PASADENA CHARMER

No detail was overlooked in this meticulously cared for 3-bedroom and 2-bathroom home,

which boasts clear views of the San Gabriel mountain range from the living room.

The 1923 California bungalow was fully remodeled in 2015 with care to include the original

character of the home: new electrical, plumbing including cleanout to main sewer line,

water heater, HVAC, floors, windows, bathrooms with water wise low flow

toilets/showerheads, and kitchen with marble counters, reverse osmosis triple water

filtration system, and built ins. The inimitable 1920s details remain: vintage arched front

door, breezeway with barrel-vaulted ceiling and original floor with great patina, recessed

ceiling in the living room, original fireplace remodeled with Italian porcelain tile. This is

gorgeous modern living that maintains the original character of this lovely home.

Thoughtfully designed, mature landscaping is a showpiece year-round. The front yard is a

Certified Wildlife Habitat ® by the National Wildlife Federation. The backyard includes a

small urban orchard with fruit-producing trees: satsuma mandarin, lime, Valencia orange,

pineapple guava, and 2 avocados, plus everbearing raspberry bushes. The home is equipped

with a laundry-to-landscape greywater system (installed 2020), newer sprinklers/drip

irrigation system, and newer gutters with a rain barrel for rainwater capture.

New energy efficient refrigerator/dishwasher (installed 2021) & washing machine (installed

2020). Comprehensive energy upgrades that keep energy bills low: solar attic fan, ecobee

smart thermostat, kitchen skylight, maximum ceiling insulation, reflective window film, and

insulated blackout cellular shades in all the bedrooms.

Foundation retrofit/earthquake brace and bolt completed with full permits in 2020.

Enjoy being a part of Pasadena’s most up-and-coming neighborhood, walking distance to

the Rose Bowl, Lincoln Avenue shops/restaurants (Highlight Coffee, Sailor’s Brew and the

incoming HomeState Tacos and Earthtone Natural Market). Less than one block from

Odyssey South Charter School Cleveland Campus, and minutes from Old Town Pasadena.
