Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

1695 Poppy Peak Drive in Pasadena


The Thomson Residence, circa 1957, designed by Buff, Straub & Hensman.

This widely published home is an important example of the architects’ early post and beam work.

The soaring 2 story glass and wood structure is located in the Poppy Peak Historic District in the San Rafael Hills of Pasadena and offers stunning San Gabriel Mountain and City views.

The kitchen features Sub-Zero refrigerator and Miele appliances.

Virtually every surface was restored or rebuilt to exacting detail. All new systems, including plumbing, electrical, roof and zoned HVAC.

The City of Pasadena bestowed the 2012 Preservation Award to the home for its museum quality restoration (2011-2012).

Expansive decks and patios offer gracious indoor to outdoor flow.

This spectacular jewel of a home also offers Mills Act tax savings for its next lucky owner.
