The three-bedroom modern is a “nod to Buff and Hensman”

Stirring up the market in Pasadena this week is a classic post and beam that’s had the same owner since being built in 1959.

Located at 300 Anita Drive in the San Rafael Hills, the two-story residence is described as “a nod to Buff and Hensman” in its listing copy, quite justifiably. Measuring 2,187 square feet, its signature features include tongue-and-groove beamed ceilings, an open floor plan, a slate fireplace, built-in storage and seating, clerestory windows, and the requisite walls of glass.

Along with three bedrooms and two and a half baths, it’s got a spacious lower level family room, an expansive dining patio with picturesque treetop and mountain vistas, and a wooded hillside lot of 8,403 square feet.

Asking $1.375 million, the time-capsule property is listed by Candace Gunther, Roland Wilhelm, and Alex Ford of Compass, along with Michael Darling and Sandi Rozman of Deasy Penner Podley. Open houses are scheduled for 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday (and if you go, you can give an actual nod to Buff and Hensman’s Maynard House, located at 400 Anita Drive).

A decorative slate fireplace is the focal point of the wood-paneled living room.
Lofty tongue and groove ceilings carry throughout the home’s main level.
Walls of glass slide open to a spacious deck that traverses the length of the house.
There are two and a half bathrooms.
The lower level contains a spacious family room with linoleum flooring and sizable picture windows.
The home sits on a woodsy lot of 8,403 square feet.
