784 South El Molino Ave, Pasadena, CA
Built in 1914, this beautiful home in the heart of tree-lined Madison Heights conjures east coast farmhouse charm with clapboard siding, shuttered windows and a hipped roof. The home features a nicely sized family room replete with architectural detail such as floor to ceiling bookshelves lining one wall, a fireplace flanked by two round mullioned windows and large single light french doors leading out to the patio and garden. Traditional wainscotting lines the refined dining room and a second set of french doors brings the outdoors in. The formal living/library features a second fireplace, built in bookshelves and a spectacular sunroom that is flooded with light and provides a wonderful picture window from which to admire this incredible neighborhood. The kitchen is appointed with a Viking stove and handsome black granite countertops. There are four bedrooms upstairs, one which is currently being used as an office, including a spacious master suite. The backyard includes a large brick patio for outdoor eating and entertaining as well as a grassy yard and a garden where beautiful old growth trees provide privacy and shade. This lovely home, straight from the pages of a Martha Stewart magazine cannot be missed.
