Located behind gates and lush landscaping in the Arroyo-Rose Bowl district of Northwest Pasadena, this thoughtfully renovated, four-bedroom, three-bathroom modern features an expansive one-story, light-filled floor plan, situated around a chic Palm Springs pool and setting. Re-imagined in 2011 by the current owner, this swank retreat uses many of the architectural characteristics typical of the modern period. In doing so, the residence keeps with the architects original intent: walls of windows, polished concrete flooring, stainless steel, stone countertops, custom finishes and a strategically placed 'statement' fireplace that pops against the serene backdrop. Large-scale entertaining or simple comfort is easily achieved through numerous quiet retreats within the home's interior and exterior spaces. Architecturally designed to promote indoor-outdoor living, compatible with a Southern California attitude and way of life, this is an environment that is at once relaxed and sophisticated, dramatic and beautiful. Framed by mature specimen trees, in scale with the modern architecture and welcoming pool area, the private garden features areas of both shade and sunshine, blooming trees, shrubs and vines throughout the seasons. Situated minutes from the famed Rose Bowl and adjacent Aquatic Center, with hiking trails, and numerous life-style activities, this stylish treasure offers it all.
