Architect John Kelsey's Ladd & Kelsey House in Pasadena

New, 19 comments

This choice piece of real estate just north of Pasadena's Annandale Country Club was designed by John Kelsey and Thornton Ladd, the dynamic duo responsible for the Norton Simon Museum. Constructed in 1962 for Kelsey and his family, the three bedroom, three and a half bath residence is described by the listing as a "modernist Roman villa, wrapping around an impluvium (a pool open to the sky within the house)." Sited on a .63 acre lot, the property features a formal dining room paneled in bleached teak, terrazzo and concrete slab floors, and a guest house with full bath and separate entrance. And it's eligible for Mills Act tax breaks. Last sold in 2003 for $1.85 million, it's now listed at 2.595 million.
