Featuring more glass than a greenhouse (or two), this sleek midcentury modern home in the hills of western Pasadena offers a stunning amount of natural light on a secluded half-acre lot insulated from the prying eyes of neighbors.
The large 3,990-square-foot house was built in 1963 and designed by James Pulliam, who later served as campus architect at Cal Poly Pomona. The front door opens into a two-story foyer with terrazzo floors and a floating staircase leading up to the second level.
Other interior features include floor-to-ceiling windows, wood-paneled walls, and parquet floors. The house holds four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms. The bathrooms and kitchen have been equipped with contemporary fixtures, appliances, and cabinets. A spacious living room is framed around a tall fireplace and opens, via glass sliding door, to the pool deck.
Trees and tall hedges abound on the lush grounds around the home, which include a swimming pool, multiple patio spaces, a two-car garage, and a small detached studio.
