Built in 1956
This two-story, A-Frame mid-century style home is nestled in the esteemed Linda Vista Hills area of Pasadena. Offering a secluded and intimate environment among Sycamore and Oak trees, the home is sensitively merged into the hillside. The home was designed by Edward "Ted" Grenzbach, one of Los Angeles' premier architects of post World War II period. Known as an "Architect to the Stars", he created homes for Hollywood notables including Frank Sinatra, Rock Hudson and Johnny Carson. Grenzbach's dramatic, iconic style is felt as you approach the home. His design of wall-to-wall glass sliding doors along the front of the home enable's you to see through the house before you walk in the door! This provides incredible natural light to float into the home providing a seamless feeling between the interior and exterior spaces.
