    Description

    This beautifully unique Los Altos home presents a special opportunity to own a manifestation of an artists vision. This 1952 Los Altos home was purchased by Dr. Ward Youry, who established and lead the ceramics department at Cal State Long Beach University. Much care was taken by Youry in improving the home to his modernist vision. In 1965, Youry hired architect Leopold Fischer to design a pavilion style addition, which offers expansive, uninterrupted spans of floor to ceiling glass. The landscaping plan followed from there with curated plantings, multiple distinct outdoor areas, garden structures, and hardscaping in earthy stack-bond laid brick. The open and airy main house consists of 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom with expansive living areas and captivating views of the pristine grounds. The sunken living room is spacious and highlighted by a elegant masonry fireplace and custom built-ins. In addition to the main house, a guest suite was designed, which consists of an artist studio with a beautiful glass wall and a bathroom; perfect for guests, an office space, or creative use. There is a two car detached garage at the back of the property and additional parking is available on the driveway and under the porte cochere. If you value thoughtful architecture, expansive views, and indoor/outdoor living, this is a property that must be experienced to be appreciated.
