    Default 'Organic modern' in the hills of Glendale

    ( Al Seib / Los Angeles Times )

    By Debra Prinzing

    Christophe Burusco's hunt for a modernist house took him to the hills of Glendale and a single-story, stone-and-glass box that opened up to the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. Called the Daily House after original owners Allan and Jean Daily, the 1,900-square-foot residence had strayed far from its 1954 roots but the potential was undeniable. "Over time, it had become a traditional, all-American house with pink plaid wallpaper in the kitchen and swag drapes and gold shag carpeting in the living room," says Burusco, a lawyer who paid just under $500,000 and in 2001 became the property's second owner. "But I was blown away by the architecture, and I could see beyond all the bad cosmetic changes that had occurred."

    it's a gorgeous house. i'd change all the furniture in the living room except for the eames armchair and change the paint colour on the walls but it's a great house. i really like the kitchen.

    Love it all except that fugly oriental carpet, that shit needs to go.

    Also the coffee table is gross.

    The rest is mid-century, not modern. Pfft.

    It appears very restful.

    I absolutely love it. It looks so "cool" and soothing. I could just relax in there on a hot summer day and enjoy the scenery outside. Plus, the hot guy with the dog is welcomed to stay.

    Nothing special really(sorry, including the guy..not bad or anything but too skinny and all) and the ceilings are WAY too low for the size of the rooms. Very much a modern home characteristic design-from 1954.

    Not bad at all really..including the guy...but just nothing spectacular either.

    Are the ceilings ridiculously low or is he super tall?
