Snag a Bright 1950 Paul Tay Gem in Los Angeles

Modernist Paul Tay got his start in Long Beach after graduating from USC in 1950 and went on to design more than 30 residences there; this one in Bixby Knolls claims to be Tay's first. Built in 1950 as a spec house, the three-bedroom, two-bathroom house features a wall of built-ins and a large brick fireplace in the living room/dining room area, which is illuminated by a wall of giant windows overlooking the backyard and pool. (Those windows help the 1,475-square-foot house feel "dramatically larger than advertised.") The kitchen and bathrooms have been recently redone, and so has the heating and air conditioning. The house, which sits on a 6,474-square-foot lot, includes a front courtyard and multiple patios. It's listed for $749,000.
