Located at the end of a long driveway in Altadena is this house that architect James De Long—a former Frank Lloyd Wright apprentice and fellow at FLW’s Taliesin—designed for his parents. The Usonian-esque residence (referring to the houses Wright created with the aim of making his work accessible to a middle-class Modernist homeowner), built in 1951, is still “mostly in its original condition” and there’s some really incredible stuff going on inside among the tray ceilings, concrete floors, handcrafted woodwork, and brickwork. Spread out over about 1,400 square feet, the two-bedroom, two-bathroom house includes a small, detached studio building, a patio, and a pool. The house is asking $539,000.
