Have we lost our roots?

Sometimes, in the interest of compromise and appeasement, we make so many sacrifices that we end up in a place we hardly recognize. And it’s houses like this one that remind me of that. The formula is pretty simple — a wide, low, modern ranch on a sizable lot, with a beautiful view. It’s a tried-and-true recipe for excellent living whether you have a large family or just need space to spread out.

John Lyttle was a home builder who understood this intimately, and his homes dot the hills and streets of North Tustin and Orange. This is one of his better designs. My only lament is that the price of entry for a home like this is now well North of $1M — even for a home like this that has great bones, but needs some well-thought concessions to the times. This home could be spectacular — and by spectacular, I mean featured on CurbedLA and adorning the pages of Sunset.

I just hope it goes to someone who has the vision (and the greenbacks) to get it there.

Don’t let this one get away. We would love to show you this home.
