390 N San Rafael Ave, Pasadena, CA

The Haugaard Residence, Robert Duncan Haugaard Jr. A.I.A. (1956). Tucked away in the San Rafael hills on a sprawling one-half-acre lot surrounded by towering trees and an open canyon vista the residence offers a perfect balance of indoor and outdoor casual living spaces within a blanket of serenity. An open plan interior with floor-to-ceiling windows and wall-to-wall glass sliders throughout draw in the surrounding landscape curated by design-driven Terremoto celebrating the MCM philosophy that creates better living through design and functionality. An extensive restoration and renovation by designer Kathryn McCullough were recently concluded honoring the original design mirroring strong geometric lines expressed in newly built-in seating, shelves, and cabinetry. A custom color palette stays true to the period of the home. A formal living room with stacked red-brick fireplace, pitched wood-clad ceiling, and floor-to-ceiling windows offers panoramic views. An open-concept kitchen and dining room are the heart of the home with walls of glass flanked by an intimate courtyard with soothing water feature on one side, the other to park-like grounds with patio, pool and spa where local deer may be an occasional guest. The new kitchen features exceptional cherry wood cabinetry, honed infinity black quartzite counters, and unlacquered brass fixtures. Professional-grade appliances are integrated for a seamless finish. A separate wing houses a generous primary suite with sitting area. A vaulted wood-clad ceiling with an oversized Noguchi pendant sphere complements the volume of the space. A  new bath with skylights brings streams of natural light highlighting earth-tone grigio sienna marble on flooring and double sink vanity with white oak cabinetry. Waterworks fixtures add a luxurious finish. A walk-in closet and private outdoor space complete the suite. There are two additional bedrooms and baths. A large office space is light and bright with inspiring views. A generous-sized media room with vaulted cherry wood-clad ceiling is perfect for entertaining large groups or intimate movie nights.  A newly refinished 2-car detached garage with utility area offers an additional 488sf and many possibilities. Well-sited off the main road down a long drive adds to the privacy. Located in the coveted north San Rafael hills with close proximity to shopping, dining and Rose Bowl activities this is an exciting and rare opportunity to make this architectural gem your home.
