On Monday I attended an LA Conservancy meeting at the Craig House in Chatsworth. It was designed by Paul R. Williams in 1939 on many acres of then rural land.
The house, sheathed in flagstone, is a diagonally shaped ranch with an outdoor covered veranda whose arms swing around a pool. One enters through an outdoor entrance opening into a courtyard.
Idyllic and cozy, grand and understated, it reaches back into the old San Fernando Valley of gracious living and modern convenience for a lucky few.
