The McMillan House, a hidden architectural gem designed by Conrad Buff and Donald Hensman, FAIA, is now on the market for the first time after years of discreet seclusion. Nestled in the quiet Linda Vista neighborhood, this simple single-level modernist was crafted for utmost privacy and remains largely unseen from the street. Situated on a 12,627 square foot private flag lot, accessed via a long driveway with gating and ample on-site parking, this 2,342 square foot contemporary home boasts two spacious bedrooms, a versatile study with Shoji doors, teak wood throughout, and three bathrooms. Inside, you'll find an open, airy layout with clean, minimalist lines that connect seamlessly with the outdoors. The master bedroom, tucked away at the rear, features custom wood cabinetry, a built-in bedroom set, a serene view of the backyard, and a double sinked master with Roman tub. The home is flooded with natural light through 13 skylights, and it offers modern comforts like central air and heat, all while retaining its iconic gunite stucco finishes indoors and out. The untouched kitchen opens to the rear gardens with a built-in BBQ, and the step-down living room with built-in wifi cabinetry leads to a large loggia overlooking the classic pebble-decked pool, spa, and lush gardens. Additional features include an attached two-car garage accessible through the laundry room, and proximity to Brookside Golf Club, the Rose Bowl, shopping, dining, and recreation spots. The sale includes original blueprints, the architect's manual, and notes, providing exciting insights into the home's design and history. Don't miss this rare opportunity to be the next caretaker of the McMillan House, a unique blend of privacy, elegance, and architectural legacy. Eligible for the National Register of Historic Places.
