A Rare and Restored 1967 Post-and-Beam in South Pasadena Hits the Market for $2.25M

By Jennifer Baum Lagdameo

Designed by James Allen Walter, this timeless Mid-Century gem is one of only 32 homes in California by the coveted architect.

Set in a quiet cul-de-sac on a large, private lot with mountain views, 2050 La Fremontia Street, also known as the Siodmak House, was designed in 1967 by California Mid-Century architect James Allen Walter. One of only 32 homes in California designed by Walter, the 2,252-square-foot post-and-beam structure features a sleek, dark-wood facade highlighted by a pair of bright orange front doors.

The four-bedroom, two-bath, U-shaped home is actually composed of two rectangular volumes, connected by the front doors, which open into a serene interior courtyard garden. From there, the home gradually unfolds into an inward-facing, open-plan layout centered around an elongated courtyard. The design encourages indoor/outdoor living, while walls of glass, clerestory windows and skylights fill every corner with natural light.
