The 195os home combines poured-in-place concrete walls with a post-and-beam roof.
This midcentury home in Whittier, California, lies hidden behind a row of towering hedges—but the brightly colored, 10-foot-tall doors hint at the fun to be found within.
Completed in 1956, the home comprises a 2,310-square-foot main house and a 500-square-foot studio, both of which feature poured-in-place concrete walls and post-and-beam roofs. The larger structure steals the show with floor-to-ceiling glass walls overlooking the backyard and “spider leg” beams that extend from the rear facade.
The renovated main house offers three bedrooms and two updated bathrooms, along with several sitting areas and a modernized kitchen. The adjacent studio also has a bathroom, so it could potentially be used as a guest suite or ADU. Outside, the .5-acre lot provides a spacious setting for outdoor activities.
