Property Features and Details


Designed by influential architect Cliff May and built in 1954, this residence was recently refurbished by its architect and designer owners, who drew upon their experience and talents to create a calming palette inspired by their midcentury art. Anchoring the interior throughout is a light-toned Italian terrazzo tile floor balanced with rich custom birch cabinetry, dark trim to highlight the midcentury modern post-and-beam architecture, and white walls and ceilings to reflect natural light from the original Cliff May designed floor-to-ceiling windows and glass doors. The open island kitchen is the centerpiece of the home and features a striking combination of birch and matte black finish custom cabinetry with soft close hardware, Fisher & Paykel appliances including built-in refrigerator, 36" wide 5-burner gas range, dishwasher with double drawers, quartz countertop and Blanco Quatrus under-mount sink. And the attention to detail did not stop at the thresholds as the living areas connect to three separate outdoor spaces that have been thoughtfully curated for serenity, beauty and function. The majority of the property is situated behind a detached 2-car garage and custom designed fence, and the house sits toward the back of the lot for maximum privacy. Adding to the sense of calm is the property’s interior location within the neighborhood, well insulated from traffic noise yet in convenient proximity to 800 acre El Dorado Park and Nature Center and the San Gabriel River bike path to the beach.
