This charming 1913 Craftsman Bungalow will please any historic home lover with its authentic details. The gable roofs, traditional front porch, overhanging eaves, exposed rafter tails, built-in cabinets, hardwood floors, side opening casement windows, and picture rails all reflect the beautiful and unique Craftsman style. The home was remodeled and expanded in 2004 with no expense spared, providing the owner with a new expansive gourmet kitchen and master bedroom suite. The curb appeal is augmented by the professionally landscaped front yard with a river rock wall gently winding around the front, and a newer Craftsman-style wood driveway gate. The inviting living room features an ornamental fireplace, crown & baseboard molding, ceiling fan and built-in glass-front cabinets. The adjacent formal dining room with built-in buffet leads straight into the spacious kitchen offering granite counters, cherry custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, recessed lights, a computer work station, an island with breakfast bar for four, a bay window, and French doors that open out onto the wood entertainment deck and backyard. A laundry alcove and half bathroom are conveniently located next to the kitchen. The front bedroom has a walk in closet and is currently used as a den. The cheery second bedroom has a corner full of windows and is next to a full bathroom with tile floors, tile walls and a pedestal sink. The oasis-like master bedroom in the rear of the house has recessed lights, hardwood floors, a Hunter ceiling fan, and French doors that open out onto the deck. The spacious full bathroom features a walk-in closet, granite counters, soaking tub with overhead shower, and a beautiful framed mirror. The fully enclosed, flat backyard with grassy play area also boasts a 2 car garage built in 2004 and a 199 square foot detached bonus room that can be an office, exercise room or studio. This delightful home includes a California basement, whole house security, central air/heat, ceiling fans, double pane wood frame windows in the addition, and partial upgraded electric. Situated in a quiet NE Pasadena neighborhood with sidewalks, mature shade trees and old style street lights, it is also conveniently located near shopping, freeways, San Gabriel mountain hiking trails, and one of the best ice cream shops in town.
