Built in 1965, this elegant Palos Verdes Estates residence was designed by architects Young and Remington, who designed a number of modern-style homes and commercial buildings across the South Bay in the 1950s and ’60s.

In keeping with other homes of the era, this one features an open floor plan that provides minimal separation between the living room, dining room, and kitchen. Walls of glass throughout the house keep it filled with natural light and offer views around the neighborhood.

The 2,696-square-foot home has four bedrooms and three bathrooms, along with a downstairs family room and laundry room. It’s had only two owners since its construction and last sold in 2011 for $1.15 million.

Since then, the residence has been remodeled, but its midcentury charm remains intact. Interior features include vaulted and beamed ceilings, built-in shelving, clerestory windows, modern-style light fixtures, an updated kitchen with walnut cabinetry and stainless steel appliances, and a pair of white brick fireplaces.

The house sits on a 15,224-square-foot lot, with a sloping front lawn planted with drought-tolerant landscaping and plenty of patio space in the back. A long upper level balcony overlooks a cluster of terraced gardens behind the home.

Asking price is $1.825 million.
