This Pasadena post and beam with a Barbara Bestor-designed kitchen just hit the market. And it’s some kind of wonderful.
With the San Gabriel Mountains providing a scenic backdrop, this architectural beauty was designed by USC School of Architecture student Thomas A. Dismukes, AIA. As you take the long, hedged for, privacy drive leading to a motor court and the entrance, it’s obvious this home is about to exceed your mid-century modern desires.
The interior centers around well-proportioned, open spaces. Continuous glass walls and double-height clerestory windows create volume, light, and an enviable indoor-outdoor flow.
Entertaining flows from the Barbara Bestor-designed chef’s kitchen to expansive outdoor spaces that include a serene pool, garden, northern mountain views, and an expansive southern deck looking out to views of the city below.
Bedrooms are on their own with a remodeled master wing. And if four bedrooms aren’t enough, a guest wing provides three additional bedrooms and a bath.
Everything is impeccably restored, from the grounds to the structure, to enhance and respect the original outstanding architecture, making this home wonderful. (The Porsches are not included.)
