1918 House with Secret Wet Bar Asks $1.95M in Posh Pasadena
1234 El Mirador Drive, Pasadena 91103
1234ElMirador.com | Offered at: $1,950,000 | Open Sat & Sun 12-3pm
This timelessly stylish house is located in the ritzy neighborhood near Pasadena’s Rose Bowl, on Linda Vista Avenue, and was designed by the Pasadena firm Marston, Van Pelt & Maybury, which designed several other houses in the area.
Built in 1918, the four-bedroom estate sits on a 13,220-square-foot lot with mature avocado trees, and it has some cool touches, both modern and vintage.
The main residence has been updated, and includes central air conditioning and heating, plus a “robust” earthquake retrofit. A hidden wet bar and two fireplaces are tucked into a nearly 1,000-square-foot basement. In a sign of the times, the garage has a Tesla recharging station and even boasts its own bathroom.
There’s also a renovated one-bedroom guest house with its own kitchen and bathroom. The property has been in the same family for more than 50 years. It’s now listed for $1.95 million.
