The Crowell Residence, Thedore Pletsch, AIA, 1967. This expansive and private three-bedroom property is located behind secure gates just off Pasadena’s prestigious Millionaire’s Row. Featured in an article in the noted Los Angeles Times Home Magazine, this sophisticated and elegant property is an eclectic and stylish hybrid of contemporary design, 1960’s modern with the traditional elegance of an estate in Provence. A collaboration between renown architect Theodore Pletsch and interior designer Jean Crowell—for whom the house was built in 1967. The 3,001 square-foot property has massive glass sliding doors that offer multiple access points to the spectacular neoclassic gardens that feature a magnificent pool, covered patio and backyard worthy of a Slim Aarons photograph. The pool and gardens are built on a parcel purchased from the former Orange Grove estate next door designed by the firm Bennett & Haskell. The double-height living room features an elegant beamed ceiling and striking fireplace. The dramatic grounds are punctuated with terraced gardens, citrus trees, and a charming one-bedroom columned pool house that provides the perfect place to enjoy the Southern California sun.
