Acclaimed modernist architect Walter S. White designed a collection of just four bungalows in La Quinta Cove in the 1940s and 1950s, and the Paul Kaplan Group is excited to now represent one of these special homes. White was known for innovative designs that pushed the boundaries of the era, and this historically designated property, built in 1958, features a unique three-armed pinwheel floor plan, with a striking low pitched roof line that extends out from the home to create a wide, angular form. 

Abundant clerestory windows, walls of glass and sliding glass doors connect the outdoors with the interior. The home has been lovingly restored and modernized, while preserving the original design. 

The very private lot also includes a freestanding studio in the back yard.
