Just east of the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, this home, built in 1954, has sweeping views and midcentury charm to spare. Here, elements synonymous with the popular style include: beamed ceilings, walls of glass, and a large stone fireplace with a built-in bookcase.
The third bedroom in the three-bedroom dwelling is outfitted with a kitchenette and bathroom, like its own little apartment—ideal for hosting visiting family and friends.
The house’s assets go beyond its interiors. The residence takes advantage of its outdoor space. A gated courtyard sits at the front of the 2,162-square-foot house; behind it, a large covered patio overlooking the surrounding hills and lush Rose Bowl grounds.
Architect Edward A. Kirtland built the house as his personal residence, says Mark Ogden of Sotheby’s International Realty, who has the listing.
