    Description

    The Brittain-Wachs Residence, 1948. Designed for prominent home builder Harry L. Brittain by his close friend & USC trained architect R. Van Buren Livingston. Mr. Brittain chose for his own family home one of the largest lots in the newly formed Lakewood Country Club Estates. On this nearly 29,000 sf lot directly across from the golf course, the architect was able to create a distinctively modern home on a grand scale. At the home's center- a two story height beamed ceiling garden room with a floor to cei The Brittain-Wachs Residence, 1948. Designed for prominent home builder Harry L.

At the home's center- a two story height beamed ceiling garden room with a floor to ceiling window wall & band of south facing clerestory windows. The effect is an all day light show, bathing the birch paneled room & its indoor Fiddle-leaf fig trees. Clearly designed for entertaining, w/spacious open plan family/music room, dining, & kitchen all radiating from this central communal area. A first floor bedroom & 3 additional upstairs bedrooms each have their own full bath en suite & large closet area. In master bedroom, a wall of glass & patio overlooks the rear yard- a parklike expanse of lawn dotted w/various mature fruit trees. A fenced in pool & pool house occupy the Northernmost end of the property. The home has only changed hands once before- when purchased by Dr. and Mrs. Wachs in the 1950's. It was a home for them to raise their three children, who have cherished the property until current day. An opportunity for the restoration minded buyer to breathe new life into a rare fully intact mid-century modern home on a centrally located estate sized property.
