Lane worked in commercial development with notable firms as Skidmore Owens & Merrill, A.C. Martin, and Pereira and Luckman dotting Los Angeles’ built environment with modern buildings like the Travelers Insurance Building in the Neo-Streamline Moderne style on Ventura Boulevard.

Previously owned by an international designer who meticulously maintained the original design features, the 3,007-square-foot post and beam boasts quintessential midcentury modern elements as beamed ceilings, wood paneling, a stacked-stone fireplace, built-ins, vintage light fixtures, and floor-to-ceiling walls of sliding glass leading to a newly added kidney-shaped pool.

“Blueprints and a specification book reveal the meticulous planning that went into this house ….” Seeking its third owner the home is listed for $2.950 million.
