Home of the Week: Beautifully updated Mid-Century jewel on a private road in Pasadena

Embraced by a stunning mountain panorama, this 1953 post and beam home embodies the California Modern living at its very best.
Set on nearly three-quarters of an acre, the home centers around a massive open living area with soaring beamed ceiling. 
A sweeping wall of glass admits light and utterly private mountain vistas. The flowing arrangement encompasses living, dining and kitchen spaces, surrounded by original brick walls, floored in ceramic light oak tile, and anchored by a floor-to-ceiling fireplace. 
The open gourmet kitchen is appointed with custom walnut cabinetry, a shimmering wall of period-perfect tile and a quartz waterfall island. The living space transitions effortlessly to an array of outdoor entertaining areas, with broad stone steps leading from the patio up to a large view pool and an avocado grove. The three-bedroom home is divided into two wings. One houses a lavish master suite with sitting room, full wall of glass with sliding door to the patio, walk-in closet and luxurious spa bath. 
In the other wing, two more generous bedrooms feature full baths with deep tubs and showers., A large paving stone motor-court with automatic gate and an open two-car garage with storage space complete this timelessly modern setting.
The residence on private 1987 Windover Road is listed by Colette Dornblum at $1,998,000.
