Description

MLS# 818000880

Faded Pasadena Rose Queen In 1905 the Tournament of Roses Edition of the Pasadena Daily News featured this 1902 craftsman under the heading Some Handsome New Madison Avenue Homes. It was described as a home one stops to look at a second time. Many years and much deferred maintenance later, this sleeping beauty is ready to be awakened with some serious restoration. Many of its vintage beauty marks still exist a beautifully crafted coffered ceiling, a gorgeous Batchelder fireplace, dazzling diamond pane windows (with original wavy glass) and a soaring river rock chimney. Circa 1925, the owners updated the house with some cutting edge improvements of the day: indoor plumbing and electricity! Also added was the porte cochere. This home, which obviously needs love and work, is apreservationist's dream. Once restored it will be a showplace in tree-lined Madison Heights, one of Pasadena's prettiest areas. Besides 6 BR, 5 BA, there's a pool w/ pool house, 4 car garage and a man cave large enough to accommodate King Kong. Buyer to check all permits & comply with City Occupancy. Bonus - Jeopardy question: He was serving his 2nd year as US President when house was built in 1902. Listed by Pamela Lansden, Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Company.
