Extensively published and painstakingly restored, The Thomson Residence, 1957 designed by famed Modernist architects Buff, Straub, and Hensman is the crown jewel of the Poppy Peak Historic District. Named after the highest peak in the San Rafael Hills, Poppy Peak is comprised of 45 homes, 30 of which contribute to the area’s museum-worthy architecture. Considered to be one of the most important early works of the Post and Beam style coming out of the USC School of Architecture; its defining feature being the two-story soaring walls of glass in the main living area. Here, the natural elements of light and wood work seamlessly together to create the indoor/outdoor ambiance so coveted by Mid-Century Modern devotees. Every square foot of space in this striking home has been restored in extreme detail, so much so that the City of Pasadena bestowed the 2012 Preservation Award to the home. Complete with modern updates such as new roof, plumbing, electrical, and HVAC system, this home also benefits from Mills Act tax savings. Enjoy pride of ownership in one of Southern California’s architectural treasures.
