$2.3 Million Homes in California, North Carolina and Massachusetts

By Julie Lasky

James Allen Walter, a California architect, designed this house for Geoffrey and Doreen Siodmak, a couple who moved in when South Pasadena was “just goats grazing and some avocado trees growing,” as Ms. Siodmak later described it to a historian. The home is being sold by its second owners, following a respectful renovation that involved new insulation, plumbing and electrical systems, windows and doors, and an updated kitchen and bathrooms. The home is at the end of a cul-de-sac, about 10 miles northeast of downtown Los Angeles.

Size: 2,252 square feet

Price per square foot: $999

Indoors: Orange double doors open to a forecourt, and glass-panel doors take you into the house. The U-shaped building’s two long wings are on either side of a large outdoor deck. The wings have vaulted ceilings with dark beams; newly laid cork floors; and glass walls facing the deck.
