The Siegel Residence | Norwood & DeLonge, 1955
Set on a knoll in the coveted south San Rafael neighborhood of Pasadena, this mid-century modern home offers privacy and tranquility, with views from every room. Originally constructed in 1955, The Siegel Residence bears all the hallmarks of its designer/builders, Norwood & DeLonge: glass expanses, indoor/outdoor flow, extensive storage space and many other mid-century characteristics.
The 2,090 square foot (taped) main floor features a spacious living room with large picture windows allowing for generous light and views, along with a brick fireplace and concrete hearth, flanked by built-in cabinetry. An open dining room sits adjacent and flows into the sun-filled family room overlooking the verdant backyard, pool and spa. The den, currently used as an artists' studio, boasts walls of windows looking out over one of the home's two bamboo groves, affording views while maintaining a sense of privacy.
The kitchen, replete with Corian countertops resembling honed granite, offers a breakfast nook which overlooks the outdoor patio. Three bedrooms and two updated bathrooms sit on a separate wing. The two guest rooms share a marvelous glass-tiled shower, while the Master suite offers a glass-tiled fireplace, bath and separate dressing area.
The home's 547 square foot (taped) lower level, added in 1960 by Norwood & DeLonge, serves as a guest suite with a bonus room, three-quarter bath, and large adjacent laundry/storage room.
This stunning home has been lovingly maintained and curated for the last twenty-plus years by its artist-in-residence owners, whose thoughtful touches and colorful accents add to the home's unique vibe and appeal.
Originally built in 1955 by Norwood & DeLong. Permits show they were also involved in the conversion of the garage to a bonus room and addition of the carport in 1960.
