California Spanish in Historic Highlands
This charming 1922 Spanish casita sits in the center of a picturesque drought tolerant landscape in Pasadena's Historic Highlands neighborhood East of Lake Avenue. This uplifting 2-bedroom, 2-bath home and detached studio, offers a sizable living room with high ceilings and a wood-burning fireplace. The open concept kitchen provides a tile top dining bar adjacent to the formal dining area - which is accented by a triptych of revival style arched windows. The 2 bedrooms are on opposite sides of the home, adding to the sense of privacy. One bedroom is en-suite and the second bedroom opens to the rear gardens. The garden areas are fantastic, and include a terracotta clad side terrace with mountain views, a specimen Carob tree perfectly placed for a shady respite and an arbor accented by grape vines. A permitted detached studio offers an additional approx. 233 square feet of usable space with hardwood floors and great storage capacity. The fenced gardens are accented by colorful bougainvillea and the entire property conveys a sense of openness and seclusion at the same time. There is also a permitted electric vehicle car charger currently installed on the property.
