1001 S Oakland Ave, Pasadena, CA
Welcome to 1001 Oakland, a handsome single story Craftsman home located in the sought after Madison Heights neighborhood of Pasadena. The home was built in 1912 and rests on a nearly 11,000 square foot flat lot. This beautiful home boasts all of the traditional Craftsman design elements with a gabled roof supported by exposed rafters and columns that create a welcoming front porch. The hefty wood front door and striking planked wood ceiling above the porch hint of the level of workmanship to be found inside. The home enjoys an open layout commonly found in this vintage with the living room and dining room connected but separated by beautiful built in glass front cabinets. The dining room built-in buffet design mirrors the cabinets with patterned mullioned glass front cabinet doors, a pattern that is echoed in the windows as well. Both the living room and dining room feature thick crown moldings and a pretty batchelder fireplace is the focus of the living room. Glass front pocket doors lead into the library with a box beamed ceiling, high wainscotting, a built-in bookshelf and french doors leading to a side porch. The kitchen features butcher-block countertops, white hex tile floors, glass front cabinets and plenty of windows making the space light and airy. A bedroom and office/nursery feed off the center hallway and share a bath. The primary suite is found at the end of the hall with french doors leading out to the spacious backyard. Off of the primary, a deck creates a space for outdoor seating and entertaining. The private grassy yard is nicely landscaped and provides plenty of room for a pool if desired, ADU, etc.... There is a one car garage with built-ins and an adjacent covered carport space. With its architectural quality and enviable location, this property is a prime example of Pasadena living at its finest.
