Built in 1923 this beautiful Mediterranean style home is located in Pasadena's coveted Oak Knoll District. The elegant facade of this home opens, through rustic wooden doors, to a romantic walled courtyard with a fireplace and fountain. Upon entering the home, original old world details such as the black and white marble floor, the rich walnut wainscotting, massive door surrounds and moldings speak to the quality and craftsmanship of a bygone era. The sophisticated living room features four sets of french doors, a fireplace, high ceilings and a large floor to ceiling window. The dining room also enjoys a set of french doors out to the front courtyard creating excellent flow for entertaining.
