Guess How Much This Mid-Century Home Built By 23 Students Just Sold For

By Kathryn M.

Built by 23 students at Pasadena City College in California, this mid-century home was celebrated in a public display when construction was completed in 1960. The 1,200-square-foot structure, known as ‘Case Study House #11,’ was then sold via a silent auction and moved from the campus to its current location in nearby Altadena.

Many original features can be found throughout the home, which was once again auctioned off this past Saturday, July 27, with bids starting at $599,000. Scroll down to learn more about the property’s unique history and its latest sale price.

Extensive historical records provide more information about this model home and the Learn by Doing program at Pasadena City College. The student initiative, which started in 1949, aimed to complete one home each year as part of the college’s building construction class.
