Set on a knoll in the coveted south San Rafael neighborhood of Pasadena, this mid-century modern home offers privacy and tranquility, with views from every room. Originally constructed in 1955, The Siegel Residence bears all the hallmarks of its designer/builders, Norwood & DeLonge: glass expanses, indoor/outdoor flow, extensive storage space and many other mid-century characteristics.
The main floor features a spacious living room with large picture windows allowing for generous light and views, along with a brick fireplace and concrete hearth, flanked by built-in cabinetry. An open dining room sits adjacent and flows into the sun-filled family room overlooking the verdant backyard, pool and spa. The den, currently used as an artists’ studio, boasts walls of windows looking out over one of the home’s two bamboo groves, affording views while maintaining a sense of privacy.
The kitchen features Corian countertops resembling honed granite, and offers a breakfast nook which overlooks the outdoor patio. Three bedrooms and two updated bathrooms sit on a separate wing. The two guest rooms share a marvelous glass-tiled shower, while the Master suite offers a glass-tiled fireplace, bath and separate dressing area.
The home’s lower level features a bonus room, currently serving as a guest suite, three-quarter bath, and a large adjacent laundry/storage room. A carport was added in 1960 by the original builders, accentuating the mid-century aesthetic.
This stunning home has been lovingly maintained and curated by its artist-in-residence owners, whose thoughtful touches and colorful accents add to the home’s unique vibe and appeal.
