This Mid-Century Architectural gem is set on more than an acre of prime, end-of-cul-de-sac land in the coveted Annandale Estates. Designed by famed Pasadena/San Marino architect E.A. Daniell, who gained early notoriety for his period revival bungalows in the late 1920s, the home was constructed 1961 and has since been expanded to include a resort-style pool and spa and an expansive primary suite.

The gated drive welcomes you to a two-car garage and front courtyard. Inside, one is immediately struck by the light and volume of the living space. Large windows and sliding doors spill onto a terrace that spans the full main level, creating a tranquil and private indoor/outdoor setting. While modern, the design incorporates soothing natural elements such as slate floors, wood and stone finishes in the professional-grade kitchen, and a dining space surrounded on three sides with fabulous treetop views. The main level also includes a home office with half bath, a bedroom/full bath suite, and a second bedroom with RTI permits in place to create another large suite. On the lower level is the entertainer's family room, complete with fireplace, built-in wet bar and media center, and sliding doors to a covered loggia. Laundry and a guest suite are also on this level, and the expansive primary suite with spa-like bath and a huge, dressing-room style closet. A rare luxury, every single bedroom opens to a balcony or patio. The terraced yard provides flexibility for sizable parties as well as day-to-day relaxation. Enjoy sun and privacy at the pool and spa, embraced with stone patio hardscape and mature landscaping.

As a significant architectural work, the property is designated by the City of Pasadena as eligible for inclusion in a potential Landmark District. Nestled in near-total seclusion yet only minutes from freeways and local hotspots, this home is a rare offering of location, lifestyle and architectural pedigree.
