Found among mature oaks, this 1955 Midcentury Modern residence rests above a flowing stream bed fed from Johnston Lake in Pasadena’s South Arroyo neighborhood. One of four area homes designed by J.W. Putnum, walls of glass and open interiors make for seamless transitions between indoor and outdoor spaces. A step-down living room centers on a wall fireplace, a design staple.
