It’s a famous historic gem in the middle of Pasadena. A quiet, leafy, close-knit neighborhood filled with early 20th century homes, many built during the Arts & Crafts period.
A Landmark District in the National Register of Historic Places, Bungalow Heaven was named one of the Ten Great Places in America by the American Planning Association and one of California’s best neighborhoods by Sunset Magazine. Its annual spring home tour is the hottest ticket in town.
Now, one of its homes has been listed by Pacific Union International. The 1926 two-story Cape Cod at 1203 N. Chester Avenue is rich with character details, from clipped gable roof and twin dormers to original hardwood floors and handsome built-ins.
It’s also filled with modern amenities, including an updated kitchen with eat-in area, open to the living room where four sliding French doors look out on a large backyard with a patio under a mulberry tree.
An expansive family room and a bedroom suite complete the main level. Upstairs, a luxurious master suite features a seating area, spa tub, separate shower, and large walk-in closet.
Two more bright bedrooms share a full bath. Above the two-car garage, a window-filled bonus room with dramatic exposed beam ceiling offers a flexible space for a yoga studio, home work loft or quiet retreat. This is Bungalow Heaven. This is home.
