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.

“The REvive! Conference was a powerhouse event, and I am grateful to have had the opportunity to speak on the WomanUP! panel. The panel openly shared their stories of leadership, triumph, failure, and motivation,” said Crystal Narramore, Podley Properties President.
We are proud to have had our very own President, Crystal Narramore, contribute to the dialogue as a featured panelist at the 2018 Revive! Conference & Expo.

1930s Glendale House is a Slice of Suburbia for $769K
1406 Alameda Avenue, Glendale 91201
1406Alameda.com | Offered at: $769,000 | Open Sat & Sun 1-4pm
This two-bedroom house on 1406 Alameda Avenue is pretty much a little nugget of suburbia. Built in 1939, the two-bedroom is located in Glendale. Plus, it has a manageable lawn and a backyard pool—it might as well come with kids and a dog.
The interiors have been updated, most noticeably in the kitchen, where there are marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, and a butcher block-topped center island. The living room hosts a crop of windows. Flowing into those two spaces is a large dining room.
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.
Last sold in 2009 for $525,000, public records show, the house is now asking $769,000.
