Midcentury California home with soaring garden room lists for $1.68m

With floor-to-ceiling glass and leafy views

Glazed, voluminous spaces in this Californian midcentury home connect it to its green surroundings.

Architect R Van Buren Livingston designed the sprawling Brittain-Wachs Residence in the Lakewood Country Club Estates on a large 0.66-acre plot opposite the golf course. The modernist home was built in 1948 for housebuilder Harry Brittain and has changed hands only once since then when it bought by the Wachs in the 1950s – earning its moniker.

Rooms with glazed doors radiate off the California property’s main entertaining space – a two-storey birch-panelled garden room with full-height window wall and south-facing clerestory windows, which fill it with light throughout the day.

Ceiling-height plants enhance the indoor-outdoor feel in the four-bedroom home, which is on sale for $1.68m with Nate Cole of Unique California Property.
