Welton Becket is primarily known for his work on grand-scale civic and commercial projects such as the Beverly Hilton, the Capitol Records Building, and the Parker Center. But the versatile architect also designed many outstanding private residences during his career, including this attractive specimen found in the Windsor Village historic district.

Built for a doctor and his family in 1936, the five-bedroom, three-bath home looks to have held up beautifully over the years. A mixture of Monterey Colonial and International Modern styles, its character features include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, wainscoting, original tile, French doors, casement windows, multiple fireplaces, and built-in hutches, vanities, and bookcases.

Per the listing, the house sits on an 8,596-square-foot lot that also contains a freestanding office or studio designed by Dion McCarthy, architect of Palm Springs’ Rowan Hotel.

Asking price is $1.749 million.
