Striking 1960s post and beam seeks $1.4M in La Cañada Flintridge

The glassy modern house was designed by architects Buff and Hensman

.

5521 Alta Canyada Road // Built in 1965, this glassy modern home in La Cañada Flintridge is looking for its second owner since 1971.

The 2,423-square-foot house was designed by prolific Southern California architects Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, and many of its original details appear to have been kept nicely intact.

Resembling an L-shaped glass box, the post and beam-style residence is surrounded by trees. It also opens to several spacious decks and patios.

Inside are three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with wood-paneled walls, Saltillo tile floors, built-in shelving, and vintage teak cabinetry. Tall ceilings and clerestory windows accentuate the home’s light and airy feel, which is especially present in the living room, where the ceiling expands to double height around the elegant fireplace.

The house sits on a half-acre lot with neatly landscaped vegetation and a large swimming pool and spa.

Asking price is $1.35 million.

Part of a tract of World War II-era homes built as worker housing

 

Modernism Week events are ongoing in Palm Springs and plenty of pedigreed homes are up for grabs in the desert city. Case in point: this cozy post and beam by influential modern architect Albert Frey.

The simple residence was constructed in 1946 as part of a tract of homes commissioned as worker housing and designed by Frey at the tail end of World War II. The houses all feature identical floor plans, but different positions on each lot and unique paint jobs so as not to appear too uniform.

This house has plenty of modern style, with wide windows, tiled bathrooms, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. The 1,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an airy kitchen with a vintage stove and refrigerator.

The house sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot, with a large driveway, attached garage, grassy backyard, and  spa/swimming pool. There’s even an outdoor shower—partially enclosed for privacy.

Asking price is $749,000. Worth noting: The home’s historic credentials qualify its owner for some tax breaks under California’s Mills Act.

1930s Storybook with Tudor touches in Shadow Hills seeks $700K

9941 McBroom Street | Shadow Hills 91040

Tucked away in the San Fernando Valley’s Shadow Hills neighborhood, this Storybook-style house with Tudor touches sits on a lot measuring over a half acre.

The house was built with two bedrooms and bathrooms, but was later expanded to its current five-bedroom, three-bathroom layout.

Though some parts of the house are probably in need of some aesthetic updates, there are some timeless features here too. The sunken living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, period windows, a fireplace, and, under the stained glass window, a bay window seat.

The house holds a dining room, family room and kitchen, which still contains some retro-looking but “well-maintained knotty pine cabinetry,” like in a cabin in the woods.

Next to the house, there’s large flat area, “once the corral for horses,” a nod to the property’s equestrian past. Farther into the property, there’s also a paved patio and a kidney-shaped pool.

The property is listed for $699,900.

The lone bathroom features retro pink and red tile, and a separate shower and bathtub. In the rear yard, there’s a large pool, a covered patio, and a mural painted on the detached garage.
