Located in the ever-popular Marengo neighborhood, this warm and welcoming home sits on an iconic South Pasadena street lined with century old homes under towering Camphor trees.  The former home of the chief designer of Union Station and known to moviegoers as the Back To The Future “tree” house, 1800 Bushnell is a treasure trove of highly coveted Craftsman details.  Douglas Fir moldings, beams and wainscoting, two fireplaces, stunning stained glass, charming built-ins, Arts & Crafts lighting, pocket doors, hardwood floors, multi-pane casement windows and so much more.


The original front door opens into the first floor formal living and dining rooms, cozy library, powder room, spacious kitchen with mudroom, and bedroom (currently used as an office). The wide staircase leads to three additional bedrooms upstairs, including a master suite with sitting area, dressing nook, laundry area and full bath.  Another full bath off the hallway completes the second floor. The finished basement is a marvelous media room/ recording studio space. 


The oversized lot features a porte cochere, raised brick dining patio, large grassy lawn and outdoor fireplace perfect for entertaining on chilly nights.  The two-car garage has been converted into your own personal pub with a pull-down movie screen, bar and plenty of space to gather for game nights or watching your favorite flicks.
