1161 ROMNEY DRIVE, PASADENA | $4,500,000 | 4 BD | 4 BA
When we think post and beam, Buff and Hensman are usually the first to come to mind. Here’s a fine example from them in Pasadena.
The Saltman Residence, 1962. Built by Buff and Hensman and thoughtfully restored and updated by the current owners this quintessential California home has all the character of a Post and Beam with today’s modern conveniences.
After ascending the long, gated driveway you’ll be greeted by a gracious entry, replete with a koi pond, and immediately be taken with walls of glass looking out to your refreshing saltwater pool. The beautiful kitchen features custom walnut cabinetry, Caesar stone island and counters, a Wolf Stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator.
The spacious primary suite has dual closets, heated bathroom floors and enviable bathtub views! You’ll appreciate 3 additional bedrooms as well as a TV room added by Buff and Hensman. The step-down living room harkens back to a time when people enjoyed relaxing, visiting, and talking with one another.
Light and bright with 20+ skylights updates also include an insulated roof, dual paned windows, solar heating for the pool, high velocity HVAC with 3 zones and a Tesla charger. This is an entertainer’s dream home with incredible indoor/outdoor flow, Sonos sound system with Niles speakers, a built-in Lynx’s BBQ, lovely hillside views and a wonderful feeling of privacy.
With attention to detail and respect for the original architecture the owners have created a comfortable peaceful refuge in a convenient easy location. A rare pedigree offering with elegant beauty. Pasadena Buff and Hensman the Saltman Residence
