This Mid-Century Architectural Gem, designed by John F. Galbraith presents a sense of solid strength with long horizontal roof lines, deep fascia and planters forming an impressive pergola entry into an interior of well-preserved custom vintage features throughout this home.

Galbraith’s use of rough-sawn redwood paneling, 9’ walls of glass and deft open plan, with meticulous attention to finishes and smart ergonomic strategies turn the house into a chameleon, one moment informal with wet dogs and bathing suits at poolside, then sunset painted cocktail parties the next. The spacious rooms, copious amounts of storage, abundant natural light, and convenient details prove that this home was custom designed to be a most comfortable retreat.

Part of the exclusive gated “North Kinneloa Ranch” neighborhood, the home is located high in the hills of the San Gabriels, and could not be more beautifully sited. The pool and deck area, raised and set back from the street, offers city and sunset views in the front of the home, and behind, a flat yard of grass and landscaped borders, plus a workshop and office off the oversized garage, motor court which can double as a sports area, and the upper level orchard of persimmon, avocado, plum, grapefruit, and lime and lemon trees with the mountain backdrop. Here, serenity and privacy abound while only about two miles from the bustling city.
