Cliff May, the father of the modern ranch-style home, designed this particular one (located, oddly enough, on Brentwood's Old Ranch Road) for his own residence in 1953. Nearly sixty years later, the two-bedroom, two-bath home has been, in the words of the listing, "sharpened and refined by Marmol Radziner," and can be yours to own or lease. The nearly 2,000-square-foot property features vaulted ceilings, motorized black-out window coverings, walnut cabinetry, a fireplace, central heat and air, and a twenty-three-foot skylight. It's listed at $3.495 million.
