Property Description

Set in the middle of the renowned “Bungalow Heaven Historic District” of Pasadena, this storybook stunner is exquisitely simple yet surprisingly sophisticated. A full earthquake retrofit and foundation repair has enhanced the structural safety of this 1922 Craftsman charmer. Energy efficiency has been increased by the addition of a radiant heat barrier, insulation and a whole house fan which provides an alternative to the split ductless combined A/C and heater system. While the home is compact, no space is wasted and there is a place for everything. Original features include hardwood floors, built-in buffet and bookcases, moldings, windows and a claw foot tub. The attached garage is currently used as a bedroom/den. Anchored by a herringbone patterned brick patio, the yard is lushly landscaped and offers several options for outdoor living and entertaining. Take a picnic to the neighborhood park just across the street. Live the American dream in this idyllic, historic enclave where you are close to Old Town, Lake Avenue, and the Gold Line. Welcome home!
