Situated on 1.37 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds, this historic 7,774 square-foot home offers seven bedrooms and six and a half baths, along with an elevator, and eight fireplaces to enjoy.
Initially built in 1917 – and designed by the renowned architect Reginald D. Johnson, whose resume also includes the Biltmore Hotel in Santa Barbara – this home is surrounded today by mature oak, sycamore, and citrus trees.
The well-preserved residence offers high beamed ceilings, crystal doorknobs, and built-in bookcases. Just some of the additional amenities include a library, a game room, and a bonus room that could be well suited for a sitting area, or an additional home office.
Several sets of French doors can be found within the expansive home. Outdoors, from the beautifully manicured yard, you can take in the view of the Vista del Arroyo Hotel, as well as the majestic Colorado Bridge.
This elegant property, located at 430 South San Rafael Avenue in Pasadena, is currently listed for sale at an even $8 million (up from its $95,000 price tag back in 1971). It is on the market for the first time in nearly five decades. Private tours can be arranged for interested purchasers.
