This welcoming Craftsman sits in Pasadena’s landmarked Garfield Heights district, a cluster of homes north of Old Town built in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The residence here was constructed in 1912, when Arts and Crafts-style bungalows were quickly springing up across Southern California. The well-maintained home has a classic covered front porch, with stone supports elevating the overhanging gable.
Inside, four bedrooms and two bathrooms are spread across 1,911 square feet of floor space. The home boasts original wood floors and some lovely built-ins, including bench seating beside the living room fireplace and a dining room buffet.
The kitchen has recently been remodeled and boasts fresh countertops and appliances, along with a large center island. The master bedroom features recessed lighting and an updated en-suite bathroom, but older casement windows remain in place.
The home sits on a 7,090-square-foot lot with a grassy backyard and a two-car garage that currently serves as a recording studio. 981 Worcester Avenue is asking $999,000.
