This post and beam in Pasadena's San Rafael hills was built in 1961 for the parents of Buff, Smith & Hensman partner Dennis Smith. A Pasadena Historic Landmark and Mills Act-registered property (which qualifies it for tax breaks), the two bedroom, one and three-quarter baths home was also the subject of a 1964 Los Angeles Times Home magazine article entitled "Livability Plus in 1800 Square Feet." Per its listing, the house retains "nearly all of its original materials," while its "upgrades include: complete pool re-plaster & mosaic glass tile; copper plumbing; newer high energy efficiency furnace, water heater, gas line to pool; baths w/ tiled floors, shower walls, quartz countertop in master bath, & Venetian marble plaster, refinished kitchen cabinets & high-end appliances." Sited on a 12,420 square foot lot, it's listed at $1.25 million.
