Though best known for pioneering the California Ranch house in the early 1930s, prominent SoCal architect Cliff May also contributed to some remarkable condo properties that incorporated the indoor-outdoor dream of ranch homes into low-rise living. Completed in 1983, the Cliff May-designed Century Woods complex in Los Angeles features some of the same desirable attributes as the architect's single-story midcentury dwellings. This dramatic penthouse unit currently asking $2.6M, for example, includes a open plan living area with beamed ceilings and large glass walls that open to a generous balcony.

According to a listing rep, current owners spent 50 years collecting Asian antiques and art, a passion clearly reflected throughout the 4,483-square-foot residence. Beyond the striking custom-built indoor Zen garden, other highlights include a gorgeous master bath and garden-view terraces off the master bedroom and loft den.
