Stunning midcentury modern by John F. Galbraith lists in Pasadena

June 5th, 2021|Properties|

With the San Gabriel Mountains as its backdrop, this stunning mid-century modern sits on almost a full acre in Pasadena’s small gated community of North Kinneloa Ranch with an enormous swimmer’s pool and breathtaking 180 degree panoramic views.

Designed by architect John F. Galbraith, “a Pasadena-based architect who designed a number of institutional, commercial and residential buildings,” the circa 1956 home underwent a masterful restoration.

Inside the three-bedroom home extends 3,272 square feet on a single level. A formal entry foyer with stone floor leads to the living and dining room with polished concrete floors and internal and exterior walls clad in vertical redwood planks. Floor-to-ceiling two-sided fireplace with double floating hearths is positioned in the middle of the open space. Glass walls blur the indoor/outdoor lines and frame the the patio, yard, swimmer’s pool, and sweeping city, mountain and sunset views.

The updated kitchen includes stainless appliances, new counter tops and lighting, along with breakfast bar, revived original mahogany cabinetry, and restored custom hood.

Bedrooms consist of a primary bedroom with a fireplace and newly redesigned bath plus two guest bedrooms and den. All the rooms have views of the outdoors.

Last sold in 2020 for $2,189,000, the home located at 2105 Villa Heights Road returns to the market asking $3.397 million and comes with a detached bonus space that could be an artist’s studio or office and an oversized two car garage.
