Pasadena Gets Its First Proto Home Built By Jewelry Designer Christian Tse

Where: 161 California Terrace, Pasadena
When: Sunday June 11, 2:00pm-4:00pm
Asking: $1,998,000
What: A new project designed by acclaimed jewelry designer Christian Tse and built by Proto Homes, the innovative LA-based manufacturer of beautifully detailed smart homes. Sited near the Arroyo and recently completed, the 5-bed, 4-bath property is represented by Partners Trust agent Giusy Mele-Brown. In classic California style, the double height living room opens to the outdoors, but all of the systems are up-to-the minute.

Managing to be both custom and pre-fab, Proto Homes takes the idea of manufactured housing to the next level, completing the structure, delivering it to the site where it's reassembled and finished. The entire process, from design to move-in takes just under a year.


A bridge runs across the entry, connecting the bedrooms, all of which are compact but luxuriously finished.


The deep yard accomdates a pool, multiple seating areas, plus the garage.
