There’s something about a classic Craftsman house like this that always grabs my attention–starting with that great front door. It was built in 1907 by Frederick C. Grable and Clarence Austin, whose architectural firm was responsible for designing many beautiful homes in Pasadena in the early 1900s.
The listing says, “This historic home was a passion project for the current owner who completed the renovations with painstaking attention to detail and in the highest quality.” It’s on the market for $1,775,000, so let’s take a look!
The house has new solar panels that generate enough electricity to run the entire property (which means no electric bill!).
I was surprised by the kitchen–didn’t expect it to be so white! According to the floorplans, there’s a breakfast room off the kitchen we can’t see here.
There are 4 bedrooms and 4 baths. This bedroom has a wall of built-in storage, including a ladder to help you reach the cabinets at the top:

The kitchenette in the lower level is closer to what I expected the main kitchen to look like:
The Pasadena Heritage Society chose it as one of five architecturally significant houses featured during the 2010 Craftsman Home Tour.
