Description

Designed by residential architect Charles W. Wong and built in 1961, this post-and-beam mid century modern home incorporates classic modernist design elements of wood paneling, tongue-and groove ceilings clerestory windows and walls of glass. Charles Wong immigrated in the 1930s from China, settled in Los Angeles, graduated from Polytechnic High School in 1946 and graduated from USC's School of Architecture in 1951. and was one of a handful of Asian American Architects that contributed to the Modernists landscape of Los Angeles in the 60's. This unique home is characterized by its open, airy spaces, clean lines, and extensive use of glass to maximize the connection with the surrounding natural environment. The exterior of the home stands on tall posts, elevating it above the ground and allowing it to hover amongst the treetops. As you enter the home, you're greeted by a spacious and light-filled living area. The open floor plan is a hallmark of mid-century modern design, where the living, dining, and kitchen areas flow seamlessly into one another. The large windows, extending from floor to ceiling, immerse the interior in natural light and offer panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and mountains. Each of the four bedrooms in the main home offer a private sanctuary, inviting you to relax and unwind in comfort while enjoying unobstructed views of the lush greenery. A highlight of the home is the private guest house. It is elevated above the ground and hovers in the tree tops. As you enter the guest house, you're greeted by a spacious and light-filled living area that enjoys complete privacy and offers an oasis away from the main home as a design studio or office space. A three quarter bathroom completes this 705 sqft space. Overall, this home is an architectural gem that combines the timeless elegance of mid-century design with the serene embrace of nature.
