It comes with a “writer’s cottage” too

With floor-to-ceiling windows and exposed beams, this circa-1950 abode is a lovely treat for any and all fans of midcentury design.

Sitting at the northwestern foot of the Claremont Canyon Regional Preserve and the Claremont Hills, 545 Panoramic Way, design by architect Judd Boynton, comes with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and 1,379 square feet.

Highlights here include wood details that grace the entire house, from the beamed ceilings to the built-ins along the wide foyer. For a warm and toasty touch, the living room, decked out in wood flooring and panels, comes with a working brick fireplace.

The master bathroom offers a soaking tub that overlooks an aboral setting outside. And speaking of choice views, there’s vistas of the hills and, far off in the distance, the cityscape of San Francisco from most of the home’s windows.

Outside there’s a concrete and brick patio with furniture, which leads to a downright adorable writer’s cottage. Swoon.

Asking is $1,050,000. Note that due to the shelter-in-place order, an open house or broker’s tour won’t be available, but it can be viewed through a video-tour.

The listing is through Colette Ford and Anja Plowright of The Grubb Co.
