This Pasadena pole and beam home of distinction in the San Rafael Hills is a rare find! Attributed to the multi-award winning design/build firm Pole Houses of California, founded by Gordon Steen in the 1970s, the unique design style quickly gained national and international acclaim. However, only a handful were constructed in Southern California. Inspired by the architecture of 16th century Japanese country homes, Steen interpreted the houses for Western living. With minimum excavation requirements and a cantilevered system of building, this design was well-suited to, and respectful of, hillside construction. The houses literally float over the terrain.This Pasadena property features many of Steen's signature design elements including a broad veranda that completely encircles the exterior, a marriage of rough and refined woods, 20 ft. high ceilings, numerous skylights and a unique venting system that promotes natural air circulation. The entrance level features a dramatic great room with stunning fireplace, an adjoining open kitchen, two main floor bedrooms and a bath. The staircase leads to a spacious ensuite primary bedroom and walk-in closet which occupies the entire loft.The current owner has thoughtfully updated the home with exquisite imported tiles, upgraded appliances and fixtures, added smart and energy-saving features(including paid solar panels,) and has further enhanced access and use of the exterior spaces without sacrificing the essence of the original home. As you stand in the midst of this adult treehouse, enjoy the calming aesthetic that has had enduring appeal throughout the decades.
