This elegant residence is well outside the boundaries of Los Angeles, but its designers—Frank Mead and Richard Requa—helped shape the unique architecture of the Southern California region.

The two collaborated on several projects in Los Angeles, and Requa oversaw design of both the California Pacific International Exposition in San Diego as well as the city of Ojai.

This home sits on over an acre of land in Fallbrook. Built in the Spanish Colonial style, the 1914 residence has wide open interiors illuminated by glass doors and clerestory windows in the double-height living room. Features include tile floors, built-in shelving and storage, soaring beamed ceilings, and a total of six fireplaces.

Fronted by jacaranda trees, an arched entryway and a narrow courtyard make for a striking entrance to the home. In the back, it opens to a large courtyard surrounded by neatly landscaped vegetation. There’s even a well, completing the quaint aesthetic (though it doesn’t appear to be drawing water these days).

Asking price is $1.245 million.
