This remarkable property, located on over one half-acre high in the Altadena foothills, offers two distinctive structures by noted California Modernists. The main house, designed by Randell Makinson, was built in 1964 with two bedrooms and one and three-quarter baths in an innovative, spreading plan that opens to the views of the valley below and Los Angeles beyond. Architectural highlights include sculpted ceilings and clerestory windows, tall brick fireplace, and walls of glass that open onto a deck running the length of the home, connecting the interior spaces with the gardens. The guest unit, by Frederick Monhoff, AIA, was built in 1949. It features a soaring gallery space with a loft, one bedroom, kitchen and three-quarter bath. This became the studio and workshop of the original owner, sculptor David Green, who lived here for many years with his wife, Jaxine.
Here is a rare and enchanting opportunity for true California Living in an exceptional setting.
