Architect Gregory Ain designed the Modernist style house in 1948 as part of the Park Planned Homes, an extraordinary neighborhood of twenty-eight homes incorporating the "collective spirit and aesthetic sensibilities that define the architect's pioneering work". The 3-bedroom, 2-bath home in 1344 sq. ft. is currently (June 2019) on the market listed for sale for $1,195,000 and described in the listing as "Located high in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, the Gregory Ain-designed homes feature Interior courtyards sheltering homes from the street and providing a sense of privacy within the larger community. Glass walls face private gardens, clerestory windows and skylights provide natural light and cross-ventilation, and the hearth is the heart of the home. Tastefully remodeled, sensitive to the original design, a more open floor plan connects the new kitchen directly to living and dining areas, with custom cabinets, quartz counter tops, high-end stainless appliances, and a built-in breakfast bar crafted from a sycamore on site".
