This 1892 Victorian sits just off of Pasadena’s Millionaire’s Row, a fashionable stretch of Orange Grove where the super-wealthy built their mansions at the turn of the 20th century. (The Busches of Anheuser-Busch and the maker of Wrigley’s gum had grand estates here.)
The house has been expanded and also restored; holdovers from the earliest days of the house abound. The house has original pocket doors, pine wood floors, and many of its original windows. The hardware in the house is all either "original, restored, or replicated."
The first floor holds a parlor, formal dining room, library, and the updated kitchen with high-end appliances. The interiors are a little grandma at present, but they don’t obscure the great details of the house, like its high ceilings and wood moldings.
The master bedroom—one of five in the house—is upstairs. The bathrooms are large and probably in need of an update. (Note the glass blocks on one of the shower enclosures.)
The residence has a both front and a back porch, with the latter overlooking a pool and spa. The property totals almost one-third of an acre. It’s listed for $2.595 million.
