From the Agent: "Introducing the Alexman Residence by David Alexman, AIA/PhD. The USC-trained architect’s expertise in siting is well displayed in the home he built for his own family in Pasadena’s San Rafael Hills. It is only once you have arrived at the top of the courtyard that the cleverness of the architect’s design becomes fully evident. The home appears from the street as if backed directly into a steep hillside—obscured from view are the spacious yard, patio areas, and gardens behind it. The result is near total privacy, and the glass-walled modern house takes full advantage of it. Nearly all of the home’s south facade has unobstructed and distant views framed by mature eucalyptus trees. This home presents a rare opportunity in one of Pasadena’s finest and most picturesque neighborhoods."
