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.
