1952 Mid Century Modern
The Landis House, built in 1952 by architectural builder Arnold Dawson for Ira Landis, also named after The Riverside Landis Auditorium. This striking Mid Century Modern home has gone through an extensive renovation while keeping true to its MCM roots. The seamless flow of indoor/outdoor spaces invokes tranquility, and provides a multitude of outdoor spaces to relax in. The front of the home is secured by a private courtyard, enclosed with horizontal redwood fencing and a massive custom steel door. Sitting area with gas firepit and modern fountains make this courtyard perfect for relaxing day or night. The exterior siding has been re-designed with custom concrete panels and stainless-steel edging for a sleek and modern look. The large over hanging eaves, peak roofline and transom windows are a few architectural details that make this style home so desirable. The living and dining space open to each other and are surrounded by floor to ceiling glass sliding doors with incredible views of a custom waterfall fishpond and gardens. The dining area features built-in seating with extra storage. The kitchen has been completely remodeled with high-end appliances (LG Signature dual- fuel double range, Fisher and Paykel double drawer dishwasher) deep drawers for extra storage, and a built-in pantry. The floors throughout are modern tile and laminate. My favorite thing about this home is that every room in the house has sliding glass doors that open to a private patio summoning a Zen resort vibe. The 4th bedroom has been converted to an office with space for two. Built-in bookshelves and custom desks with sleek quartz counters and opens to the courtyard. The two full bathrooms have been tastefully remodeled with designer details. The hall bath has a large modern soaking tub juxtaposed a wall of jade stone and a waterfall zero- entry shower. The master bath has vaulted ceilings, sky light, and a curb-less walk-in shower with marble stone. The backyard is low maintenance with decomposed granite, lush succulents and extra patio space for al fresco dinner parties. With an extra deep driveway and decomposed granite, there’s plenty of room for trailer/ RV parking. Many wonderful citrus trees, such as tangelo, pomelo, blood orange, Myer lemon and kumquat offer year around enjoyment. Located on a tree lined cul-de-sac street with beautiful views of the mountains and Santa Anna riverbed. A five min drive to Downtown or The Plaza with tons of restaurant and night life.
