Romantic Mills Act Pasadena Charmer
From the year it was built in 1928, this English Revival charmer has caught the eye of all who pass by. Since 2010, this spectacular home has had a Mills Act Contract offering significant tax savings to the owner and signifying the beauty of this historic home on this wide Pasadena street in the North Pasadena Heights Landmark District. Entering through the front door, one is struck by the barrel ceilings, the inlaid quarter sewn hardwood floors and the signature Batchelder fireplace so emblematic of the season in which this home was built. The original windows that are in working order throughout the home allow light to fill the space and add a warmth & character to this romantic home. The formal dining room showcases a bay window and a built-in buffet with glass doors, and a butler’s pantry. The kitchen is a chef’s delight with soapstone counters, a Viking double oven with a copper hood, hardware and light fixtures emblematic of the 1920’s, and access to the powder room and the grassy back yard. Downstairs there are three good sized bedrooms. The bedroom suite on the west side of the home features two closets, hardwood floors, a single door to the back yard and an attached character-full bathroom with archways, tile flooring and a pedestal sink. The two bedrooms at the back of the first level both have French doors opening to the inviting back yard, glistening hardwood floors and signature molding. The wooden staircase leads from the living room to the 2nd story featuring two additional bedrooms upstairs, one that can be used as a study with a nearby full bath with adjoining large alcove. The master bedroom suite stuns with a high, wood trussed ceiling, majestic views to the mountains, a full master bath with dual pedestal sinks, a large Lasco jetted tub, a stall shower and a window seat. The private back yard feels like an oasis with a newer heated, salt water pool and a large grassy area. Additionally, there is a new driveway from the back alley to the oversized 2 car garage which includes shelving and attic space for storage. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to own a piece of Pasadena history in this romantic historical home that is ideal for a multi-generational family or live-in nanny.
