Following a thoughtful restoration, this modern gem by noted architect Albert Frey is ready for a discerning buyer looking to purchase a rare, International Style landmark. Historic integrity and authenticity find balance with newer upgrades: pool & spa with wireless controls, 200amp service, energy efficient laminated-glass doors and windows and new central heat/AC in 2018. An outdoor shower and covered entertaining space are great! Want to add a casita? The 10,000sf lot – on fee land you own – has sweet mountain views throughout and offers great expansion possibilities. Located in famed Movie Colony East – neighboring million-dollar homes – its Class 1 historic designation makes it eligible for Mills Act property tax savings. Frey's only tract of single-family homes, Bel Vista stands in tribute to his mentor, Le Corbusier. Designated Historic Site #100 and listed as one of the City's 100 most important buildings, it’s a rare example of early modern architecture in Palm Springs and important to its architectural fabric. Published many times and photographed by Julius Shulman, Bel Vista’s design features an abundance of windows and doors in common and private spaces creating a heightened sense of indoor/outdoor living. It’s a light and bright showplace. Restored bathrooms to period detail, beautiful polished concrete and cork floors and an original color palette bring its period of significance to life. Its contribution to the architectural legacy of Palm Springs is unique.

Atop the large two-story garage is an equally special 1-bedroom and 1-bath guest residence featuring treetop and mountain views and an artfully renovated kitchen and bath. Originally owned by George and Nellie Hoffman, the same family has lovingly cared for this unique estate for more than 50 years. Fronted by a grand formal porch, the remarkable home is replete with wonderful period details throughout. The main house features a large master suite, updated systems, central heat/AC, a robust EQ retrofit, a renovated kitchen, wonderful hardwood floors, two fireplaces, mountain views, a large 985sf basement and let's not forget a few “hidden” gems built into its architecture. The home’s rich past and authenticity are apparent in every room and reflect a quality and history that makes Pasadena such a special place to live. The over-sized garage features a great workspace, its own bathroom and a Tesla recharging station. Its park like, verdant grounds still nurture some of The Ranch's original avocado trees. The property may be eligible for Mills Act and its substantial tax savings. Don't miss this once in a lifetime opportunity to own one of Pasadena's most important historic properties.
