In 1906, Frederick L. Roehrig – one of early Pasadena’s preeminent architects, known for local landmarks such as The Castle Green, The Braun Music Center at Westridge School, and several of the mansions on Orange Grove’s “Millionaire’s Row” – built this spectacular Craftsman residence in one of this city’s best neighborhoods. With only five owners over the past 114 years, the home has been lovingly maintained and, at the hands of its current owners, meticulously restored and updated.
The main floor includes a beautiful entry hall with a 1906 Tiffany chandelier, a wood-paneled library, large formal dining room, new kitchen with adjacent beverage/bar center, a TV room, and a breakfast room with French doors opening to a lovely patio. The living room features wood-beamed ceilings, a Batchelder-tile fireplace, and French doors that lead to a wisteria-draped, covered patio.
The master suite on the second floor includes a sitting room, French doors leading to a balcony overlooking the garden, a walk-in closet, and a spacious master bath. The three other bedrooms on the second floor are generous in size. The third floor has three additional bedrooms, two baths and an art studio. The finished basement has a wine cellar, a ¾ bath, gym and billiards room.
An outdoor fireplace anchors the east patio, and to the south lie expansive gardens, a pool/spa, and guest house. The 679 sq. ft. guest house (not included in sq. footage) includes an open bedroom, ¾ bath and kitchenette.
