New to the market, this classic California bungalow and modern art studio by Peter Tolkin, A.I.A.
According to the listing remarks, today’s casual open plan program, which characterizes modern California living and convenience, did not begin with the modern movement, but rather during the earlier Craftsman boom. The book Bungalows by Henry Saylor, published in 1911, celebrated the efficiency, practical use of space, and the open floor plan. This was the genesis of this 1912 classic craftsman bungalow.
Built in 1912, the residence has retained a significant portion of its historic fabric.
Set within award-winning gardens, the two-bedroom, two-bath home features light and open interiors that enhance the modernism of the open plan.
Kitchen and bath have been tastefully updated.
The back garden invites casual entertaining, and incorporates the original craftsman garage, and a detached artist’s studio constructed of egalitarian materials exemplifies Tolkin’s award-winning creativeness.
This is a great example of period Craftsman in Pasadena!
