875 Laguna Road Pasadena, CA 91105 3 BD/ 2 BA $1,495,000
This distinguished, 1955, post and beam residence is one of four designed and built by J. W. Putnam on San Rafael’s prestigious Laguna Road. Set on a nearly 19,000 square foot lot, the steel base structure graciously spans a flowing creek bed (with fish!) that stems from nearby Johnston Lake, and leads to an intimate rear yard gently nestled among verdant and private woodlands.
Shaded by California oaks, the unique mid-century post and beam Bridge House was carefully designed to take advantage of its Arroyo setting. The rectilinear geometry of the structure is a perfect counterpoint to the nearly half-acre of natural California woodlands which embrace it.
An open floor plan and sliding glass doors welcome in abundant natural light and incorporates the indoors and out. The step-down living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, raised hearth fireplace and has been freshly painted.
