Tucked in the Camden Court neighborhood, this handsome craftsman turns 100 years old with the opportunity to be your family’s South Pasadena home. Built in 1912, when the Camden Parkway surrounded a lake and turnaround points for the Pacific Electric’s famed Red Cars, this charmer is nestled under a soaring, leafy elm and sits just steps from a grassy communal knoll in the ever-popular Marengo area.

 

Light streams into the home from all directions and warms the original hardwood floors. The generous living room features a completely rebuilt hearth with unique tiling, stately mantle and state-of-the-art chimney and firebox. With its open-floor plan the living room flows to a dining room, den, bar, and open kitchen with a separate laundry porch and bath. 

 

Upstairs, the sunny landing is central to four bedrooms and two bathrooms in a perfect floor plan for growing families. Generous windows in every room look out over leafy, mature trees. A shady private yard makes for great entertaining, and the rebuilt two-car garage is storage-ready with ample shelving. This shingled craftsman home is a rare chance to settle in one of the City’s most charming neighborhoods, close to South Pasadena’s best schools and parks.
