3947 Markridge Road in La Crescenta


Over looking the Angeles National Forest in La Cresenta on a sprawling six acre lot are two new to market architectural homes. The first home, the Dorothy Serulnic Residence was designed and built in 1953 by Richard Neutra. The Pittman and Dowell residence, designed and built in 2009 by Michael Maltzman sits at a lower point on the sprawling lot and is a complimentary structure. Bridging the two is The Pavilion, a California Native and Cactus garden.
