Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #383, this singular Craftsman in Eagle Rock was designed and built by self-taught architect and artist Howard Arden Edwards for himself and his family in 1910.
A teacher of stage design and scenic art for Pomona College and the Pasadena Playhouse, Edwards imbued his two-bedroom, one-bath residence with delightful theatrical flourishes, such as stenciled paintings on its beams, ceilings, and walls.
Other outstanding features include built-in bookshelves, seating, and cabinetry, hardwood floors, wood-frame windows, iron-accented doors, two stone fireplaces, and a detached, two-car garage.
Located on a 6,722-square-foot lot a few blocks west of the Eagle Rock Recreation Center, the Mills Act-designated property is listed with an asking price of $699,000. Open house is scheduled Tuesday and Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m and Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.
