Among the most architecturally significant estates in Pasadena history, 1100 Paso Alto offers the rare opportunity to own dual residential masterpieces designed by two of Southern California’s most iconic architects. Capturing unparalleled views that encompass the Rose Bowl, San Gabriel Valley, Downtown L.A. and the Pacific Ocean, the ultra-private property atop the Linda Vista hills features one residence custom-designed by modernist pioneer A. Quincy Jones, and one by mid-century visionary Thornton Ladd.
