First time on the market for this stunning 1960s Webster Wiley-designed midcentury modern property in La Crescenta, California, USA.
It’s not the relic of the past you might imagine though. Yes, the post and beam structure looks both original and well-maintained, but the inside looks quite contemporary in a retro style (if that makes sense). By that, I mean it looks like someone has attempted to maintain or recreate the original period, as opposed to it looking like 1967 unchanged, which wouldn’t be as stylised.
Selling points are numerous, but the views are certainly high up the list, looking down from high onto downtown LA. We can only imagine what it would be like watching the sun set over the city from the substantial terrace, decking or pool.
Exposed wood beam ceilings, hardwood floors, and ‘custom original’ details including trellis eaves, tile fireplace, Shoji screen bathroom cabinetry, family room cabinetry and sunken master bath shower are all present, as are three bedrooms, two bathrooms and open reception rooms within the 1.858 sq. ft. of space. The overall site covers around half an acre.
The images do this place justice more than any words though. If they sell the house to you, the price is $875,000.
