Every room in this Pasadena Spanish-style is a statement maker.
The show starts in the foyer—where a curving magnesite staircase is inlaid with decorative tiles and lined with a wrought iron railing—and continues in the adjoining living room, which is accented by pitched ceilings with exposed beams, a brick fireplace, and arched entryways.
The kitchen, with its blue cabinets and copper farm sink topped by a rounded window, and the dining room, which opens via French doors to the terraced backyard, don’t take an intermission.
All in all, the pretty 1930s residence measures 1,913 square feet and contains three bedrooms and two bathrooms. Populated with succulents and cacti, the Pasadena property spans 6,729 square feet, enough room for a hot tub, built-in barbecue, and spaces for outdoor entertaining.
Last sold in 2008 for $1.07 million, 450 Cherry Drive is listed with Lauren Reichenberg at Compass at an asking price of $1.349 million.
