735 South El Molino Avenue, Pasadena

Situated in the heart of desirable Madison Heights on a popular tree-lined street, this stately home has been treasured and enjoyed by the same family for almost fifty years. Well built in 1916 with recent upgrades, this light-filled home has great bones and lovingly awaits a new owner. The traditional center hall floorplan features gracious rooms with crown moldings, large picture windows and hardwood floors, and opens to a deep backyard perfect for outdoor enjoyment.

An inviting front porch beckons guests into a lovely living room with a handsome fireplace and an elegant dining room for formal entertaining. A breakfast room, butler's pantry, kitchen and service porch, provide ample space for remodeling needs. A cozy den and a fifth bedroom with bathroom overlook the large backyard. Gracing the upstairs are four generous-sized bedrooms with walk-in closets, portable air-conditioning units and transom windows, including a charming front bedroom with a fireplace. Two full bathrooms, a small study, a back staircase plus a large rear deck, offer potential for expansion.

The flat and expansive backyard, shaded by mature trees, houses a garage, storage room, workshop and grassy lawn with room for pool, and presents a wonderful blank canvas. Additional upgrades in the last 10 years include copper plumbing, copper main line, rewiring, updated electrical, 200 amp service, tankless water heater, French drains, roof and bolted foundation. Just a short jaunt to South Lake’s trendy restaurants, shops and markets, Langham Hotel, Huntington Library Gardens, and with easy access to major freeways to DTLA, west and east sides, this special home offers a fabulous opportunity for a creative buyer to realize their dream home and be a part of a treasured historic neighborhood.
