Now available in Altadena is one of the twenty-eight homes in forward-thinking architect Gregory Ain’s Park Planned housing tract. Per its listing description, the postwar modern, located at 2751 Highview Avenue, has undergone a recent remodel “sensitive to the original design intent” and “improved with a more open floor plan.”

Measuring in at 1,344 square feet, the three-bedroom, two-bath home’s original elements include concrete floors, clerestory windows, skylights, a brick fireplace, and an interior courtyard.

New features include custom cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, porcelain tile and a built-in breakfast bar fabricated from a sycamore tree on site. The house has also been endowed with new heating and air conditioning units, a tankless water heater, and a new roof.

On a 7,450-square-foot lot with two-car garage, it’s asking $1.195 million. William Baker and Brian Linder of The Agency hold the listing.

The 1,344-square-foot home is one of 28 completed in the postwar tract.
