Somerset House Condos Pasadena 91106

211 South Wilson Avenue


This is a real estate market activity report for the Somerset House condos located at 211 South Wilson Avenue in the South Lake Avenue area neighborhood in Pasadena.  In this report I will share information regarding the complex, its location as well as real estate activity so far in 2017 and sales for the previous four years.   Statistical information in this report has been gathered from our local multiple listing service(mls) and may not include all transactions in the complex.


Somerset House was built in 1965 and consists of 30 single level floor plans ranging in size from one bedroom/one bath to three bedrooms/three baths with approximate square footages from about 800 to nearly 1500.  The Somerset House Pasadena Condos 211 South Wilson Avenueprofessionally managed gated complex does not have any common area amenities.  Most units have either a patio or balcony area.  


The complex is gated and opens to a courtyard with elevator service to all floors.  Parking is subterranean and there are common laundry facilities(some units have added washer-dryer hook-ups, prospective buyers to verify).  The monthly homeowner association(HOA) fees are a bit higher than in comparable complexes but includes utilities (buyers to verify).  As you might expect, turnover of units in this Pasadena condo complex has traditionally been relatively low.  


The Somerset House location is just north of the campus of California Institute of Technology(Caltech), just west of Pasadena City College(PCC), south of Colorado Boulevard and the route of the annual Tournament of Roses parade plus a short stroll from abundant shopping, dining, entertainment and culture found in the South Lake Avenue and Playhouse District.   Transportation is convenient too with easy access to multiple freeways as well as the Lake Avenue Gold Line light rail station.   


  • There is currently one condo for sale at 211 South WIlson Avenue.  Newly listed, it is a one bedroom floor plan on the third level with with approximately 811 square feet.  In fairly original condition, it is priced at $369,000 --- a real opportunity to transform a condo in a popular location.  An updated first floor one bedroom unit with approximately 807 square feet with a large patio sold in May for $410,000(list price $399,000).


  • There were two mls-reported closed sales in 2016.  Each was a one bedroom floor plan.  A first floor unit in near-original condition with approximately 807 square feet closed for $328,000(list price $340,000) in an all-cash transaction in November.  In December a top floor unit with some updates sold for $340,000(list price $348,888).   


  • In 2015, there was just one closed transaction reported.  This was a renovated three bedroom/three bath units with approximately 1498 square feet which sold for its list price of $599,000 in April of that year.


  • Full year 2014 saw two closed sales according to mls statistics.  A one bedroom unit with 811 approximate square feet sold in November for $309,000(list price $299,000).   The same three bedroom condo that I mentioned selling in 2015 was a short sale and sold for $420,000(last list price $430,000) in November, 2014

Good Morning Michael, the current condo for sale in Somerset House Condos sounds like it has a lot of potential. Lots of wiggle room to make updates and still be in line with updated comps.
