This month, Great Spaces takes us from the countryside of Pennsylvania to the lush foliage of California's San Fernando Valley.

Classic Contemporary in Pennsylvania


Built in 1972, this contemporary Pennsylvania home, located at 360 East Hillendale Road in Kennett Township, was designed and built by the current—and only—owner. The five-bedroom, six-bathroom estate spans a sweeping 6,370 square feet on 2.1 acres in its own private enclave with wooded access and natural privacy. 

With striking lines and dynamic angles, the space showcases walls of glass in its living and dining spaces, overlooking meticulously curated landscaping and gardens. Vaulted ceilings and skylights maximize natural light throughout the interior. Out back, you'll find ample patio areas, a pool, a separate guest house and a three-car garage connected to the main home by an exterior breezeway.

Tom Petty's Pretty Encino Spot


While it's tough to find country life in Los Angeles, this Encino mansion, formerly owned by musician Tom Petty, is tucked into nearly an acre of lush foliage in the San Fernando Valley. After selling in 2018 to Grammy Award-winning producer Randy Spendlove, the estate is back on the market. Located at 4626 Encino Avenue, the massive 11,500-square-foot home stretches over two stories, with six bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

Inside, driftwood beams line the soaring ceilings, and windows open onto sweeping canyon views. On the grounds, visitors will find an outdoor kitchen, pool, spa, rock waterfall, creek, cabana and pool house that once served as Petty's original recording studio. Multiple decks and patio spaces offer every excuse for entertaining.
