Midcentury Modern Home Designed by Jean G. Killion Shines in Pasadena

A midcentury modern home in Pasadena, CA, designed by the architect Jean G. Killion is now available for $1,548,000.

While she isn’t a household name, Killion designed the place for herself in 1954, while she was working as a project architect in the offices of the celebrated Richard Neutra and Robert Alexander from 1952-54, according to the co-listing agent Joey Kiralla, with Sotheby’s International Realty. 

He and his co-listing agent, Nathaniel Cole with Suprstructur, were compelled to research Killion’s pedigree after first setting eyes on her design.

“The house is so gorgeous and so striking, we knew it had to be somebody very, very talented,” Kiralla says. “It is known female architects at the time didn’t get credit for their work.”

He hopes to get the word out about Killion’s skills and achievements through this home, which she left as her legacy.

Hot Property: South Korean royals buy a Thousand Oaks palace

Lee, an entrepreneur who founded the VPN service Private Internet Access, is relatively new to the concept of royalty.

The “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”-style saga was detailed by the South China Morning Post.
