Description

This house was built in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles for a young family with many children, live-in maids, and a need to entertain large groups. The International Style house that Abell designed also worked well for the Siskin's need for indoor/outdoor living, a pool, multiple storage and workshop areas, and separate wings of the house for children and parents.
