Nearly 100 years ago, local builder and artisan Frederick (Fritz) Ruppel tapped into his master craftsmanship to design a dream home for a very special client—his mother, Gertrude. Nestled on a spacious, manicured lot in Pasadena, California, the 1925 Spanish Colonial Revival known today as The Ruppel House was recently put up for sale.
The 1,825-square-foot dwelling remains in pristine condition, blending original features with sensitive updates throughout the years. The heart of the home is a large living room that boasts beamed cathedral ceilings and opens to a courtyard and fountain. Arched doorways connect the interior spaces, while custom built-ins enhance the historic charm.
In total, the house includes three bedrooms and two baths. The remodeled kitchen offers light blue cabinetry, adding a pop of color to the otherwise wood and terracotta tones. A private side patio is idyllic for a future herb garden. Scroll ahead to see more of the property, currently listed for $1,495,000.
