Gorgeous Mid-Century In Pasadena, $1.375M

By Philip Ferrato

A real estate unicorn, this 1959 Post+Beam has been put on the market by the estate of its original owners in original but beautifully maintained condition. And while no architect has been identified, this house is very much of its time, and in a way that’s rarely seen today.

If we had to make an educated guess, we’d choose Eugene Weston III, a third-generation architect who worked in and around Pasadena and Orange County. Some of Weston’s signature details appear here: the cantilevered hearth and exposed smokestack chimney flue; the very simply detailed kitchen cabinets that form their own partitions and have a peek-a-boo opening to the living area; a cooktop facing a window and the view; the visually featherweight wood window frames containing expanses of glass.

Weston was also once quoted in the LA Times as saying “…the house is the last of the handcrafted objects” which, considering the explosion of furniture, ceramics, and textiles produced in the Post War era (especially in California) seems… shortsighted.
