What You Get for $1.1 Million

A 1962 architect-designed house with three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.

Charles Wong, an architect who trained at the University of Southern California, designed this Japanese-inflected glass-and-timber home for a Los Angeles dentist named George Yuen and his wife. It sits on a bluff overlooking the Rueben Ingold Parkway, a recreational area in the View Park neighborhood about 10 miles southwest of downtown. Fun fact: It was the childhood home of Issa Rae, the co-creator and star of the HBO series “Insecure.”

Size: 3,593 square feet

Price per square foot: $306

Indoors: An external staircase rises from the ground to the front door on the main level. The door opens to a flowing great room where posts support a tongue-and-groove ceiling and where dry rock-faced garden beds are sunk into the oak-plank floor. A storage cabinet with a wall of shoji screens separates the living room from the dining area. At the other end of the living room is a fireplace with a wide marble hearth and a sculptured steel mantel.

Past the dining area is an open kitchen with custom cabinets, quartz countertops and narrow chocolate-brown backsplash tiles. A raised breakfast bar is on one side of the kitchen, and a second built-in breakfast table wraps around a corner of the opposite wall, continuing into the den.

The master bedroom has three exposures, with doors opening to a wraparound deck and outdoor patio; on the other side of the patio is an office with glass walls. The en suite master bathroom has a wood-grain Formica vanity with a travertine top and double sinks, and a tiled bathing room with a shower and a sunken Roman tub. A sliding door at the end opens to a private garden. A second bedroom has an en suite bathroom with Tuscan-style tile, a glass walk-in shower and a tub with jets. There is also a third bedroom.
