Open House Obsession: Mid-Century Oasis in La Cañada Flintridge, $2.765MAuthor:Philip Ferrato
Where: 431 Inverness Drive, La Cañada Flintridge
When: Sunday, February 28 from 1:00pm-4:00pm
What: A 4-bed, 3-bath house with a pool and pool house, built in 1953 and designed by Keith Marston of Marston & Maybury (and the son of noted Pasadena architect Sylvanus Marston) with an easy indoor/outdoor flow that characterizes the best Mid-Century houses. Sited on an acre at the edge of an arroyo, the property has both unobstructed views of the San Gabriel Mountains and multiple outdoor spaces.
The 3200-sq-ft house is larger than it looks, with a long passage running from the front entry, revealing a sheltered patio and the main living areas.
The double-sided chimney has a grill in the dining area, plus the kitchen retains its Mid-Century vibe with a door and a pass-through.
Set away from the main house, the pool and 1-bath pool house share the same open mountain view. Plus there’s a great outdoor shower.
