Incredible opportunity to own this lovingly renovated, character-rich, two-story 3 bed/2 bath 1939 California Craftsman bungalow w/detached 1bed/1 bath legal ADU in Pasadena's coveted historic "Bungalow Heaven" district. From the moment you enter the lush grounds through the white picket fence, you'll feel at ease and transported to a simpler, more peaceful time. Exquisite stained glass adorns the eaves, and period light fixtures abound. Open the stunning oversized wood & leaded glass front door to find a classic bungalow-style living room complete w/original hardwood floors, wood burning central fireplace w/handsomely crafted wood mantle, subtle built-ins, wainscotting featuring traditional wallpaper accent, and loads of natural light streaming through the gorgeous casement windows. Head to the hall on the right and you'll find the spacious primary bedroom w/large walk-in closet, original full bath oozing w/charm & detail, built-ins, separate shower, tub, and pedestal sink. Wind your way down the hall to find a second bedroom, hall closet, and access to the second story. Up the stairs you'll find another sun-drenched bedroom, tree-top views, loads of storage space, and a flex space currently used as an office and art studio. That rounds out the footprint of the original home, and no expense was spared when constructing the 800+ sf addition boasting an oversized dining room w/wood burning & gas fireplace, spacious chef's kitchen, dedicated laundry room w/incredible cabinetry and storage and light, and full second bathroom with stunning marble shower and backsplash. The kitchen was truly built for a chef with its 6-burner Viking range w/built-in grill, pot filler, and 2 fully integrated refrigerators, 3 ovens, microwave, and built-in Dacor cappuccino maker. The black and white Dal tile floor and charming breakfast nook stay true to the era, while the custom cabinets, soaring ceilings, skylights, and high-end amenities add a fresh perspective. All of your guests will swoon and want to gather around your central eat-in island w/exquisite Carrera marble countertop (complete w/handy prep sink), cozy up and dine inside on winter nights with the fireplace ablaze, or step out through the magnificent French doors for dinner or cocktails al fresco on those warm summer nights. The quality of French doors and windows here is not to be missed or overlooked. Solar panels, new water heater, updated electrical, reverse osmosis water filtration system, and new central HVAC (2018) are just a few of the other upgrades. And then there are the gardens! Enjoy the quiet park-like setting from your built-in bench seating facing the gas firepit. Meander down the stone paths to discover hidden treasures like fountains, impeccable stonework, multiple seating areas, a little pond, and tons of juicy grapefruit, pomelo, lush ferns, succulents, fragrant gardenias, mature trees, flowers, and best of all, privacy. Easily access the detached ADU from the driveway and find your own little oasis. Built in 2018, this sun-drenched spacious home has it all. The open concept kitchen/living/dining space boasts vaulted ceilings, skylights, and quartz counters with eat-in peninsula. Stainless steel appliances, ample storage space, mini-split system, and in-unit stacked w/d are just a few of the many perks. Enormous bathroom with skylight, river rock floor, and gorgeous walk-in shower. Bedroom w/Murphy bed and French doors opening out to your private garden area makes this home a dream for any tenant, in-laws, or even your own separate at-home office. Last but not least, the neighborhood: Historic Bungalow Heaven is highly desirable not only because of the beautiful tree-lined streets and unique Craftsman homes, but also because of the wonderful neighborhood vibe. Walkable area close to both McDonald and Washington Parks, w/easy access to the 210, Metro Gold Line, Caltech, PCC, South Lake Ave District, Playhouse District, and amazing dining in Old Town Pasadena.
