Now jazzing up the market in Pasadena is this jaunty 1951 modern built by the architectural firm of Marsh, Smith, and Powell, which also designed Hollywood High School and Santa Monica’s Parkhurst Building.

The three-bedroom home is located in northeast Pasadena’s Brigden Ranch neighborhood, though its butterfly roof, breezeblock entry, and swimming pool give it a distinctly Palm Springs feel.

Measuring 2,521 square feet, it features an open floor plan, twelve-foot ceilings, two fireplaces, clerestory windows, and walls of glass offering dramatic mountain views.

Updates include a modernized kitchen with custom mahogany cabinetry and quartz countertops, redone bathrooms, new heat, AC, and electrical systems.

Located on a 13,444-square-foot lot with a two-car garage and carport, the property is asking $1.499 million.
