Home of the Week: One of Pasadena’s most iconic estates: a Tudor masterpiece
Set far back behind gates on immense, secluded grounds in Pasadena’s prestigious Langham neighborhood, this light-filled English Tudor Revival was designed and built in 1915 by the eminent firm of Hudson & Munsell. In addition to their residential work, the firm was responsible for a number of noted public buildings, including the landmark domed 1913 Beaux Arts Natural History Museum building in Exposition Park.

Occupying over 1.7 landscaped acres surrounded by mature trees, the home comprises over 11,000 square feet and three stories of elegant living space, including eight bedrooms and eight baths. 

Every rich detail has been meticulously maintained, from the Philippine mahogany, red gum and walnut paneling, French doors and coffered ceilings to the Batchelder like tiled fireplaces and original wood frame windows and hardware. Sensitive updates to the gourmet kitchen, baths and infrastructure (including newer copper plumbing, electrical, roof, and mechanical systems) have gracefully drawn the home into the present day.

This is a rare opportunity to own one of Pasadena’s most illustrious estates – exceedingly removed and private, yet moments from The Huntington Library and Old Pasadena.

The expansive residence at 1365 South Los Robles Avenue has been listed by Bradley A. Mohr and Susan Mohr for $6,950,000.
