Home of the Week: A post-and-beam beauty in Pasadena

By Lauren Beale

Framed by a backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains, this 1970s house in Pasadena is a prime example of the post-and-beam style. A long hedged driveway leads to a motor court and the home’s wooden double door. Inside, the interiors are like a museum for a not-so-distance past.

The kitchen was recently redesigned by architect Barbara Bestor to be entertainer-friendly. The master wing also has been remodeled; the remaining bedrooms have been restored to retain their original architecture.

Walls of glass and oversized clerestory windows create a unified and well-proportioned appearance from the outside, where there are a swimming pool and surrounding deck.
