This exquisite midcentury modern home was constructed in 1960 for the parents of architect Ena Dubnoff. According to a Survey LA report, Dubnoff had recently graduated from USC and was employed at the time by Buff, Straub, and Hensman. The celebrated firm is officially credited with the home’s design, though Dubnoff took the lead role on the project.
The T-shaped home is situated on a quarter-acre lot near the western border of Pasadena. Built in a way that emphasizes the scenic surroundings, the house features glass walls and outdoor access from nearly every room. Patios and outdoor sitting areas circle the 2,239-square-foot home.
The interior offers beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, a step-down living room, three bedrooms, and a pair of vintage tiled bathrooms. The carport also serves as an access point for an office with a three-quarter bath of its own. On the market for the first time since 1988, the home is asking $1.475 million.
