Renowned DJ and Songwriter for Britney Spears Lists Cool Midcentury Modern
Built in 1956, this midcentury modern in Pasadena has aged like a fine wine and is cooler than even. Owned by Grammy award-winning musician Christian Karlsson, who co-wrote and produced ‘Toxic’ by Britney Spears among other hits, the design of the home is right on key. The musician and his wife are only the third owners and now they’ve listed the gem for $3.4 million.
Also known as Bloodshy, Karlsson’s career reaches far beyond the 25 songs he has worked on for Britney Spears. The DJ and producer creates music within popular groups like Galantis, Bloodshy & Avant, Miike Snow, and more. His lengthy résume also features working on songs with more pop artists such as Madonna and Katy Perry. And this home he is selling seems like a perfect place to get creatively inspired.
Dating back almost 65 years, the modern is shiny and bright after a restoration by John Galbraith AIA. Redwood panels and walls of glass line the three-bedroom home, balancing brightness and warmth. The kitchen presents chef’s stainless appliances plus a marvelous breakfast bar and revived original mahogany cabinetry.
As well as the striking interiors, the home has tremendous 180-degree panoramic views. With the city dazzling in the distance, a sleek pool, and an extensive patio, the atmosphere for entertaining is utterly glamorous. In addition, a detached flex space can function as a game room, office space, or even a studio if another artist moves in.
Far from toxic, this home offers unique architecture, gorgeous views, and good vibes. Richard Yohon of Sotheby’s International Realty holds this listing with Konstatnine Valissarakos of Nourmand and Associates.
