The 3,000 square foot ranch style home near Pasadena was originally built in 1950. The couple was ready for a complete interior and exterior renovation to create a modern backdrop for their busy working lives and yet retain the spirit of the original mid-century design. Landscape work included an inviting water feature in the new front entry courtyard to draw visitors to the secluded front entry. The back garden was improved by reducing the lawn area in favor of drought-tolerant plantings, incorporating the existing swimming pool into the overall space, and introducing an alley of trees, a bocce ball court and shady seating areas. The renovated house and gardens were featured in the 2011 Pasadena ASID Home and Kitchen tour to popular acclaim and continue to delight the owners.
