Located on Pasadena's North Raymond Avenue just east of Fair Oaks, this 1902 Craftsman was designed by Charles W. Buchanan, the prominent local architect of Scripps Hall (now the Pasadena Waldorf School) and the Reinway bungalow court, both of which are on the National Register of Historic Places. When last on the market one year ago, the 2,705-square-foot residence had fallen into pretty dire straits, but fortunately hadn't fallen past the point of no return. While some of its updates are likely to be met with a side-eye, the four-bedroom, two-bath house has been spruced up rather nicely overall. Per the listing, features include refinished hardwood floors throughout, a formal dining room, a library, a living room with gas fireplace, pocket doors, built-ins, French windows, a mother-in-law suite with separate entrance, a spacious front porch, an attached potting shed, and a California basement. Last sold for $542,000, the property is now listed with an asking price of $799,000.
