This sharp midcentury residence sits perched on a hillside in the southwest corner of Pasadena, directly north of Highland Park.

Built in 1958, the 2,024-square-foot post and beam boasts some lovely original details, including beamed ceilings, colored glass windows, wood-paneled walls, built-in shelving, and a stately fireplace in the living room.

The house has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms. Walls of glass can be found throughout, and sliding doors lead out to a huge wooden deck with ample space for outdoor dining. The kitchen has been recently updated and is now equipped with stainless steel appliances and a large center island.

Situated on a 7,861-square-foot lot, the well-preserved home is elevated over a swooping driveway that circles beneath the house. Balcony space wraps most of the residence, and the hilly yard offers views into the surrounding neighborhood.

Asking price is $1.1 million.

The living room includes a large fireplace and built-in cabinetry.
The home’s kitchen is equipped with new appliances (including a double oven).
Wood paneling and beamed ceilings can be found throughout the home.
The kitchen opens to a large, covered deck overlooking the yard.
