A Mid-Century Masterpiece

Wednesday, June 05, 2013 | Category: Designers, Home Exteriors, Website News

The other day I came across this mid-century masterpiece of a home on California Home & Design. The house is located in Pasadena, CA and currently listed for sale at $1.695 million. It was designed by architect Arthur Swab for his own use in 1959.
