Surrounded by the lush landscape of the valley between Pasadena's storied Langham District and San Marino's Huntington Gardens and Lacy Park lies the Jones House designed by William B. Wilke of William B. Wilke & Associates. Sited on over half an acre, the house is an excellent example of refined mid-century architecture. A semi-circular drive provides an elegant arrival to the single story home. The entry doors are coupled with original stone-clad walls that move from outside to in with a glass sidelight architectural reveal. Inside, the entry hall features its original terrazzo floors and walls of glass that lead to the pool patio under the canopy of mature oak trees. The residence has an L-shaped plan, allowing for all the primary spaces to orient towards the picturesque yard. To facilitate this, the house has over 72 linear feet of glass sliding doors. To the right side of the entry is a generously proportioned living room centered on a hearth with a cantilevered travertine ledge. The original Shoji Screen pockets behind the hearth to separate the guest wing, including its en suite bedroom and office. On the other side of the entry is the dining room and a discrete powder room. The recently renovated kitchen and den are just beyond a pocket door. Beyond these social spaces are the bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms are adjoined by a sliding door and share a restroom. At the end of the home is the primary suite with extensive closet space and an en suite bathroom with its own walled garden. An outdoor shower is just beyond. This residence provides a quiet calm in its natural setting as well as access to excellent urban amenities including San Marino schools and proximity to Mission St, the shops on Lake, downtown Pasadena and some of LA's best cultural institutions.
