Even if this house weren’t painted red, it would be hard to miss. Located in Pasadena’s Madison Heights neighborhood, near the end of the 110 freeway, the stately and striking Dutch Colonial Revival is a well-preserved residence in a quiet neighborhood of tree-lined streets.
Built in 1912, the house contains some fabulous original details, including gleaming hardwood floors, pocket doors and cabinets fronted with leaded glass, custom wainscoting, and a Batchelder-tiled fireplace in a cozy and inviting living room. (Batchelder was a Pasadena-based Craftsman known today for his tilework.)
The dwelling is not without its updates, of course. The kitchen has been remodeled to include custom cabinets and granite counters, and the house’s 2.5 bathrooms also appear very modern, especially in the master bedroom’s en-suite bath.
The five-bedroom residence measures an airy 3,160 square feet. Last sold in 2009 for $1.15 million, it’s now listed for $2.08 million.
