Gad-Zooks! Another pretty righteous time capsule has hit the market. Per its listing, this 1955 modern in San Marino is "being offered for sale by the family of the original owner." The four-bedroom, three-and-one-quarter bath home was designed by Harold B. Zook, who began his architecture career in the mid-1940s working for Albert Frey and John Porter Clark in Palm Springs, and is evidently still practicing (!) today. Sited on a .48-acre lot two blocks east of the Huntington Library and Gardens, the property features walls of glass, interior and exterior terrazzo flooring, teak built-ins, vaulted ceilings, skylights, a double oven, a two-way stone fireplace, covered and open patios, a pool with cabana, and mountain views. Asking price is $2.798 million.
