Originally commissioned by Henry Finch in 1895, 496 Palmetto Dr was designed by English-born architect T.W. Parkes, who was responsible for much of Pasadena’s residential and commercial growth at the turn of the century.

The home is a prime example of the Shingle Style, a transitional Victorian/Craftsman style characterized by a complex silhouette and interior sheathed in a smooth and unassuming exterior. Downstairs, an expansive covered front porch graces the entrance, and an original pocket door separates the sitting room and family room.

18th Century Swedish-inspired designer wallpaper imported from the UK adorns the formal dining room. The dining room’s fireplace originally housed a coal burning stove and boasts its original tile, imported from Belgium. The remodeled chef’s kitchen retains its original copper sink, and original hardware is peppered throughout the home.

Upstairs hosts three spacious bedrooms and two elegantly remodeled baths with basketweave marble floors, clawfoot tubs, and a steam shower in the master. What was formerly a generous sleeping porch has been converted into a grand master suite surrounded by broad windows, bathing the room in natural light, highlighting designer wallpaper imported from the UK.
