Scientists working in the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
However, "before science, the city was all about art," said real estate agent Henry pasencia . ".
He has a list to prove this. A Mid-
The century modern compound, which was listed for $1,088,000, was signed less than two weeks after it was listed.
About half of the properties --
Kerry is located in the upper foothills of Altana with an artistic background.
Sculptor David Oliver Green originally bought the land in his 40 s, and architect and professor Frederick monhoff of the University of California, Los Angeles, designed a piece --
Bedroom retreat in 1949.
The interesting fact is: the street on which it is located, Jaxine Drive, renamed Green's wife, Jaxine.
In 1964, Randall Markinson, a professor of architecture at the University of Southern California, designed a second residence to become a major residence.
The bedroom was transformed into an art studio.
Before his death, Green's wife died on 2000 at the age of 92.
The property was handed over to the caregiver and neighbors as there were no heirs.
According to Curbed, the property was sold to an East Coast couple last summer for $905,000 and they plan to update the two structures of the property and move west.
The new owner jumped in and turned the studio into a hotel.
The Loftlike space now has white walls, marble kitchen counters, stone floors and sliding wall panels to the private terrace.
The charismatic character received warm coverage in the July 2015 issue of Dwell magazine.
However, the owner finally decided not to move west and put the compound back on the market a year later.
"The owner will live in the room studio and redecorate the main house," said the broker . ".
Plascencia noted that they managed a number of updates, including new flooring and kitchen appliances, before they changed their plans.
They kept the original architectural elements.
The main house has carved ceilings, skylights and glass walls that lead to a complete
Length deck of Canyon View.
Plascencia pointed out that Altadena, about 20 minutes from downtown Los Angeles, finally got some love.
"This is a great place where you can get real Mid-
Modern architecture of the century.
"I think this is a big draw," he said . ".
This is an "incredible presence: the size of the building, the environment, and the lot. "
