It’s certainly not every day that you see an oven with a disappearing top burner! Why that didn’t catch on, we cannot say. But we can tell you a bit about this home’s architect, James De Long. A native of Eagle Rock, he apprenticed under Frank Lloyd Wright at Taliesin West before launching his own illustrious career in the late 1940s. In his five decades of practice, DeLong, who passed away in 2013, designed more than 100 homes in the Los Angeles area, two of which have been designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monuments.
