Nestled on an idyllic tree lined street adorned by a dazzling cornucopia of vintage homes is this 1925 Storybook English abode in Pasadena’s enchanting San Rafael neighborhood. Just a 5-minute walk to desirable San Rafael Elementary and beloved for 26 years, this timeless beauty with a captivating curved Dutch gable roof and shimmering leaded glass windows is a feast for the senses with nearly all her character intact.
Past the stunning Elm tree and expansive front yard, visitors are welcomed by a soaring barreled ceiling, Batchelder fireplace, original wood floors and a magnificent divided light picture window that floods the home with natural light. Lath and plaster walls and archways gaze upon the dining room with a dramatic cloister vault ceiling and a bank of windows that overlook the generous front yard and bathes the space in warm sunlight.
Accentuating the thoughtfully updated kitchen is an irresistible breakfast nook surrounded by casement windows and built-in cabinets. The verdant backyard beckons from a French door at the end of the hallway with the bedrooms and baths flanking either side. On the left, the spacious primary bedroom has ample storage, casement windows and French doors to the sunny patio. The colorful and whimsical baths, one with a striking vintage built-in, are playful additions to this sumptuous grand dame.
At the end of the long gated driveway is a detached garage with a roomy loft perfect for an ADU conversion, while the main house features nearly 900 sq ft of unfinished space in the attic waiting to be reimagined. Minutes to lovely Lower Arroyo Park, world class shopping and dining in Old Town Pasadena, the Rose Bowl, Eagle Rock and Little Flower, this splendid beauty eagerly awaits the arrival of her next adoring guardians.
