This timelessly stylish house is located in the ritzy neighborhood near Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, near Linda Vista Avenue, and was designed by the Pasadena firm Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury, which designed several other houses in the area.
Built in 1918, the four-bedroom estate sits on a 13,220-square-foot lot with mature avocado trees, and it has some cool touches, both modern and vintage.
The main residence has been updated, and includes central air conditioning and heating, plus a “robust” earthquake retrofit. The house holds a hidden wet bar, two fireplaces and a nearly 1,000-square-foot basement. In a sign of the times, the garage has a Tesla recharging station and even boasts its own bathroom.
There’s also a renovated one-bedroom guest house with its own kitchen and bathroom.
The property has been in the same family for more than 50 years. It’s now listed for $1.95 million.
