Paul Williams midcentury modern in Inland Empire is a total heartthrob for $1.1M

By Bianca Barraga

This Ontario house is a rare Modernist work of renowned architect Paul Williams, better known for his Hollywood Regency-style homes and sprawling villas (as well as for his popularity among celebrities and Hollywood elites).

The Inland Empire residence was featured in (and on the cover of) architecture historian Alan Hess’s book Forgotten Modern: California Houses 1940 – 1970which lauded the house as superbly maintained.

Completed in 1948, the residence is filled with light from clerestory windows and walls of glass.

The two-story house holds a formal dining room, a vintage kitchen with a fold-down breakfast table, an original sideboard by Modernist woodworker Sam Maloof, three bathrooms, and three bedrooms.

The 2,040-square-foot dwelling sits on a spacious lot with fairly traditional landscaping: grass and an enormous tree. Scheduled to officially hit the market on Monday, it will be listed for $1.099 million.
