This marvelous 1908 Colonial Revival, presiding on a tree-lined avenue in Pasadena, has been lovingly-restored by its owner of twenty years to not only reclaim its turn-of-the-century glory but enhance its original character to new heights. From the high-gloss finish front door to the cedar shingle exterior, the two-level, 5 bedroom home radiates an East Coast design sensibility. A wood-burning fireplace with gold leaf-adorned mantel commands the living room leading into the dining room, kitchen, and light-filled den inviting views into the ample garden and tranquil yard. Upstairs, an A-frame bedroom sits across from the master suite wherein lies a charming sitting parlor and lavish bath. In addition to exquisite panel molding, double-hung sash windows, and original Quarter Sawn Tiger Eye Oak as well as Birch floors throughout much of the home, the home’s elegant interiors are graced by Farrow & Ball paint, it’s superior pigment—displayed in art galleries and museums worldwide—a nod to the home’s esteemed pedigree.
