This Neutra-inspired modernist post and beam home is located in the prestigious San Rafael area of Pasadena. Originally designed in 1948 by the architectural firm of Charles Lindstrom,the home has since been remodeled to perfection. Skylights abound, flooding the home with natural light. Nearly every room boasts large expanses of glass doors and windows, framing views of prize winning gardens, creating a serene indoor/outdoor feel that starts in the expertly designed and decorated living room, and flows into the Cynthia Bennet-designed kitchen. The light filled dining room perfectly frames a view of the multi-level fountain sitting at the gated entry, designed by renown Japanese landscape architect, Takeo Uesugi. Beautiful and unique custom cabinetry can be found throughout. A spacious master suite on the first level offers a walk-in closet and a beautifully remodeled bathroom, featuring penny tiles and a steam shower. Glass walls and French door lead to a private patio (one of many that can be found on all sides of the home) completing the Zen-like feel of the suite. The original gardens, including two fully functioning fountains, were designed by famed mid-century landscape architect, Garret Eckbow. The gardens were refurbished in 2004 by Takeo Uesugi.
