Built in 1929, this Storybook-style duplex in Pasadena is in need of a fairy godmother (or father). Located at 1497 East Maple Street, the turreted residence contains two one-bedroom, one-bath units within its 1,532 square feet.
While the duplex’s kitchens and bathrooms have seen some unfortunate remuddling, there’s still plenty of vintage charm left. Character features include oak floors, barrel ceilings, decorative fireplaces, and wood-framed casement windows.
On a 5,998-square-foot lot with a detached two-car garage, the property is listed with Jackie Winter of Compass at an asking price of $749,000. Open house is scheduled for 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday.
