An impeccably maintained sanctuary in South Pasadena, this 1928 Spanish home blends original character with privacy and nature. The 2 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1,248 sq. ft. home sits perched above the street, completely gated, and surrounded by blooming bougainvillea, a towering ash tree, and abundant native California plants. Rife with pristine original details, the home features exquisite elements including walnut-stained wood flooring, plastered walls, artisanal built-ins, antique light fixtures, iron railings and curved archways. The light-filled, spacious living room is the home's centerpiece, with a fireplace bordered by colorful porcelain tile, sister built-in cabinetry, and wood beamed ceilings. Windowed cantina doors open to the front yard, creating a seamless transition to the outdoor space and allowing air flow throughout the home. A charming, large dining room sits above the living room, separated by a gorgeous twisted wrought iron gate. Adjacent sits the kitchen, with blue tiled countertops and ample cabinet space and a back door opening to the center courtyard with fire pit and dining area - an entertainer's delight. Both bedrooms are generously sized with large closets. The meticulous vintage bathroom features pink and white checked flooring and pink glazed porcelain tile. The repurposed detached garage can be used as an office or studio. One driveway parking space is located in front of the garage, and the street has ample street parking. The home is located in the highly acclaimed South Pasadena School District and is within close proximity to some of South Pasadena's hottest restaurants, shops, and coffee spots. Enjoy visits to the South Pasadena Farmers Market on Thursdays as well as the convenience of the nearby 110 freeway and the Gold Line Metro. This dreamy Spanish is ideal for the design-minded buyer seeking privacy and centrality - and it's here just in time for summer!
