This Midcentury home in the heart of San Marino is something of an anomaly for an area known for its grand Spanish and traditional-style estates.
Upgraded and remodeled, the 1950s home retains its modernist qualities. Clean lines, vaulted ceilings with exposed beams and light-filled living spaces are among details of note. Rooms set in a U-shaped design open directly to a swimming pool and Ipe wood decking for entertaining outdoors.
