Home of the Day: Midcentury rambler in Altadena

Walls of glass and a post-and-beam patio lend to the midcentury charm of this Atomic Ranch in Altadena.
(Susan Pickering)

Bright tones, ornate details and walls of glass enliven the interiors of this updated Atomic Ranch-style residence in Altadena. The living room, with built-in bookshelves on either wall, centers on a classic midcentury fireplace, which also serves as an accent wall in the adjacent dining room. Off of the owner’s suite, a private deck is shaded by tall Deodar cedars.
