Property Remarks

Beautiful bungalow in the heart of Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena's first landmark district, which Sunset Magazine called the Best Neighborhood in the West in 2002. Built by noted architect, Irving Speicher, in 1917, the house exudes curb appeal with a welcoming large front porch and professionally installed drought-tolerant landscaping. Abundant natural light shines through this home, which is filled with charm and character balanced with today's conveniences. The main living space features hwd floors, period-appropriate light fixtures, and a dining room with a built-in hutch. The spacious eat-in kitchen offers ample counter space and cabinets and, stainless steel appliances. The home's 4 spacious bedrooms (one usable as an office) include a large master bedroom that was recently renovated with architectural-salvage doors, new lighting, and newly installed carpeting. All 3 bathrooms perfectly blend vintage style with modern amenities. Enjoy the gorgeous So. Cal weather form the large backyard, whose custom patio, grassy lawn and mature plants are perfect for outside living. The home sits close to the neighborhood McDonald Park on a tree-lined street. This close-knit neighborhood is ready to welcome you home.
