Architecture enthusiasts, get ready for a bidding war. Pasadena’s newly updated Case Study House #10 is back on the market.
Built in 1947 and included on the National Register of Historic Places, the home was designed by father-and-son duo Kemper Nomland and Kemper Nomland Jr. and included in the influential Case Study program sponsored by Arts and Architecture Magazine.
The homes designed during the program’s long run shaped the development of modern architecture and made Los Angeles a key center of the movement.
This particular residence is the only Case Study house constructed in Pasadena. It last sold in 2012 and shortly after received a thorough restoration overseen by Design Vidal. The home’s owners received a Historic Preservation Award from the city of Pasadena in 2015.
The 3,425-square-foot home has four bedrooms and four bathrooms, along with an open living and dining room area that flows into the kitchen. The entire residence has been thoroughly updated since it last sold and the kitchen and bathrooms have been equipped with contemporary appliances and fixtures.
Other interior features include hardwood floors, pitched ceilings, and walls of glass and sliding doors providing natural light and easy outdoor access. The airy living room is centered around an impressive, pillar-like brick fireplace.
The house sits on a 15,989-square-foot lot, with a grassy lawn, plenty of patio space, terraced gardens, and a swimming pool and spa.
Asking price is $2.99 million.
To get a look at the place before it sells, check out the open house Thursday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.
