Perched among the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, this 1940s house by architect and Richard Neutra apprentice Harwell Hamilton Harris features an array of large windows, patios, and walkways from which to enjoy its excellent views.

The main house—a three-level, post and beam built in 1949—features skylights, two living rooms, a dining room, brick fireplaces, three bedrooms, and four bathrooms.

The Sierra Madre property also holds a studio designed by John T. Lyle in 1986. The studio holds an office, a bedroom, and bathroom, as well as a crop of “apparently random custom windows of all shapes and sizes,” as the listing describes it.

Between the two structures, there’s a rambling garden with citrus trees and a pond, also designed by Lyle, a master landscape architect who now has a school named in his honor at Cal Poly Pomona.

The .38-acre property is listed for $1.59 million.
