This adorable late Victorian cottage was built in 1902 and moved to the current location from Burbank in the mid 1920’s. The exterior retains its original appearance, including the saw tooth shingles above the fascia board which caps the first story. Many windows maintain the original Cylinder Glass panes with their wavy appearance. The recessed front porch offers a lovely place to enjoy morning coffee or a cold drink.
The interior of the house has been vastly restored, in many cases to the studs. The living room and dining room received enormous amounts of light from the tall stately windows and afford views of the lush landscaping surrounding the cottage. The kitchen and baths have all been renovated in period correct detail. The ensuite first floor Master Bedroom is equally bright and cedar clad closet is spacious for a house of this size. The second bath is located in the rear of the house off the efficiently designed Laundry Room. Upstairs are two rooms, a generous sized Sitting Room/ Studio and the second bedroom.
The yard is compact but beautifully landscaped and maintained by the owners, one of whom is a retired florist. This home is located just ½ block from South Pasadena’s Community Garden. It is conveniently located 3 blocks to the Mission Shopping District which is home to many fine restaurants, coffee shops, antique stores and the Metro Gold Line stop.This home is a charming gem steeped in history in the historic and much sought after city of South Pasadena!
