1058 E. Claremont - Main

1058 E. Claremont Street, Pasadena //

Here’s a cozy little home in Pasadena’s Bungalow Heaven neighborhood that packs a fair bit of charm into less than 900 square feet of living space.

Built in 1922, the home sits on a compact 2,993-square-foot lot. The front of the home has a garden and walkway leading to the circular front porch. Inside are two bedrooms and one-and-three-quarters bathrooms, along with an airy living room and dining area illuminated by wide windows and French doors.

Hardwood floors run throughout the home, and other features include built-in shelving and a gas fireplace in the living room. The recently updated tile-floored kitchen includes new appliances and a farmhouse sink.

Double doors in the bedroom lead out to a small back deck and wraparound patio space with an added storage shed. There’s also a small studio space behind the house that could be used as a particularly snug home office.

Asking price is $565,000.

Modern Palm Springs Gem by Albert Frey Featured in CurbedLA

1164 N. Calle Rolph - Curbed

1164 N. Calle Rolph - Main

1164 N. Calle Rolph, Palm Springs // Open Saturday, February 24th 1-3pm

Part of a tract of World War II-era homes built as worker housing


Modernism Week events are ongoing in Palm Springs and plenty of pedigreed homes are up for grabs in the desert city. Case in point: this cozy post and beam by influential modern architect Albert Frey.

The simple residence was constructed in 1946 as part of a tract of homes commissioned as worker housing and designed by Frey at the tail end of World War II. The houses all feature identical floor plans, but different positions on each lot and unique paint jobs so as not to appear too uniform.

This house has plenty of modern style, with wide windows, tiled bathrooms, and plenty of indoor-outdoor access. The 1,150-square-foot home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, along with an airy kitchen with a vintage stove and refrigerator.

The house sits on a 10,000-square-foot lot, with a large driveway, attached garage, grassy backyard, and  spa/swimming pool. There’s even an outdoor shower—partially enclosed for privacy.

Asking price is $749,000. Worth noting: The home’s historic credentials qualify its owner for some tax breaks under California’s Mills Act.

Mid-Century Modern: Timeless, Elegant Design

Mid-Century Modern: Timeless, Elegant Design. The San Gabriel Valley is home to many historical homes and architectural styles, from the Beaux-Arts Masonic Temple, to the luxurious & contemporary Montana in the heart of Pasadena, to the Arts & Crafts-style Gamble House, to many of the iconic Mid-Century Case Study Houses and the Poppy Peak National Register Historic District

Developed in the decades following the end of World War II, the Mid-Century Modern style is typified by it’s flowing design, simple lines and contemporary patterns. Architecturally, this translates to wide glass windows, sliding glass doors and the use of natural materials to seamlessly connect and create indoor and outdoor flow. While the style has enjoyed immense popularity since the 1940’s, the television show Mad Men has created a new generation of enthusiasts.
