Restored post-and-beam by James Allen Walter lists in Pasadena for $2.25m

By Betty Wood

Pasadena’s Siodmak House by architect James Allen Walter is fresh from a top-to-toe restoration and is seeking a new owner for $2.25m.

The four-bedroom Los Angeles property was first built in 1967 and is one of only 32 homes in California by the architect. Walter’s designs are coveted real estate thanks to their fluid layouts, vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and clever use of light.

The Siodmak House sits on a cul-de-sac and has views across greater Los Angeles to the mountains. Shared spaces fill one wing of the house – complete with a brick fireplace, Japanese tiles, skylit, vaulted ceilings and a reimagined kitchen – while bedrooms are in the other.

Large glass doors and windows peek onto the landscaped gardens and a large deck for outdoor entertaining.

The Art Of Amy: Art Show And Fundraiser

On Sunday January 26th 2020, the first ever public viewing of the art of Amy Rabins (1935-2019) will take place in a touching exhibition celebrating her life and legacy. Organized by Amy’s family, the event will also include an auction of a selection of her paintings to raise money for foundations that Amy supported during her life, such as Park Century School, the Brain Recovery Project and City of Hope. Rabins worked as an entertainment finance executive for many of the major Hollywood studios and fostered a love of painting in her spare time.

Amy lived and painted at her home in Studio City; an elegant mid-century modern designed by architect Louis Katzman. Every home has a story, and this particular residence comprises a story of an artist with a lifelong passion for creating. Deasy Penner Podley is honored to represent the sale of this unique home; listed by agents Margot Tempereau and Barry Gray.
