208 South Grand Avenue, Pasadena, CA 91105
Originally built in 1889, this gracious Colonial Revival residence was redesigned in 1910 by the noted Pasadena architect Louis du Puget Millar, and then underwent a major restoration and remodel in 1996 by David Serrurier, A.I.A. With stunning curb appeal and located on one of southwest Pasadenas most beautiful streets, this home exhibits many wonderful architectural details including an arched entry portico, 10 foot ceilings, built-in cabinets and bookcases, and a Grueby tile fireplace to name a few. The ground floor offers beautifully appointed formal living and dining rooms, a sun room, gourmet kitchen that opens to an informal sitting area, and French doors that lead out to 3 large pergola-covered porches overlooking the mature gardens, pool and spa. The second floor features a spacious master suite with separate home office area, large walk-in closet, and a light-filled master bath. There are three additional bedrooms one with an adjoining enclosed sunporch, and a 3/4 bath. A staircase from one of these bedroom leads to a 1200 +/- sq. ft. of attic space which presents an incredible opportunity for storage or possible expansion of the livable square footage to the home. The beautiful gardens and pool were designed by landscape architect Mark Berry. The 630 sq. ft. pool/guesthouse with kitchenette and fireplace is ideal for visitors, and the original carriage house for the home is now a 3 car garage with a 350 sq. ft. studio and 3/4 bath above.
