Built in 1952, the property was designed by architect Albert P. Martin as his own residence after having apprenticed with Richard Neutra. Martin set the home atop challenging hillside terrain and took full advantage of the site’s sweeping reservoir views with floor-to-ceiling glass and outdoor patios.

Behind the bright red entrance door is a concrete block fireplace and a snug den.

The original floor plan and design elements remain—from the concrete block fireplace to the restored sconces. The vaulted ceiling is made from western red cedar.
