The Bendel Residence, by architects Marsh, Smith, and Powell (1951.) A modernist butterfly roofed design presents a dramatic profile, directing walls of glass towards mountain views. Entrance hallway of rich original wood paneling contrasted by a black slate tile floor leads to the spacious public areas of the house. Living, dining, family room, and kitchen all share a vast open floorplan, with a monumental brick fireplace and hearth as focal point. In the kitchen, custom mahogany cabinetry topped with quartz countertops surrounds top of the line Thermador appliances. Pantry storage, laundry area, and guest bath are grouped nearby. Original piano hinged door cleverly hides the hallway to the guest bedrooms and bath. An exposed brick wall stops short of the roofline to allow natural light through clerestory windows. Original closet doors and hardware remain, as do floor to ceiling windows facing a side patio garden and water feature. At the other end of the home is the generously sized master bedroom, dressing area, and en suite bath. With 12' tall ceilings, hardwood flooring, and full height windows to flood the space with light and frame distant views. Newer zoned forced air heating and cooling, updated electrical, interior + exterior Sonos sound system, and much more. The private 13,444 square foot lot allows space for several patios, garden, play areas, and a large swimming pool. Obscured by breezeblock is a long driveway leading to the 2 car garage, parking pad, & carport. An extraordinary property, well situated in the idyllic and tree lined streets of Pasadena's Brigden Ranch neighborhood.
