Step back in time into this wonderful and impressive historic home in Pasadena. Built in 1922, but with extensive renovation both inside and outside the home, this welcoming and large 4 bedroom, 3 and half bathroom Italian Revival home is located in the wonderful Historic Highlands Landmark District of Pasadena.

You enter the home by following the grand lighted steps from the street to a wide and welcoming front porch silhouetted by beautiful white rose bushes and two white birch trees. You’ll find welcoming rocking chairs that just might keep you from entering the home. But once inside, you’ll be transported back in time to the Pasadena of yesterday with modern day conveniences.

The foyer with backset French doors lead you to either the grand staircase upstairs or proceed left to the formal living room or right to the family room. Let’s start with the formal living room. Enter the room and you are immediately drawn to the large mantle and beautiful gas fireplace with period Batchelder tile surround. Batchelder was a famous tile maker from the early 20’s in Pasadena and many period homes are graced with his fine work. The room features a grand piano and sophisticated seating perfect for adult conversation, reading or simply a peaceful respite from your hectic day.

The formal living room leads to a stunning and formal dining room with wonderfully large windows on the side with views of a mature camphor tree and camellia bushes. A simply gorgeous crystal chandelier hangs over the impressive oval wood table that seats 8 in seating that is both elegant and comfortable. The vintage Asian influenced hutch with beveled glass is the perfect accent to the room. Enjoy fine dining or entertaining your family and friends in this room that has French doors leading to your private outdoor oasis.

Step outside onto the brick patio with impressive outdoor, wood burning fireplace with tile surround that matches the Batchelder tile of the living room and you might not want to go back inside. Take a seat in one of the wicker chairs in front of the fire, or perhaps have your meal at the wrought iron dining room table with glass top. Your outdoor kitchen, complete with large stainless steel BBQ hooked up to the gas line and refrigerator make outdoor entertaining a breeze.

Step up to the recently remodeled and heated salt water pool and spa and enjoy a swim or simply relax in one of many comfortable chairs or chaise lounge chairs poolside. Off the garage to the side of the pool is a bathroom so you do not need to enter the house when you are spending your time outside.

Covering nearly .32 acres the grounds are beautifully landscaped and accented with lighting in both the front and rear yards. The home has a large grassy yard beyond the pool surround by a rose garden and several fruit trees including lemon, avocado, Meyer lemon, and more.

You can reenter the home through the French doors to the dining room or through the side door that leads to the kitchen. Before the kitchen there is a full bathroom with shower and toilet. To the left is the closed laundry room complete with 2012 new and large front loading washer and dryer.

The updated kitchen with new stainless steel appliances and marble counter tops is stocked with everything you need for cooking. Off the kitchen are both a butlery’s pantry with sink and marble tile and an eat-in kitchen area with large, six seat dining table perfect for having your casual meals or for playing cards/board games at night.

Off the eat-in kitchen area is the casual living room area with comfy sofa; two candy striped club chairs and a large 50 in flat screen TV with DVR. Watch a movie or just relax in comfort in this welcoming room perfect for relaxation.

Head upstairs to four (4) generously proportioned bedrooms and two (2) 2012 new bathrooms. The master bedroom has an in suite bathroom with rain shower and heated lighting for those cool mornings in the winter. The master bedroom has an eastern king bed, the other three have queen mattresses. Each of the four bedrooms include their own 32” flat screen TV, two bathrobes, iron, ironing board, fan. The north facing bedroom has its own terrace with absolutely stunning views of the majestic San Gabriel mountains.

There is gated parking for at least three cars, however the driveway can easily accommodate five cars.

Other recent improvements to the home include dual Central Air conditioning systems, copper plumbing, earthquake retrofitting, and 200 amp Electrical panel.

The home is fully furnished and all linens and towels are provided for your use. All guests are welcomed to the home with a bottle of red and white wine and chocolates. We also offer a guest information book with our personal recommendations for restaurants in Pasadena and the surrounding area.

Thanks for visiting. We know you’ll love staying at our home as much as we do.

Great house and experience

  • 5 of 5

The house is wonderful and has good character. Russ was very responsive and flexible when we ran into a snafu on our end. I really appreciated it. Our family loved the house and the pool. Easy location for us to get to everywhere we needed to.

Beautiful Pasadena Home

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as described. We had a group of eight stay for New Years Weekend and used the home as our base Southern California attractions and for attending the Rose Bowl Parade. The home is beautiful from top to bottom. Despite rain and cool weather we made the most of the backyard pool, spa and fireplace which were perfect for both the adults and kids. All four bedrooms were spacious and offered adequate privacy. The kitchen is well equipped and the dining room, living room and family room were all ideal to relax and enjoy great time together as a group. Finally, the owner was very accommodating and easy to work with from start to finish.
