Pick of the Week

The design-centric real estate firm deasy/penner&partners has chosen 311 Congress Place as the Real Estate Pick of the Week.

This charming Victorian house was built by G.W. Stimson, one of Pasadena’s first landowners and builders. The garage, formerly a barn was also built in 1891 and in 1908, a summer cottage, approximately 16×30 was added. Many of Pasadena’s most prominent families have lived on this property on historic Congress Place. The property has not been on the market in over 40 years.

Prominent features of the property are very high ceilings, light-filled rooms, and extensive woodwork. Downstairs there is an entry hall, double parlor ( living room) with a fire place, formal dining room, very large kitchen and breakfast area, laundry, wet bar, maids room and bath. A spiral staircase leads to a TV room, formerly used by the children. Additionally there is a Master suite with bath and study, three other bedrooms, and 2 baths.

The present owners have lived here for 40 years and have lovingly remodeled, restored and maintained this historic property.
