We can't say we were heretofore familiar with the name or work of architect Marvin O. Berman, but judging by the looks of this new listing, we like the cut of his jib. A USC grad who worked with Richard Neutra and Victor Gruen, Berman designed this South Pasadena post and beam in 1959. Per the listing, the three-bedroom house's original touches include vaulted ceilings, walls of glass, clerestory windows, and a block fireplace, though its kitchen and baths have been remodeled. Sited on a 6,754 square foot lot with views of the Colorado Bridge and surrounding hillsides, it's listed with an asking price of $875,000.
