One of Buff & Hensman’s final masterpieces has hit the market in Pasadena for $2.749 million. The modern home perfectly captures the architectural team’s classic style with dark wood details, soaring ceilings, seamless indoor-outdoor environs and floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for natural light. Nestled on a cul-de-sac, the exclusive property offers 5,000-plus square feet of opulent living space on two levels.
Among the highlights: five bedrooms (including a sizeable master retreat with balcony); an atrium boasting lush greenery, sculptures and a fountain; and a living room with wood-burning fireplace. The handsome library has built-in bookshelves and a view of the front garden, while the terraced, park-like backyard overlooks the San Gabriel Mountains.
“Buff & Hensman are brilliant at bringing the outdoors in,” says listing agent Chris Reisbeck of The Agency. “The unique placement of windows throughout the home does just that, allowing buyers to feel the peaceful surroundings and enjoy the abundant oak trees.”
