Pasadena mid-century modern designed by local architect John F. Galbraith seeks $2.2 million

By Sandra Barrera

A near-perfectly preserved mid-century modern home owned by the same family for 57 years is for sale at $2.189 million in Pasadena.

Designed by modernist architect John F. Galbraith and constructed in 1956, the three-bedroom house at 2105 Villa Heights Road has 3,567 square feet of living space. There’s a glass-front, redwood-enclosed entry, a double-sided Bouquet Canyon stone-clad fireplace with polished concrete hearths that links living and dining spaces, and a central kitchen with mahogany cabinetry, mostly stainless steel appliances and Formica countertops.

Just off the living room sits a cocktail bar with a miniature fridge, sink and cabinets.

An intercom system and a General Electric control panel for the kitchen’s original cooktop, since replaced, also add to the home’s character although they no longer function.

Glass walls and sliding doors seamlessly blur the line between indoors and out.

“When you think mid-century, this is what it should look like,” said Ann Nader of DPP Real Estate, the co-listing agent.

Nader highlights the “exquisite” and “truly beautiful” architectural lines, the expanses of redwood siding and floor-to-ceiling glass, and the hill-top location.

Set on nearly an acre in gated North Kinneloa Ranch, the home offers views of the Los Angeles basin.

On a clear day, the ocean is visible along the horizon.
