Dr. W. Thomas, who was the first principal of CV High School, acquired this private parcel in Whiting Woods, and commissioned Clair Earl to design this brilliant mid-century modern work of art for his family. It has been featured in a mid-century architectural magazine and by the Glendale Historical Society in their tour of modern homes. The current Owner/Steward has sought to preserve it, while completing several tasteful upgrades throughout.
Native plants along the artfully designed front stair and landing welcome you to the front door, which opens to an inviting entry with the original slate flooring. The formal living room has Brazilian cherry wood floors, original mahogany paneling, and a Palos Verdes stone fireplace with a floating hearth. The kitchen has been elegantly remodeled with quartzite slab counters, custom built alder cabinetry, a cantina window over the sink, high end stainless appliances, and opens to the adjacent family room where both look out over the rear grounds through walls of glass. This main level also has a great home office/gym, guest powder room, laundry room, and a large storage room.
The rich wood floors continue upstairs to the three bedrooms and two tastefully remodeled baths with Kohler fixtures and Mission Tile. The master retreat enjoys a beautiful view, fireplace, and its own gorgeous master bath. The rear yard has an outdoor entertaining area, pampered gardens, and a large pool surrounded by the natural beauty of this hidden neighborhood. Additional features include: central air and heating systems, a Sonos system with three zones for interior and exterior sound, two water heaters, a newer roof, solar panels with Tesla battery backup, and the award-winning schools of the CV district.
