Description

New Price! Here is your chance to own a piece of South Pasadena History! Welcome to the Charles Gibbs Adams House, a contributing element of the El Centro-Indiana-Palm Historic District and a Designated Mills Act Home. Built in 1903 by John H. Jacobs, a local developer at that time, the first floor exterior is covered in wood clapboards, while the second floor is clad in wood shingles laid in a butt pattern. This two story American Foursquare with subtle Classical detailing features three bedrooms, one full bath and two half baths. The home is capped with a low pitched hip roof sporting flared eaves, giving the building a slight Asian feel. An inviting porch and beautiful original front door welcome you into a formal entry and staircase leading to the second story which includes all three bedrooms with a shared landing area, a remodeled full bath with period appropriate finishes, and an additional half bath and sunroom off one of the bedrooms. The main first level includes a living/parlor room featuring a built in bench alongside the decorative fireplace and a picture window, next is the formal dining room with a bay window and built-in bench seat, which opens for storage. The room's dominant element is a built in hutch that incorporates a serving surface with drawers below and glass fronted doors above. Adjacent to the dining area is the beautifully updated period kitchen with stainless steel appliances, butcher block counters, shaker cabinetry, custom backsplash, breakfast area and an abundance of natural light. Completing the first level is a service porch with laundry, updated half bath, and French doors leading to the beautifully landscaped back yard with an array of trees and various plant species, fireplace patio, multiple sitting areas, and century old brick pathways designed by Charles Adams himself, who happened to be a landscape architect. ADU plans have gone through the first phase of plan check with the city and there is even room for a pool! The rectangular garage, built in 1930, is street-facing with side by side carriage doors and is currently being used as a music room/guest pad. Other upgrades throughout the years include electrical, HVAC, paint and so much more. Nearby are Award Winning schools, Farmers Market, Trader Joe's, the Metro, Library, Orange Grove Park, golf & tennis, coffee shops, restaurants, Old Town Pasadena, DTLA and so much more! A true gem in a prime location!
