to build a residence in Bel Air following the principals of organic architecture laid out by Frank Lloyd Wright. In ­­­the late 1950’s the property was acquired by Howard and Betty Engelman. Betty was Albert’s daughter. As the Engelman family grew, so did the house, all under the careful supervision of Dan Palmer. Today, this original and classic mid-century residence is set serenely within over one half an acre of mature and private Asian-inspired gardens, and is now available for the first time. Sited on a corner lot just a block above Sunset Boulevard, the single story structure, constructed primarily of stone, wood, and glass, is carefully planned to afford both visual and auditory privacy from the street, with the public spaces flowing naturally through glass windowed walls to the rear gardens and full sized swimming pool. Residence incorporates an open plan living-dining area, family room, master suite with generous office and bath, 3 additional bedrooms, two additional baths, patios, pool, spa, protected pet enclosure, and detached two car garage.
