My heart skipped when I first entered to find this preserved 1952 Post and Beam home on a small quiet street near the top of Altadena. The exposed wood ceilings, walls of glass, and even the original counters still in place – so exciting! Then the heirs casually produced the original plans from Kemper Nomland - what a find!!!!
Kemper and his father had designed the only Case Study home in Pasadena just back in 1947. Kemper Nomland Jr. then built his own home in Mt. Washington in 1950 and then went on to design “at least a dozen homes”, as stated in his LA Times obituary.
That one family lived and thrived in this home for decades is a testament to the elegance of Nomland’s design. The beautiful mountain vista is so thoroughly enjoyed throughout this sublime three bedroom and two bath work of art. The family only hopes that a very fortunate Buyer will also thrive here for many years to come.
