Situated on a leafy lot in Altadena, this handsome two-story by architect William N. Norwood showcases all the hallmarks of the Spanish Colonial Revival style: a clay-tile roof, decorative iron trim and intimate living spaces. But beyond the arched front entry, the 1920s home takes a more contemporary direction. The living room’s original wood-burning fireplace is now boosted by a decorative tile surround. Contrasting hues throughout give the interior a subdued vibe.
