For Podley Properties
April 9, 2018
This charming two-bedroom, 1.5 bath home is a Pasadena “Golden Arrow Award” winner for its creative blend of river rock and stucco exterior, brick and slate landscaping and colorful, drought-resistant plants that display outstanding “curb appeal.” Built in the 1930’s, this vintage home comes with many upgrades including a six-foot deep “splash pool” with a Jacuzzi, a fully – landscaped yard with fountains, a built-in BBQ, a plant potting area with a sink, and several covered areas to entertain guests. Leading up to the yard is a concrete and brick driveway with a two-car, drive through garage with extra storage space for a boat or a car.
Inside this one-story home you find restored hardwood and updated travertine stone flooring, and additional cupboards, cabinets and closets, updated for today’s standards. However, there’s still an historic feel to this home with its decorative ceiling moldings, vintage ceramic tilework, French doors, a large bay window and window seat that looks out to the front lawn, and two, working fireplaces that add warmth on cool nights.
Other additions include the kitchen’s breakfast nook, granite counter tops and updated appliances, and the master bedroom’s half bath and walk-in closet. Open beam ceilings give this home a sense of spaciousness, taking advantage of the natural light. But the most exceptional add-on is the wood-paneled entertainment room with its 12-foot long, custom-made bar, complete with a brass foot rail and brass sink, providing a space for entertaining guests.
All in all, this home provides touches of the old and the new with abundant recreation space for family or guests. Just a short distance from the 210 freeway to schools, shopping, restaurants and nightlife, it is move-in ready and a great buy!
