Prominent architect Cyril Bennett designed Pasadena’s Colonial Court back in 1915. Each of the six homes are registered in the National Register of Historic Places and feature a variation of the popular Craftsman styling of the era – the Colonial Revival.
Sited in the middle of the court, 293 N. Garfield is a charming home featuring two bedrooms and one bathroom. Back in 2006, the current owner remodeled the kitchen, bathroom, and vaulted the ceiling in the living room. The result is an open floor plan and a wonderful opportunity for a very fortunate buyer.
Off the entry is the living room which features exposed beams, hardwood flooring, and original windows. The kitchen offers a Viking stove and hood, farmhouse sink, wood cabinetry, and a concrete countertop designed by award winning artist, Gary Simpson. Gary created Common Ground 191 back in 2002 in an effort to showcase to the world that the 191 United Nation member countries had at least one thing in common – soil. Over the course of 11 years, Gary collected soil from each member country and created an art piece that currently resides at the United Nations. Samples of the soil from 156 of those countries are part of the concrete mix that made the countertops at Garfield. Along with the upgrades to the kitchen and living room, the bathroom was also renovated with tile flooring and a newly glazed bathtub. Each of the two bedrooms are nicely sized with the master having direct access to the quaint rear yard.
The owner has enjoyed the location of Garfield and its close proximity to the Pasadena Central Library, Metro Station, Paseo Colorado, and Pasadena’s beautiful City Hall. Additional features of note include central heating and air conditioning, washer/dryer closet, and an alarm system.
