The Wade Residence, 1939


While Webster is not commonly known, his iconic contributions to Southern California’s built environment still resonate. L.A.’s Chinatown, and Palm Spring’s landmark Ship of the Desert are his designs. Here, Webster’s carefully understated Traditional Moderne residence gracefully sweeps across its corner-lot site, which offers an astonishing 180 feet of street frontage, and opens to resort-like rear grounds incorporating generous play lawns, pool, patios and a sports court. Interiors have been meticulously updated to a high standard in keeping with the style, and provide a move-in ready opportunity for family and guests to luxuriate in California’s celebrated indoor-outdoor casual living lifestyle. Residence includes: Spacious open plan living and dining areas, 4 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths, office/library and attached garage.
