The Siodmak House :: Restored 1967 Mid-Century Post & Beam
Rare architectural find; exceptional Mid-Century four bedroom, two bath home on large private lot with views of mountains and greater Los Angeles in sought after South Pasadena School District. Designed by James Allen Walter in 1967 for an artistic family, this stunning and timeless 2,252 square foot residence is one of only 32 homes in California by the coveted architect.
Sited on a quiet cul-de-sac and unfolding gradually through a dramatic entrance set back from the street, the home’s inward-facing open plan encourages indoor-outdoor living with multiple outdoor entertainment and play areas, while maximizing privacy.
Spectacular vaulted ceilings further expand the home’s spacious and fluid layout. Three skylights in the sleeping wing invite yet more nature and California sunshine into this cinematic, interrelated space. Beautiful shared kitchen, dining and living area with renovated fireplace, and Japanese tile are perfect for meals and entertaining, and open to a large outdoor deck, private garden and the rest of the home through magnificent glass walls of windows and doors. All new kitchen includes elegant 12-foot soapstone island with ample and intelligent storage space.
Thoughtful renovation provides new insulation, plumbing and electrical, large updated bathrooms, generous storage, and new appliances, while preserving original architectural structure and spirit of this distinctive masterwork, which has been featured in Domus, Better Homes & Gardens, and the Los Angeles Times, among others. Unique opportunity to live in a comprehensive architectural work of art.
