The Magical Modern is a retreat, a quiet sanctuary for individuals, small families, or small groups.
Wake up, walk out, and pick a mysteriously sweet grapefruit for breakfast, one of the many unique offerings of this dreamy mid-century home designed by local legend Theodore Pletsch with the original owner, the designer Jean Crowell.
A luxurious hideaway mere steps from the Arroyo, this gated refuge has two generous bedrooms with California king beds and private baths; a double-height living room filled with contemporary art and a large TV; a kitchen, dining room, laundry room; and an additional ¾ bath. The master bedroom, dining room and living all open directly onto a loggia connecting the house to the landscaped grounds, which include an overscaled Roman-style pool framed by river-rock walls and century-old oaks and a deluxe one-bedroom guesthouse with its own kitchen. Both the main house and the guesthouse have HDTV service as well as high-speed internet linked to a password-protected wifi network.
The home is well-situated, a block from the route of the Rose Parade, two blocks from the recreation opportunities of the Arroyo Seco, walking distance to shopping, bars, and restaurants, and a short drive to Old Town Pasadena, and other Pasadena amenities.
