A four-bedroom house with a detached studio in Los Angeles, a 1907 Mediterranean-style home in San Francisco and a French Country-style retreat in Sonoma.

This house near the top of Coldwater Canyon was designed by Gerard Colcord, a prolific midcentury architect who offered a traditional alternative to the modernist styles popular in Southern California at the time. It was recently updated by Julia Dempster, an interior designer, with a new kitchen, new bathrooms and new interior paint.

The property is about 10 minutes from an Erewhon market, a popular sushi restaurant and a Trader Joe’s in Studio City. Driving to Beverly Hills takes about 15 minutes.

Size: 3,529 square feet

Price per square foot: $1,415

Indoors: A wide gate separates this property from the street, and the driveway leads to a two-car garage. From there, a paved path leads to the front door, which opens into a foyer with a staircase to the second floor.

The living room, to the left of the foyer, has white-painted paneling, a black accent wall, wide-plank floors, a stone fireplace and expansive glass doors that open to a patio behind the house.

The dining room is also off the foyer, with a bay of windows facing the patio. This space connects to a sunny breakfast room and to the kitchen, which has custom-made black cabinetry with goldtone hardware, a coordinating gas range and access to a powder room.

The family room, on the other side of the kitchen, has a wide brick fireplace, a built-in window seat under a large picture window and access to a bedroom with an en suite bathroom.
