Kazuo Umemoto, while not a household name, built the kind of midcentury modern homes that modernists flock to in Los Angeles.

Mid-century modern home for sale by Kazuo Umemoto

Built in 1961, the Donald and Dolores Hamilton Residence, located at 4319 San Rafael Avenue in Mt Washington, is set back from the street for maximum privacy and elevated above the private drive to allow light to filter through the open interior and views across the city from its gentle hillside setting.

Adept in the classic post and beam glass house style pioneered by the USC School of Architecture, Umemoto designed an interior flanked by walls of glass that either pull your attention towards views of the San Gabriel Mountain vistas or has you eyeing the patio with a pool you’ll eventually upgrade.

The 1,534 square feet of living space holds three bedrooms, three baths and centers around an open living room and dining area.

Classic post and beam details include roof beams reaching beyond the walls of glass to the front and the back along with the original lighting and window shades.

There’s also a two car garage.

Offered for the first time, the home is listed for $1.195 million.
