Property Description

Take a perfectly remodeled California Bungalow with Arts and Crafts detail situated on a deep lot, place it on one of Pasadena’s most beautiful streets with extra wide sidewalks on both sides, retro streetlights and stately camphor trees and you have the perfect recipe for quintessential Southern California living. The harmonious selection of color adorning this home blends perfectly with the meticulously landscaped front yard anchored by a golden maple tree.

Step up to the front porch with exposed rafter tails and beams under deep roof eaves, then through the custom front door with sidelites to the open living space. A tiled fireplace anchors one side of the room while on the other is a dining area featuring a beautiful Tiffany chandelier. The room is enhanced with hardwood floors, authentic chair railing, multi-pane wood framed windows shaded by narrow-slat plantation shutters, and plenty of built-ins including desk, drawers, glass front cabinets, and buffet.

The charming kitchen offers Shaker-style wood cabinets, farmhouse porcelain double sink with a bay window, Corian counters with custom tile backsplash, recessed lights, under cabinet lighting, and stainless steel appliances including a Viking Pro 4 burner plus griddle stove. The kitchen also offers an adjacent informal dining area with built in bench for efficient seating, pantry cupboards, stylish brushed nickel light sconces, and a huge window with a half moon window above, a style that is repeated throughout the house. Continue on to the family room with handsome trey ceiling, recessed lights and sliding glass door into the backyard. Down the hallway are two of the three bedrooms, each with ample closet space. The larger of the two has recessed lights, trey ceiling, and access to the backyard. The full bathroom has two sinks with tile counters and an extra deep soaking tub under an impressive wall of windows allowing in natural light yet retaining privacy with a protective surrounding fence. Upstairs is a treasure of a master bedroom suite with large casement windows on every side, allowing peaceful views of the San Gabriel mountains. The spacious room boasts a soaring ceiling with a prominent wrought iron chandelier, bamboo flooring, two closets each with professional organizer shelves, and two half moon windows. The full bathroom has a skylight, pedestal sink, tile floor and a shower over tub with rain forest shower head. A convenient laundry room with skylight and soaking sink is also accessible from the master suite.

The fully fenced, professionally landscaped backyard is shaded by a majestic oak tree over a brick patio area perfect for entertaining. The large flat grassy area is surrounded by trees such as Japanese maple, gingkos and kumquat and includes a fort-style play structure complete with climbing wall and slide.

The 2-car extra large detached garage sits behind a custom built automatic redwood driveway gate and features a wall of storage cabinets and storage loft. Behind the garage is an additional office/bedroom with attractive high ceiling, ceiling fan and retractable screen door.

This home includes gutters, copper plumbing, 200 amp electric main panel, Nest thermostat, whole house security system, washer and dryer and automatic sprinklers. The walkability factor is spectacular: Metro stop, Starbucks, retail, Eaton Canyon Park and Victory Park. Also close to freeway and Old Town. This is the perfect home for Pasadena. Live it up!
