Rare 3 bedroom condo in the heart of South Pasadena. Close to everything with the best views of Garfield Park! Imagine living right next to Garfield Park with a second floor view of the park from your private balcony.
This is the one. It’s a large corner unit – 3 bedrooms with 2 baths, 1,376 square feet of living space, secure underground parking for 2 cars. Recently remodeled with absolutely high quality flooring, counters, cabinets and a primary suite with enormous closet space. It’s buffered from the other units with just one shared wall. There are large picture windows looking out over Garfield Park and a great view balcony with access from the primary bedroom, the main living area, and the kitchen/dining area. Also – because this is a corner unit you get windows on two sides!
Additionally the building has undergone extensive and comprehensive remodeling and refurbishment in the recent past. Just a few examples – all of the common spaces had the interiors remodeled including brand new mailboxes for residents. The entire building exterior was updated and all the windows and sliding glass doors have been replaced with top-of-the-line Milgard dual pane windows. At the same time all of the balconies on the upper two floors were reinforced.
The unit itself is spectacular and large – however the location is truly superb. This is absolutely the most walkable condo in South Pasadena. This condo is just ½ mile to Marengo Elementary School and South Pasadena Middle School and just ¾ mile to the High School. Imagine walking your kids to school everyday!
