Well well well, looks like the housing gods have seen fit to favor us with a time capsule listing, and a very fine one at that. Located at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains in northern Altadena, the well-preserved post-and-beam was designed by USC-trained architects Fred Dinger and Harlan Pedersen in 1962.
Available for the first time in more than two decades, the four-bedroom, two-bath home’s original features include vaulted beamed ceilings, wood-paneled walls, casement windows, cork floors, ceramic tile, and custom light fixtures.
Per the listing, there’s also a “custom fireplace screen by noted sculptor, and one-time neighbor, David Green, whose wife is the namesake of the street—Jaxine Drive, a street filled with architectural homes.”
Well-integrated into its .65-acre lot, the 1,944-square-foot residence is asking $1.1 million. Open houses are scheduled from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Henry Blackham and Maureen Erbe of Deasy Penner Podley share the listing.
