1435 Linda Ridge Road, Pasadena

Sculptural in design, this Mid-Century is clad in glass and redwood with an arresting roofline and an open flow of the public spaces. The home showcases Mortimer “Tim” Matthews clear and striking style. A partner in the Pulliam& Matthews architectural firm, Mr. Matthews built this one-owner home in 1965 for his family. Sited on a private peninsula in West Pasadena’s Linda Vista Hills to take full advantage of the awe inspiring panoramic views. With over three-quarters of an acre, the setting is extraordinary, private and serene. There is a large flat garden, multiple patio areas, a pool and spa.

The home offers contemporary sophistication on a humane scale, the seamless transition of the indoor /outdoor spaces simply embody the California lifestyle. Every room has sliding glass doors to the patios, pool and gardens. The master bedroom suite is in a wing of the house unto itself with his and her bathrooms and dressing areas, a fireplace and sweeping vistas. The additional bedrooms and baths are located in a separate wing, the possibilities are endless. Found throughout the house are custom crafted built-ins. Bookcases, shelves, desks and chest of drawers providing an exceptional amount of storage while enhancing the design use of each space.
This home is a classic, a true contribution to the American Modernism architecture of the 1960’s and like a piece of art it’s a one of a kind.
