It is rare that a home comes for sale on Eldora Road. With the distinction of being Eldora’s most unique home, the “Castle” house is truly one of a kind. Located in Eldora Park, its namesake is a small street with decorative street lights, meandering sidewalks, charming character homes, and wonderful neighbors. From the annual block party and Christmas Caroling to the daily sidewalk conversations, the occupants of Eldora Road love living in this community.
Built in 1926, 611 Eldora is a French Normandy Revival with three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,985 square feet. The well designed floor plan starts with an inviting entry, a noted feature of the style, and opens into the formal living room. The living room is large and features an exposed beam ceiling, multiple French windows, built-in bookcases, original wall sconces, and a fireplace. Stepping up from the living room is the dining room, office, and front bedroom. The dining room also includes original wall sconces, French doors to the office, and a coved ceiling. Remodeled in 2003, the kitchen offers granite countertops, Bosch and KitchenAid appliances, recessed lighting, and a breakfast bar. The laundry room is off the kitchen and includes multiple cabinets and a utility sink. The central hallway has two linen closets and a charming telephone nook. Each of the three bedrooms are nicely sized and include large closets and access to both remodeled bathrooms.
Given the Golden Arrow Award in 2013 from Pasadena Beautiful, the professionally landscaped yards offer an assortment of plants, shrubs, and trees. The rear yard is also very private and features a covered patio and two car detached garage. Additional items include hardwood flooring, copper plumbing, central heating and air conditioning, and a retrofitted foundation.
