Noted architect Richard Leitch created the original homes located in the Devonwood Estates area of Altadena. Constructed by the builder of the tract for himself, this stylish 1956 Modern is a classic example of Mid-Century Contemporary design.
It features an updated kitchen, one and three-quarter baths, formal dining room, den and separate laundry area. There are three spacious bedrooms and an enclosed patio adjacent to the master suite. The open floor plan offers abundant natural light and numerous period details including wood beamed ceilings, dramatic mosaic-tiled fireplace, original panel doors and recessed lighting. Walls of glass in the living and dining rooms open out to the beautifully landscaped backyard with pool and cabana. The large lot of over twelve thousand square feet also includes a side yard with ample storage and work areas.
