From Pasadena’s seemingly endless supply of outstanding architecture, here comes the Holland/Goudzwaard Residence, now on the market for the first time in 27 years. The three-bedroom, two-bath post and beam was designed in 1958 by the highly influential Calvin Straub of the firm Buff Straub & Hensman.

On a .41-acre woodsy lot in Linda Vista, the 1,692-square-foot home epitomizes the midcentury modern principle of blending indoors and out. Classic features include walls of glass, vaulted, beamed ceilings, clerestory windows, and an open floor plan.

Per the listing description, the property has been given “sensitive updates by architectural designer Bob Moore, who was recommended to the house by Don Hensman.” Asking price is $1.55 million.
