Modern Ranch-Style, 1967
Robert Gordon, A.I.A.
This 1967 Modern Ranch Style residence was originally designed by local A.I.A. chapter President Robert Gordon, and has been creatively warmed by the current owners incorporating a high quality Nouveau Craftsman aesthetic. Open floor plan interiors with vaulted ceilings flow to the gardens, affording a true sense of indoor-outdoor living. The pool and integral fountains are sited just outside the living room, and there is a nearby view deck for poolside seating. Privately sited on over an acre, the unique micro-climate of the promontory site allows for a multiplicity of garden options, with the present mature landscaping tastefully themed. The rear south & west-facing slopes are dedicated to California natives, and an orchard with exotic fruit trees providing fruit nearly year-round. The herb garden & grape arbor are just steps from the kitchen. Walled & gated, this site affords long views south across the Los Angeles basin to the ocean, and north to the San Gabriel Mountains.
