The Ennis House~ Built in 1955 by notable architect, F. Lyman Ennis, known for his works in Pasadena. This mid-century post and beam time capsule has been completely restored with contemporary luxuries while respectfully preserving the original design. The outdoors have been pulled in with walls of glass, earthy elements, and sweeping views in every direction from the San Gabriel Mountains, The Rose Bowl, DTLA’s skyline, Catalina Island, and everything in between. The open concept flows seamlessly from room to room. The living room steps down from the entry and is complemented with wood-beamed ceilings, period lighting, a stone-stacked fireplace, and slate flooring. The ”industrial-meets- gourmet-chef” kitchen is appointed with stainless steel countertops, aluminum cabinets, and a Carrera marble prep and eating area. The professional-grade appliances include a Gaggeneau oven and range, a Fisher Paykel dishwasher, and Sub Zero refrigerator/freezer drawers. A large picture window overlooks a chic entertainer’s deck. The pool and spa are built into the hillside and offer twilight city views. This property evokes emotion. Once you enter the home, you immediately feel the presence of the spectacular, jaw-dropping views of LA and beyond. Ennis, whose signature design style was ”to give a room spaciousness far in excess of its actual dimensions” was unmistakably used here. A cool and modern office is perfectly positioned near the entrance with a window designed to view approaching guests. Two equal-sized bedrooms line the south wall taking full advantage of the stunning backdrop of Annandale’s lush golf course below and a variety of trees which lends itself to ‘tree-house’ living. The bathrooms are state of the art and like no other. Unique stainless-steel fixtures, a wall-less walk-in shower, an aluminum soaking tub, skylights, and wall-to-floor richly colored slate tiles are used in a way that precedes the average design. The primary bedroom is serene and peaceful with a neatly designed, walk-in closet and a French door to wrap-around aluminum deck. The room seems to float in the clouds in and looks out to calming Eucalyptus trees below. The neighboring vacant lot, with 9,048 sqft. of open land is included in the sale. This is a once-in-a-lifetime masterpiece surrounded by opportunity, architectural significance, history, and the Pasadena community. An unforgettable experience with a modern museum-like atmosphere complemented by innovative design.
