This beautiful home built in 1926 has retained all the charm and many of the architectural details of the original build. Original hardwood floors, arched windows, doorways and interior nooks are all there. Present as well are original built-ins, handcrafted in 1926 – one built-in is a charming fold-down writing desk.
Two large bedrooms and a single full bathroom are well placed within the 1,102 square feet of living space. The home sits towards the rear of a 5,756 square foot lot.
The kitchen has been recently remodeled with taste and a nod to the past. There is also a nice sitting area in the kitchen for relaxing with a cup of coffee or a snack.
Outside is a tranquil patio with Saltillo tiles which carry the Mediterranean theme of the house architecture. In addition there is a shaded pergola and sitting area surrounded by bamboo and a mature trumpet vine.
On the subject of landscaping, the front yard is a horticultural masterwork. The drought tolerant landscape includes cacti and succulents which have been growing for decades. Many of these specimen plants are rare and seldom seen in the San Gabriel Valley.
My clients, Kira and Tyler, immediately fell in love with the location on a tranquil street, and of course the front of the home with its broad lot and amazing curb appeal. The buyers wanted to live near family and friends in South Pasadena – so the location is ideal.
A strong offer after a round of counter-offers by the sellers secured the home for Kira and Tyler. The final selling price was $1,000,280. Congratulations to Kira and Tyler on their new home! If you need help buying or selling a home in South Pasadena or one of the areas close by, reach out anytime.
