Hitting the market for the first time in a decade is this spiffy Mid-Century Modern located just north of Millard’s Canyon in western Altadena. Built in 1959, the 1,656-square-foot post and beam was designed by Case Study architect Whitney R. Smith, who’s also known for his work with A. Quincy Jones in Brentwood’s Modernist housing development, Crestwood Hills. Sited on a 10,807-square-foot lot, the two-bedroom residence’s features include lovely cross-beamed ceilings, walls of glass, an updated bath redone with Heath ceramic tile, a newly rebuilt redwood deck, recently updated central heat and air, a gated front courtyard, and panoramic views of the San Gabriel mountains. Last sold for $ 685,000 in 2005, it’s now asking $ 710,000.
