Per the Listing: "The Thies Residence, an exemplary architectural home from Carl Maston, award winning graduate of the USC school of architecture. Modernist lines abound throughout this home evidenced by folded plate ceiling details to the endless rows of floor to ceiling glass windows. The indoor/outdoor flow feels seamless. Spend summer days taking a dip in the sparkling pool or collecting your thoughts by the koi pond. Polished cement flooring adds to the sleek luster of this light and bright home."

We've called Mr. Maston underrated before, and we're sticking by that sentiment. We want to have this house's babies. Don't judge! Kudos to the previous owners who did a masterful upkeep (per Redfin, it last sold in 1999 for $860k). Per USC's archives: "Upon graduation, Maston worked for the offices of Floyd Rible, A. Quincy Jones, Fred Emmons, Phil Daniel, and Allied Architects before opening his own office. His homes, shopping centers, military housing units, and university buildings can be found throughout Southern California. Known for his stark, no-frills modern buildings such as the Maston (or Marmont) Residence and Hillside House, his career spanned over 40 years in public and private sectors."
