Pasadena’s Grand Avenue more than lives up to its name, lined as it is with impressive residences produced by the likes of Charles and Henry Greene, Elmer Grey, Myron Hunt, and Reginald D. Johnson.

The architecturally blessed street contains three homes designed by the team of Seymour Locke and Jasper Preston, including this splendid Shingle-style that just hit the market.

Located at 325 South Grand along the eastern bank of the Arroyo Seco, the two-story home was built in 1895, and looks to have been treated quite well over the years. Measuring 5,908 square feet, it’s got five bedrooms (one of which is turreted), and four baths.

Notable interior features include hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, detailed moldings, French doors, a semi-circular breakfast room with glass roof, elaborate woodwork, built-in furniture, stained glass, and beautiful period-style tile.

The .63-acre property’s grounds are equally lovely, boasting arroyo stone walls, a gazebo, a rose garden, and a wine-producing vineyard.

Last sold in 2003 for $2.325 million, the home is now asking $2.8 million. An open house is scheduled Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m. Gretchen B. Seager of Sotheby’s has the listing.
