This handsome Craftsman in Pasadena was built in 1906, and, while it has been significantly updated in the 111 years since then, it still has plenty of period style.
Featuring five bedrooms and three bathrooms spread across a main residence and a guest house, the home has a total of 2,932 square feet of living space. It opens to a living room with wide windows, beamed ceilings, and a dramatic brick fireplace.
A formal dining room boasts wood paneling, shelving, and a built-in buffet, and a small reading area has bench seating and a built-in desk. Other interior features include hardwood flooring throughout the first level, an updated kitchen, and a breakfast nook with built-in seating.
The house sits on an 8,840-square-foot lot with a large front lawn, a spacious wraparound porch complete with a swing, and a pleasant, trellis-shaded back patio. There’s also a detached two-car garage, and the two-bedroom guest house adds some charm (and potential income) with its own living room and a cozy kitchen.
On the market for the first time in nearly two decades (it last sold in 1998 for $655,000), the home is listed with an asking price of $1.875 million.
