Why we have a crush on this property
Sellers often want you to see their home in its best light. Maybe they schedule an open house to show it off in the morning sun, or perhaps their place looks better in the warm hues of golden hour. This house for sale in California, though? It’s eye-catching in any light.
Illuminated by ground-level spotlights at dusk, the mid-century modern residence was built in 1954 by an architect named Jack Corey. He had a deep appreciation for Frank Lloyd Wright and was influenced by California modernism, resulting in homes that exhibited stark lines and wooden post-and-beam designs. This one, tucked on a cul-de-sac, has quite the commanding presence from the street.
The place was recently restored to its former glory, boasting long overhanging eaves that create stunning shadows. Huge panels of glass let the sunshine in, while wood-paneled walls with clerestory windows bring in more natural light. Wooden screen accents, a pocket shoji screen, and a brick fireplace, meanwhile, round out the main living area.
New additions to the home include Japanese tile in the kitchen and two bathrooms, as well as custom birch cabinets. Restored vintage fixtures can be found throughout the house, and in the three bedrooms, there are good-sized closets and easy access to the outdoors.
Outside, find a rear deck with views of the San Gabriel Mountains, not to mention a two-car garage. The home is listed for $1,788,000 by Joey Kiralla and Michelle St. Clair-Zsakany of Sotheby’s International Realty – Los Feliz Brokerage.
