New, 40 comments

If you can do Altadena, perhaps you'll be interested in this four-bedroom home designed by noted architect Caspar Johann Ehmcke, a home that was remodeled by noted Silver Lake-based architect Barbara Bestor back in 2004. Via the listing for the home, which is asking $1,749,500: "This one-of-a-kind residence exemplifies the best of Mid-Century Modernism: distinctive, dramatic, light & open, and takes full advantage of site & climate, providing the opportunity to enjoy an indoor/outdoor lifestyle year round. Every rm affords views of So. Cal. landscape w/ mountain backdrop or views of city lights & Catalina beyond. The 1st floor flows room to room by repetition of natural materials coupled w/ the elemental use of glass. 11 ft walls of glass highlight the dramatic LR w/ fpl. Remodeled kit. w/ stainless steel built-ins, fam rm, FDR, built-in breakfast area, media rm, laundry rm w/ sink, mud room, attached garage. 4 generous-sized bedrms upstairs incls. a master suite w/ 31 ft. balcony w/ view. Newer zoned FA/CAC, copper plumbing, dramatic garden lighting. 2nd time on the market in 60 years. Property is used frequently for filming."
