Lovely example of its type, with this 1950s Calvin Straub-designed midcentury modern property in Pasadena, California, USA very much true to the original design.
The house specifically dates back to 1958, with architect Calvin Straub being senior partner of Buff, Straub & Hensman and referred to as ‘the father of California post and beam architecture’. So some pedigree there. It is in stunning condition, with the agent adding that it has been ‘carefully maintained in nearly original condition since new’, which accounts for all those lovely fitted furnishings appearing like they’ve just come off the builder’s truck.
As for space, the house was designed in the indoor/outdoor style, with the inside space including three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a double-height living room with walls of glass, beamed ceilings, a brick fireplace, lots of built-in storage and best of all, a double car port with ‘elevator’ to the ground floor’. The atomic age, you’ve got to love it.
All that interior space opens directly to the outdoor ‘entertainment area’ and the property’s hillside gardens.
It’s a gem and it can be yours for $995,000, which works out at £666,354.
