JUST LISTED: Beautiful & Historic Bungalow

We just listed unit #4 at 745 N Pasadena Avenue in Pasadena:

Historic Gartz Court, one of the oldest bungalow courts in Pasadena, was designed by renowned architects Myron Hunt and Elmer Grey in 1910. Moved to its current location on 1.5 acres in 1984 by the City of Pasadena and Pasadena Heritage, it is now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. There is a condominium arrangement to ownership, in which the homeowner’s association maintains the exterior of the units and the large, spacious grounds. The residences enjoy significant property tax savings as a result of their Mills Act status.

Sited near the center of the court, unit #4 offers two bedrooms plus an enclosed sleeping porch well-suited for use as a home office or den. Its tastefully remodeled kitchen features custom cabinetry, granite counters, professional grade stainless appliances and an adjacent service porch. The full bath, also recently remodeled, has a pedestal sink, clawfoot tub, marble flooring and beadboard wainscoting. In the rear, there is a beautifully landscaped yard and a detached two-car garage with attic storage. Period details -– broad front porch, multi-pane wood windows, quarter sawn white oak floors, clinker brick fireplace, built-in cabinetry, original hardware and box-beam ceiling –- reflect the era in which this Bungalow was built. Upgrades include central air, copper plumbing, updated electrical, newer roof and a tankless water heater.

A wonderful place to call home.
