When one thinks of a Craftsman home, 1097 N. Garfield Avenue should come to mind. Beautifully appointed and wonderfully restored, Garfield is the quintessential Crafts- man. Built in 1923 as a two bedroom and one bath, the home was expanded and remodeled starting in 2001 and now includes a large master suite and numerous updates. The result is a floor plan of 1,824 square feet with three bedrooms and two bathrooms.
Situated in the heart of the Garfield Heights Landmark District, 1097 N. Garfield Avenue is the perfect blend of old and new. The character of a 1920’s home with the benefit of today’s standards including updates to the plumbing, electrical, roof, foundation, and air conditioning and heating systems. The charm of this home is consistent through- out but the living room and dining room truly showcase the Craftsman style. The living room offers hardwood flooring, exposed wood moldings, wall sconces, and a Batch- elder fireplace flanked by built-in cabinets. The dining room includes a French door to the side porch, a wonderfully designed original buffet, and access to both the main hallway and kitchen. Off the main hallway are the nicely sized front bedrooms and hall bath. With a large center island, newer stainless appliances, wood cabinetry, and an eating area, the kitchen was expanded during the remodel and is exceptional and full of natural light. The master suite is equally exceptional. The contractor did a master- ful job in replicating an era-specific fireplace and utilized salvaged windows to match the Craftsman style. The space also includes a walk-in closet, French doors to the rear porch and yard, and a spacious master bathroom with designer vanity, tiled shower, and large tub. The front and rear yards have been professionally landscaped and finish the home. Both offer an assortment of mature vegetation, plants, flowers, and fruit trees.
1097 N. Garfield Avenue is a wonderful opportunity for a fortunate buyer to own part of Pasadena’s storied history. Additional features include a newer 500 square foot two car garage, alarm system, house speakers, and a basement.
