Built in 1913
This “impeccably restored,” 1913 house in Altadena is checking off all the boxes for a dream Craftsman: handsome built-ins, gleaming hardwood floors, window seats, and three fireplaces sporting Batchelder tiles.
With all those details, it’s no surprise that, as the listing copy notes, the residence has made appearances on Pasadena Heritage’s Architectural Tour, “because of its exemplary construction and pristine level of preservation.”
Beyond the wide front porch, the approximately 4,000-square-foot house holds a very large kitchen, a butler’s pantry, a formal dining room, and French doors to the rear yard.
Five of the house’s six bedrooms are upstairs, as well as two of its three bathrooms. One of the bedrooms is an ample master suite with an attached master suite holding dual vanities and a travertine shower. The master bedroom also opens out onto a its own private patio.
The six-bedroom house is located in Altadena’s County Club neighborhood, on lot encircled with trees that’s less than a mile away from the neighborhood’s namesake country club.
It’s listed for $1.999 million.
