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.

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.
