Real Estate Agent with The Berns Team 01787757

Located in a sought-after tree-lined neighborhood of South Pasadena is this historic 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom home situated on a 7,066 square foot lot. This beautiful home is one of the oldest homes on Grand Ave and has so much to offer! Curb appeal exudes with the picturesque craftsman construction of the home, the large Magnolia tree, well-maintained lawn, multicar driveway, and the large covered front porch that is perfect for taking in the Southern California weather. Entering the home, one is struck by the size of the living room and easy flow into the dining room with hardwood floors, many charming windows, crown, and base moldings signaling its origin as a classic American bungalow from the early 20th century. The living room is light and bright and features large windows that allow for natural light to enter the home with a traditional newly renovated and working brick wood-burning fireplace that is ideal for entertaining guests. The dining room is spacious and filled with character showcasing beamed ceilings, custom built-in display shelving, wainscoting, and a chandelier. The dining room seamlessly opens to the kitchen which features an abundance of cabinets for storage, double sinks, large windows, and stainless steel appliances including an LG refrigerator, a Kenmore 5-burner gas range, a Vissania microwave, and a dishwasher. Right off the kitchen, there is also a laundry area with a front-loading Kenmore washer and dryer opposite a small study nook and a window-clad back door that leads to the backyard.  The North side of the home features two bedrooms and a bathroom, connected by a shared 5-way hall with an extra built-in storage closet. Both bedrooms are spacious and feature large windows, Douglas fir hardwood flooring, and walk-in closets. The remodeled bathroom was inspired by classic 1920s design and features hexagon tile floors, subway tiled walls, a pedestal sink, a large cabinet with a full width, a height-adjustable mirror, and a tub/shower combo. The jetted tub is perfect for relaxation with its spa features. There are many things to love about this historic home, especially the peaceful and private backyard which features a grassy area, with large trees and foliage throughout, and two-tiered patios that are perfect for al fresco dining with a large Monument 5-burner stainless steel gas grill plumbed to use natural gas (no need for propane refills)! This home also has two additional parking spots behind the backyard with gated access from the shared private drive. The home also features a detached garage that has a finished space featuring a vaulted ceiling, recessed lighting, and hardwood floors. This is the perfect place for a home office or work studio which is separated by French Doors from the workshop area of the garage. In addition, there is a California basement with an exterior cellar door entrance. With the sought-after location, award-winning schools, Thursday farmer’s market, local horse trails, historic attributes, curb appeal, character, and beautiful backyard, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to call this South Pasadena home yours!

The picture got my attention, but the wall of words blocked me.  Have you considered bullet points for those of us with short attention spans?  ; )
