Yes, it's a big day in Pasadena. And yes, only three owners have ever sat in a Saarinen chair by this double-sided fireplace, flipping through a coffee table book on interiors. The two bedroom, one and a half bathroom house was built by architect Leland Christian in 1953 and has a galley kitchen, built-ins, and a "a den with wet bar and maple paneling that could serve as a third bedroom." That's our kind of bedroom. Anything to add, listing? "The light filled living room has a stacked canyon stone fireplace and floor to ceiling glass doors that lead to an inviting patio and views overlooking Pasadena." The house sold to Number Three in 1999 for $352,000. It's listed now at $699,000 or $458 per square foot. Here's the listing.
