This elegant 1,656-square-foot bungalow was built in 1912, but it hasn’t always been situated at its present location in northern Pasadena. Per the listing, the home was moved from a lot around the Caltech campus in 1994.
As the university’s footprint expanded during the 1980s and ’90s, school officials began giving away historic homes to those willing to move them.
Now settled on a 10,539-square-foot lot, the two-bedroom home is surrounded by a well-manicured front lawn, a roomy backyard, and a detached two-car garage. A porch swing on the front porch and a seating nook on a side porch seem like good places to enjoy the scenery.
On the interior, features include beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and built-in shelving and seating. The master bathroom is outfitted with a tile floor, yellow and black tile walls, and a vintage clawfoot tub.
Last sold in 2006 for $745,000, the house has been updated with a new paint job. It’s now asking $798,000.
