Custom in 1967, this barn-meets-barn Dutch-like home spreads across a lot of lot over in Pasadena. An early example of an upscale Kickerillo number, the listing’s interior finishes offer cavernous ceilings — some of them given an extra bit of zip by some vibrant plaid wallpaper (above) — and “built-ins galore,” including a handy off-the-den pre-SodaStream soda fountain bar (at right). The super-sized property listed last month with an asking price of $379,210.
Other than a pair of ornamental crape myrtles in sculpted garden pods near the home, the front lot is all circular driveway and groomed lawn.

Midtone brick walls anchor each end of the family room, which has a high-hipped ceiling with exposed ribs. The 24-ft.-by-20-ft. room looks over the back yard through a large bay window on its flank.

Also off the kitchen is this laundry-craft-sewing room, which has access to the yard and the home’s sneaky back staircase:
Meanwhile, the main staircase at the back of the foyer has a curving, antiqued iron grille railing:
All of the bedrooms — there are 5 or 6 of them — and many of bathrooms are upstairs. Here’s the florid master suite:
Over the 3-car garage, this game room sprawls beneath a shape-shifting ceiling:
Yardage? About 30,000 sq. ft. The back of the property, located one off the cul-de-sac turnaround, comes with shade:
