Set in a quiet cul-de-sac on a large, private lot with mountain views, 2050 La Fremontia Street, also known as the Siodmak House, was designed in 1967 by California midcentury architect James Allen Walter. One of only 32 homes in California designed by Walter, the 2,252-square-foot post-and-beam structure features a sleek, dark-wood facade highlighted by a pair of bright orange front doors.
The four-bedroom, two-bath, U-shaped home is actually composed of two rectangular volumes, connected by the front doors, which open into a serene interior courtyard garden. From there, the home gradually unfolds into an inward-facing, open-plan layout centered around an elongated courtyard. The design encourages indoor/outdoor living, while walls of glass, clerestory windows and skylights fill every corner with natural light.
The residence recently underwent a thoughtful renovation that updated the kitchen and the bathrooms as well as the plumbing and electrical systems, while still preserving the original structure and the home's overall midcentury spirit. Now, this classic stunner, which has been featured in Domus, Better Homes & Gardens and the Los Angeles Times, is on the market and looking for its third owner to the tune of $2,250,000.
