1913 Craftsman in Pasadena’s Bungalow Heaven Asks $949K

 

Pasadena’s historic Bungalow Heaven neighborhood is full of lovely Craftsman houses, but this one stands out.

This beautiful 1913 Craftsman was built and designed by the famed David M. Renton, best known for his works; Mt. Wilson Observatory 1904, Pasadena Craftsman-style homes 1902–1919. In addition, Renton was recruited in 1919 by William Wrigley Jr. to develop Catalina Island including the Casino Ballroom, hotels & several homes. He also worked as contractor for many well-known design firms, including Greene & Greene, who are best known for Pasadena’s Gamble House.

The home still holds a bevy of details that hint at the property’s old-time charm: hardwood oak. and maple floors, a living room fireplace, built-in shelves and cabinets, and crown moldings.

In addition to three bedrooms, the bright home holds a dining room and a dedicated laundry room. There is also a spacious front porch that curves around the front.

Measuring roughly 1,800 square feet, it sits on a 10,752-square-foot lot, leaving plenty of space for a grassy yard, an orange tree, and a detached garage.

The house, in the same family for 64 years, is  listed for $949,000.

9941 McBroom Street Featured in CurbedLA

The living room is a gem

9941 McBroom Street | Main

1930s Storybook with Tudor touches in Shadow Hills seeks $700K

9941 McBroom Street | Shadow Hills 91040

Tucked away in the San Fernando Valley’s Shadow Hills neighborhood, this Storybook-style house with Tudor touches sits on a lot measuring over a half acre.

The house was built with two bedrooms and bathrooms, but was later expanded to its current five-bedroom, three-bathroom layout.

Though some parts of the house are probably in need of some aesthetic updates, there are some timeless features here too. The sunken living room features a vaulted, beamed ceiling, period windows, a fireplace, and, under the stained glass window, a bay window seat.

The house holds a dining room, family room and kitchen, which still contains some retro-looking but “well-maintained knotty pine cabinetry,” like in a cabin in the woods.

Next to the house, there’s large flat area, “once the corral for horses,” a nod to the property’s equestrian past. Farther into the property, there’s also a paved patio and a kidney-shaped pool.

The property is listed for $699,900.

Overlooking the Arroyo Seco, this three-bedroom Pasadena house offers awesome views of the arroyo and beyond.

The main living room and dining area are one big open space, with floor to ceiling windows, skylights, and a vintage fireplace with an unusual circular opening. Elsewhere in the house, there’s another vintage touch: “a hip, 1950’s stereophonic turntable waiting to be restored.”

The remodeled kitchen offers plenty of counter space and new quartz counter tops. The newly renovated master bedroom has a prime location in the house, looking out toward the pool and the patio. A corner of windows afford the room a view of trees and hillsides.

There’s also a pool, reachable by a curving staircase that runs down to the area from the upper landscaped backyard.

 

The property is listed for $1.59 million.

This two-bedroom house on 1406 Alameda Avenue is pretty much a little nugget of suburbia. Built in 1939, the two-bedroom is located in Glendale. Plus, it has a manageable lawn and a backyard pool—it might as well come with kids and a dog.

The interiors have been updated, most noticeably in the kitchen, where there are marble countertops, a farmhouse sink, and a butcher block-topped center island. The living room hosts a crop of windows. Flowing into those two spaces is a large dining room.

The lone bathroom features retro pink and red tile, and a separate shower and bathtub. In the rear yard, there’s a large pool, a covered patio, and a mural painted on the detached garage.

Last sold in 2009 for $525,000, public records show, the house is now asking $769,000.

This sweet Craftsman in Sierra Madre is just lovely. The house, built in 1921, is clad in redwood exterior siding and has an oversized front door. And, inside, there is a lot more glorious wood: white oak floors, wainscoting of mahogany, fir and redwood. French doors and casement windows abound.

The house’s three bedrooms are spacious and bright, and the bathrooms all feature vintage-looking tilework.

Saltillo tiles cover the floor of the dining room, which over looks the spacious rear yard. The house sits on a nearly 11,000-square-foot lot that includes a spa and views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby.

The house in the foothills last sold in 1979 for $97,500. It’s now listed for $1.499 million.
