Home of the Week: Refined Style & Sought After Madison Heights Location on So Oakland Avenue, Pasadena

589 S. Oakland Ave., Pasadena, CA 91106
Published on Jul 19, 2023

The Preston Apartment House circa 1930 was designed by Pasadena’s quintessential architect Sylvanus Marston. One of just four units in a boutique, historic corner-lot building in Madison Heights. Marston could almost be considered the architect of Madison Heights, having designed 34 properties between 1908 to 1926 just in the area. The location offers effortless access to local hotspots on Lake Ave, The Play House District, Cal Tech, and more.

The timeless design of this 2 bed/1.5 bath condo offers the scale and elegance of a single-family home in a wonderful neighborhood. The enclosed front porch with palladian-style windows provides a charming and formal entry. Natural light pours into the generously proportioned living room with an ornately sculpted decorative fireplace, deep crown molding, and hardwood floors. The perfect entertainment spot is a formal dining room with high ceilings, crown molding, and hardwood floors.

The kitchen was remodeled in keeping with the architectural design of the unit. In-unit laundry is conveniently placed just off the kitchen.

Private quarters include two generously sized bedrooms, one full bath, and one-half bath. This home has new central air, heat, storage, and two gated, covered parking spaces.

A wonderful surprise is to be found in the private, gated gardens. Recently re-landscaped, they offer a place to relax under the trees or entertain with friends. Refined style, sought-after location, and a pedigree of distinction make this property a special find.
