An American craftsman-style home designed by one of Pasadena’s preeminent architects has hit the market for $5.1 million. The 7,672 square foot residence was designed by legendary architect Frederick L. Roehrig and built in 1906 on a 0.57 acre property. Roehrig also designed local landmarks such as The Castle Green, The Braun Music Center at Westridge School and several other mansions on Orange Grover’s “Millionaire’s Row”. With only five owners over the past 114 years, the home has been lovingly maintained and, at the hands of its current owners, meticulously restored and updated. The main floor includes a beautiful entry hall with a 1906 Tiffany chandelier, a wood-panelled library, large formal dining room, new kitchen with adjacent beverage/bar center, a television room and a breakfast room with French doors opening to a lovely patio.
The living room features wood-beamed ceilings, a Batchelder-tile fireplace, and French doors that lead to a wisteria-draped, covered patio. The master suite on the second floor includes a sitting room, French doors leading to a balcony overlooking the garden, a walk-in closet, and a spacious master bath. The three other bedrooms on the second floor are generous in size. The third floor has three additional bedrooms, two baths and an art studio. The finished basement has a wine cellar, a 3/4 bath, gym and billiards room. An outdoor fireplace anchors the east patio, and to the south lie expansive gardens, a pool/spa and 679 square foot guest house with open bedroom, bathroom and kitchenette. It’s on the market for $5.1 million with Gretchen B. Seager of Sotheby’s International Realty.
