Perched among the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, this 1940s house by architect and Richard Neutra apprentice Harwell Hamilton Harris features an array of large windows, patios, and walkways from which to enjoy its excellent views.
The main house—a three-level, post and beam built in 1949—features skylights, two living rooms, a dining room, brick fireplaces, three bedrooms, and four bathrooms.
The Sierra Madre property also holds a studio designed by John T. Lyle in 1986. The studio holds an office, a bedroom, and bathroom, as well as a crop of “apparently random custom windows of all shapes and sizes,” as the listing describes it.
Between the two structures, there’s a rambling garden with citrus trees and a pond, also designed by Lyle, a master landscape architect who now has a school named in his honor at Cal Poly Pomona.
Additional features of the home include:
- 3 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms

- Lot Size: 16,604 sq. ft.

310NSunnyside.com | Offered at: $1,499,000
This sweet Craftsman in Sierra Madre is just lovely. The house, built in 1921, is clad in redwood exterior siding and has an oversized front door. And, inside, there is a lot more glorious wood: white oak floors, wainscoting of mahogany, fir and redwood. French doors and casement windows abound.
The house’s three bedrooms are spacious and bright, and the bathrooms all feature vintage-looking tilework.
Saltillo tiles cover the floor of the dining room, which over looks the spacious rear yard. The house sits on a nearly 11,000-square-foot lot that includes a spa and views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby.
The house in the foothills last sold in 1979 for $97,500. It’s now listed for $1.499 million.
