First time on the market, The Kubly House, 1965. This rare Pasadena Craig Ellwood home is the epitome of mid century modern design. Ellwood was known for his detailed minimalist buildings and larger-than-life personality. Don and Sally Kubly were intrigued by all Ellwood had to offer and commissioned him to design a home for their growing family. While many of the architects’ projects utilized steel construction, Ellwood chose to utilize wood on this project. The glass-walled box boasts classic post and beam construction while providing a uniquely visceral experience.
The horizontal oriented pavilion-style residence rises out of a grove of grand old eucalyptus trees. The lush verdant landscape provides both shade and privacy for the property. A classic mid century design incorporating storage and a functional fireplace becomes the focal point for the living room.
