Clean lines, walls of floor-to-ceiling glass and a cantilevered master suite highlight this 1950s post-and-beam in La Cañada Flintridge. Designed by architect David A. Lopez, the open-area home retains such Midcentury details as a freestanding fireplace, beamed ceilings and wood built-ins and siding. A pool, an outdoor fire pit and a fruit orchard make up the nearly half-acre grounds.
