486 California Terrace, Pasadena, CA
Just a stone’s throw from Pasadena’s beautiful Arroyo Seco, this charming craftsman bungalow was built in 1910. With two bedrooms and two bathrooms this home is a wonderful example of classic craftsman architecture. Lovingly maintained, the home possesses all of the traditional elements of great craftsman design - gorgeous woodwork including built-in bookshelves in the living room, a built-in buffet in the dining room, a quaint inglenook flanking the fireplace with a Batchelder tile surround, oak and fir hardwood floors, and a shingled exterior. The two bathrooms have been updated while maintaining the original character of the era. The kitchen is lined with wainscoting and extends to an eat-in area with french doors out to the backyard. The backyard features a brick patio for outdoor dining and space that is ready for your creative design. The finished garage has handsome barn doors plus a vaulted beamed ceiling and could be inspired bonus space. Updates include copper plumbing, a replaced foundation with the original river rock exterior and a newer concrete front porch.
