Stunning midcentury modern by John F. Galbraith lists in Pasadena

With the San Gabriel Mountains as its backdrop, this stunning mid-century modern sits on almost a full acre in Pasadena’s small gated community of North Kinneloa Ranch with an enormous swimmer’s pool and breathtaking 180-degree panoramic views.

Designed by architect John F. Galbraith, “a Pasadena-based architect who designed a number of institutional, commercial, and residential buildings,” the circa 1956 home underwent a masterful restoration.

Inside, the three-bedroom home extends 3,272 square feet on a single level. A formal entry foyer with a stone floor leads to the living and dining room with polished concrete floors and internal and exterior walls clad in vertical redwood planks. Floor-to-ceiling two-sided fireplace with double floating hearths is positioned in the middle of the open space. Glass walls blur the indoor/outdoor lines. They frame the patio, yard, swimmer’s pool, and sweeping city, mountain, and sunset views.

The updated kitchen includes stainless appliances, new countertops, lighting, a breakfast bar, revived original mahogany cabinetry, and a restored custom hood.

Bedrooms consist of a primary bedroom with a fireplace and newly redesigned bath plus two guest bedrooms and den. All the rooms have views of the outdoors.

Last sold in 2020 for $2,189,000, the home located at 2105 Villa Heights Road returns to the market asking $3.397 million and comes with a detached bonus space that could be an artist’s studio or office and an oversized two-car garage.
