Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, Pasadena's Poppy Peak district contains an abundance of excellent modern architecture by well-known practitioners such as Richard Neutra; Buff, Straub & Hensman; and Harwell Hamilton Harris, as well as more obscure architects like Robert E. Bond, who designed this forward-thinking residence on Kaweah Drive in 1949. Measuring in at a compact 1,023 square feet, the board-and-batten-sided house features two bedrooms, one bath, hardwood floors, a wood-burning fireplace, clerestory windows, and the proverbial walls of glass. Last sold in 1994 for $228,000, it's now listed at $675,000.
