New, 21 comments

This eye-catching residence in South Pasadena was the longtime home of architect Jean Roth Driskel, the third woman to be elected to the American Institute of Architects' College of Fellows. According to a 2001 LA Times article, Driskel designed and built the redwood and glass residence for her family between 1948 and 1951. Located on a cul-de-sac south of Monterey Road, the 2,000 square foot open-plan modern features three bedrooms, two baths, an office, beamed ceilings, a "full service wet bar, stainless steel Thermador appliances, 3 stainless steel sink/work stations, built-in coffeemaker, breakfast bar & Caesarstone countertops with a large center island, spacious deck barbecue, spa, pool," full copper plumbing, and an attached two-car garage. Last sold in 1999 for $395,000, it's now asking $1.125 million.
