Among the six stops on Pasadena Heritage's Spring Home Tour are two architect designed Mid-Century homes with beautiful gardens that complement the architecture.
The W. Parker Lyon House
Designed by Thornton Ladd, 1948
The W. Parker Lyon House, is an extraordinary example of Mid-Century architecture, with attention paid to every detail and strong emphasis on the connection between interior and exterior spaces. The current homeowners commissioned most of the current landscaping which beautifully frames the striking house and its many levels.
The Mulvihill House
Designed by Harwell Hamilton Harris, 1949
Harwell Hamilton Harris collaborated with the current owners of the Mulvihill House to make suggestions for restoration and to explain his original design. He also consulted with the owner John Tillman Lyle on his 1984 studio. Lyle was the principal architect for the Lyle Center for Regenerative Studies at Cal Poly Pomona and authored books on regenerative landscape which will be seen at his home in neighboring Sierra Madre.
