1925 Character Charms NE Pasadena

Marketing remarks:

Lush landscaping embraces this 1925 double-gabled California bungalow with its center porch entrance, elegantly accented by graceful three-centered arches and simplified arts and crafts interior styling, crowned by its original Batchelder tile-framed fireplace.  Gleaming hardwood floors and creamy smooth curves where wall meets ceiling, arched room transitions, all invite you to step through the impressive original doorway, find something soft to curl up on, and grab a favorite book.  In another mood, glide through the large living room to a remodeled, open plan kitchen and family room, and through French doors to your outdoor gazebo-sheltered dining area, next to the Coy pond, and fire up the built-in barbeque in anticipation of your guests’ arrival.  Plenty of space for all of you on this colorfully landscaped 13,436 s.f. lot, product of a family with deep affection for gardens and their many elements, including abundant roses and a fountain.  Separate one bed, one bath addition offers opportunity for a spontaneous overnight, or long-term possibilities as office, studio, workshop.  The home preserves its original core with formal dining room and bathroom with preserved detailing, and celebrates additional comfort with its master bedroom, bath and walk-in closet remodel additions.  Gated tile-paved driveway and two car garage offer ample parking on this picturesque, tree lined street.  You won’t be disappointed!

Home is a 1920 dougble gabled, California bungalow, reinterpreted by a center porch entrance, elegantly accented by graceful 3-centered arched details (and wood shutters) with simplified arts and crafts interior styling accentuated by an original Batchelder tile-framed fireplace, definitely a bungalow painted to organically and simply sit amid the lush landscape.
