Architect Harwell Hamilton Harris designed the Modernist style house for Pauline Lowe in 1934. The house was Harris' first independent commission. Lowe was a buyer for the Bullock's Wilshire Department store and a friend of the architect. The house was prominently featured in magazines and became controversial the following year when Chicago-based architects Paul Schweikher and Theodore W. Lamb designed a very similar house that won the General Electric Small House Competition. Although Schweikher and Lamb were widely accused of plagiarism, Harris received a significant amount of positive publicity from the incident which greatly helped launch his career.

The Lowe House is located at 596 Punahou Street in Altadena, California. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.

Architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey originally designed the Mediterranean Revival style mansion for Chicago business machine manufacturer Arthur Herbert Woodward in 1907. The house was the first fireproof home in Altadena, built entirely of reinforced concrete as prescribed by Woodward's wife, Edith Norton Woodward. Edith Woodward was a survivor of the Iroquois Theater Fire of 1903.

The Zane Greys moved to Southern California in 1918. In 1920, spurred by the memory of a visit to Altadena during their honeymoon, they bought the Woodward home. After purchasing the property, Grey built an addition on the roof for a studio, library and museum. In 1928, an east wing was added to the house. After the Greys' death, their sons owned the property. The house was sold by their son, Romer, in 1970.

The Zane Grey Estate was listed in the National Register of Historic Places in 2002. Located at 396 East Mariposa Street in Altadena, California. Please do not use this image in any media without my permission. © All rights reserved.

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".
