HISTORIC MAGNOLIA HOUSE IN SHERMAN OAKS

2010   THE YEAR OF VALLEY ADVENTURES

One of the most beautiful treasures of the San Fernando Valley is the historic Magnolia House in Sherman Oaks. Designated Los Angeles Cultural Monument number 293, the grand old house was built during the "roaring 20s" and reflects the passion for Spanish Colonial Revival architecture of the time.  Thanks to the vision of Valley realtor Jerry Berns, the Magnolia House was rescued and restored to some of its original beauty during the 1970s.  

Drawing of the Magnolia House - Gift to The Museum of the San Fernando Valley from Jerry Berns 2010.  (click on image to enlarge).  A detailed history of the Magnolia House, with photographs of its restoration was donated this month to The Museum's archives by Jerry Berns.

Please respect that the home, while a cultural monument, is a private residence and viewable only from the street.  13242 Magnolia Boulevard, Sherman Oaks.
