Agent Comments :: This very cool mid-century modern home achieves an exquisite harmony between natural surroundings outside and sleek streamlined comfort within. Creating this home for his personal residence, architect Alfred Day, a partner of Gregory Ain's, architect of the Park Planned Homes on Highview in Altadena, collaborated with well-known landscape architect Garrett Eckbo, author of Landscape for Living, to create a balanced blend of simplicity, function and natural beauty. Using floor-to-ceiling panels of glass, the lush terraced gardens and expansive vistas are incorporated directly into the living space, exemplifying the highest in landscape and architectural design.  The architectural integrity of the home has been preserved throughout the years, while still being well-maintained and updated. The craftsmanship evident in the custom windows, doors and cabinetry has been retained and is a testament to the artistry and care that went into the design and construction of the home.
