Built in 1883, and designed by noted architect Henry Ridgeway, this beautiful Victorian style home in the Madison Heights neighborhood of Pasadena is full of charm and is tastefully distinguished by turn of the century details. The large and welcoming wraparound front porch greets you as you enter the house and walk into the entry and the living room, which have high 12 foot ceilings and double hung windows.
The dining room features two large windows, wood beams across the ceiling which add great character to the room, and plenty of space for a large table, making it perfect for entertaining.
The den, which can be accessed through the side door of the wrap-around porch, and is just through the entryway of the home, has an intricately detailed cast iron gas fireplace and a sitting nook. The details of the kitchen include beautiful brick walls, a large Wolf brand stove and oven, a built-in island, lots of cabinet space, and wide windows overlooking the backyard.
The home has 3 bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms, a large kitchen just past the dining room, an upstairs laundry area, and a balcony that overlooks the street, plus a separate guest room and ¾ bathroom behind the detached two car garage. Also in the bedroom is a wall of similarly styled built-in closet space with wood cabinets and drawers, a ceiling fan, and tall windows on the south wall which let in plenty of light. The downstairs bedroom has an attached office space with floor to ceiling built-in wood cabinetry, and an adjacent powder bathroom.
The staircase leads to a spacious landing area with a built-in shelf and overhead cabinets where the laundry hookups are located. The upstairs bathroom has two sinks, a free standing bathtub, and a sizable stall shower with white subway tile and a glass door. The first bedroom upstairs has a shutter door closet and french doors which lead to the balcony. The second bedroom upstairs has wood drawers for ample storage and a window which overlooks the backyard. Move in and experience all of the charm that 610 S Oakland Avenue has to offer!
