Colonial jewel in prime Madison Heights
This 1921 Center Hall Colonial in Pasadena’s leafy Madison Heights area embodies classic all-American appeal, devotedly preserved and enhanced through the decades. The home, at 1030 South Oakland Avenue, is currently listed by Ted Clark and Heather Lillard at $2,150,000. Beyond the portico-framed front door, the feeling is unusually spacious for the era. There’s a wide, inviting flow between the formal living room with its welcoming fireplace and the sunlit family room, where multiple French doors frame the tree-shaded yard. Built-in corner cabinets frame the formal dining room, and the breakfast room, just off the large, well-equipped kitchen, is filled with leaf-dappled light thanks to French doors that open to the patio and lawn. Detailed moldings, wide wainscoting and gleaming hardwood and tile floors underline the simple, timeless elegance throughout, while recessed lighting bathes the details in softly diffused light. On the second floor, four bedrooms surround a gracious, wide landing. More French doors here lead to a charming deck in the treetops. The pitched ceiling and cozy fireplace in the master suite make for a truly romantic hideaway. The charming, walkable neighborhood is moments from the Shops at Lake Avenue and the historic Langham Huntington Hotel, opened just seven years before this home was born. The chance to own an historic home this welcoming and beautifully preserved is rare. Take it. For more information, visit 1030 South Oakland Ave, Pasadena
