Welcome to this 1912 Craftsman treasure located in the heart of Bungalow Heaven, one of Pasadena's most idyllic and architecturally significant neighborhoods. The gorgeous property is an architectural beauty and offers a significant tax savings for the buyer through the Mills Act. The three bedroom, two bath 1,320 square foot home has been painstakingly restored and is a tribute to the bygone artisanship of this sought-after style. You enter the residence via a lovely porch that sits under wide eaves and is slightly raised to offer views of the tree lined street as well as enhanced privacy. Once you step inside the tall front door, you will notice magnificent details including rich wood Maple floors, a box beam ceiling, hand-crafted built-ins, elegant picture or plate rails on the dark wainscoting, retractable roller screens, period hardware and fixtures, as well as one of the most stunning, decorative, cast stone fireplaces in town that has a stately relief showcasing the Santa Barbara Mission. In addition, the house has remodeled baths as well as a light and bright, renovated kitchen with an apron front sink, a gleaming antique stove and custom cabinetry that marries the artistry of the era with all the modern amenities so desired today. The property exudes curb appeal and is sited on an expansive 8,295 square foot lot that has been lovingly landscaped using primarily California native plants. The deep, shaded yard with numerous seating areas offers a multitude of spaces for entertaining, dining or, simply, quiet reflection beneath the old-growth trees. At the back of the parcel, there is also a spacious, two-car garage, with a bonus workshop, that allows for unlimited possibilities. This is a truly unique opportunity to own a beautiful piece of history while celebrating the best of our fair city's architectural heritage.
