Glammed-Up Midcentury in Altadena Asking $1.45M

By Pauline O’Connor

This Altadena residence last popped up on the market a little over a year ago. As the photos from its previous listing reveal, the 1948 atomic ranch, while far from hideous, was decidedly lacking in luster. But since trading hands in June 2015 for $830,000, the three-bedroom has undergone a thorough revamp and is now returning to market as a much chicer and sleeker abode. Along with a new, more open floor plan, the 2,525-square-foot house boasts “disappearing glass walls,” fancy appliances, skylights, cement tile floors, custom walnut cabinetry and shelving, new HVAC/electrical/plumbing systems, and new landscaping. There’s also two fireplaces, a heated swimming pool, and a detached two-car garage. Occupying a 16,257-square-foot lot in the foothills west of Eaton Canyon, the property is listed at $1.45 million. Open house is scheduled for Sunday, June 5 between 2 and 4 p.m.
