The Wynn Road cul-de-sac in Pasadena’s lovely Sierra Madre Villa neighborhood has been considered for Landmark District status where a cluster of homes designed by noted Pasadena architect Harold B. Zook, may be found. This home, built in 1955, is an exceptional example of Mid-Century design. Known for distinctive clean design, an emphasis on privacy, and insightful use of space and flow, Zook houses have been photographed by Julius Shulman, shown in modern home tours and featured in Arts and Architecture, House Beautiful and the Los Angeles Times. Zook, who began his career with Swiss-born Albert Frey, was one of the founding architects of Palm Springs, and established his own firm in Pasadena in 1948. In addition to his many residences, his commercial buildings included the iconic 1959 Saga Motor Hotel, a Pasadena Mid-Century landmark whose distinctive style embodies the golden age of motel design.
The owners of 1215 Wynn have made beautiful updates to the home while staying true to its original sleek, minimalist aesthetic. Set at the end of the cul-de-sac, the property is carefully sited with a focus on the stunning back yard, which looks across the pool to a panoramic view of the city below and canyon beyond. A lush, grassy landscape screened by trees wraps gracefully around the house. Raised planter beds are integrated into the pool area, and an array of seating areas and patios creates a variety of spaces for outdoor eating and entertaining. Inside the front door, the view sweeps down a marble tiled passageway to a living room ending in a full wall of glass. Throughout the open plan home, expanses of glass, including large windows, transom windows and sliding glass doors blend all rooms with the surrounding landscape, creating a feeling of indoor/outdoor living. In the master bedroom, a floor-to-ceiling glass wall opens to a private yard and patio. The master bath is highlighted by a dramatic slate tiled step-down shower/tub. Four bedrooms, each ensuite are grouped in one private wing, with a fifth bedroom and bathroom positioned on the other side of the home. Additionally, there is a paving stone motor court and a finished three car garage with built in storage.
