‘Mad Men’ producer selling fantastic midcentury modern in Pasadena

By Elijah Chiland

This extraordinary post and beam residence in Pasadena was built in 1957 and remains in great enough shape that the city honored it with a preservation award in 2012.

Designed by the architectural firm of Conrad Buff, Calvin Straub, and Donald Hensman, the house rises two stories and features walls of glass throughout the double-height living area. It’s got three bedrooms and three bathrooms spread across 1,885 square feet of living space.

Other features include beamed ceilings, built-in shelving and cabinetry, glass doors, and a handsome brick fireplace in the living room. The house has also recently been updated with new plumbing, electrical, and climate control; and the kitchen has been equipped with new appliances, though it retains plenty of midcentury style.
