Pasadena, California, has more than its fair share of charming older homes. Here’s one that got my attention today — a 1908 Craftsman bungalow that has retained much of its original woodwork despite a 2005 remodel.
The listing says, “From the front porch to the back porch, you feel the authentic Craftsman atmosphere with modern amenities.” Take a look!

Extensively remodeled in 2005, this classic Craftsman is a real jewel, from the front porch to the back porch, you feel the authentic Craftsman atmosphere with modern amenities.

Adjacent to the kitchen is the family room with sliding doors leading out to a cozy porch.
5th bedroom suite, mudroom and powder rooms finishes off the downstairs.
Upstairs you will find a master bedroom suite including sitting area, large walk in closet and state of the art bath. Upstairs is another bedroom suite plus another 2 bedrooms, bathroom and laundry room.
Pocket doors open from the entry hall to reveal built-in china cabinets on either side of the built-in buffet:
The “Cook’s kitchen” has granite counters, glass subway tile backsplash, and “professional appliances.”
The oversize diamond-patterned floors make a dramatic statement in the room.
There’s more built-in storage in the breakfast nook, and a large window looks out onto the back covered porch and backyard.
As a homebuyer on “House Hunters” would say, this one has “plenty of space for entertaining!” The backyard has a pool, spa, BBQ area, and 3-car garage. There’s also a game room in the finished basement, as well as a wine cellar that holds around 2,500 bottles.
There are 5 bedrooms and 4.5 baths.
