In the mid 1920’s the Art Deco style was gaining prominence due in part to what it represented – luxury, glamour, and technological progress. In the 1930’s and with the introduction of new forms of building materials, the Streamline Moderne style emerged with a focus on curving forms and aerodynamics. Fortunately, that style made its way to Pasadena and in 1941, 774 Coniston Road was built.
Situated on the east bank of the Arroyo and within close proximity to the Rose Bowl, 774 Coniston Road showcases the Streamline Moderne style perfectly. Curved lines on the front porch, recessed oval ceilings in the living room and den, and a smooth plaster finish on the fireplace, mantle, and shelving continue this theme. The living room is quite spacious and displays the beauty of the San Gabriel Mountains through its set of picture windows. Off the central hallway are the two bedrooms and bathroom. Each of the bedrooms offer multiple windows and ample cabinets with built-in drawers and wooden pulls. The bathroom has been remodeled with modern conveniences including a Japanese style bathtub and toilet. The kitchen includes original tile countertops, wooden cabinets, and a breakfast nook with access to the rear yard. The dining room features concrete flooring and accordion style doors that open to the wood deck . The current owners have done a wonderful job maintaining and updating the home during their tenure including new windows and doors, refinished hardwood flooring new central air conditioning and heating, copper plumbing, updated electrical, foundation retrofitting, tankless water heater, Nest thermostat, and a security system.
The grounds of the 10,600 square foot parcel have been recognized a “Certified Wildlife Habitat” for the natural landscaping installed in both the front and rear yards. It is easy to see why after experiencing all that the space has to offer including walking paths, a large gazebo, deck, and lighting. Simply put, Coniston is a wonderful opportunity for a fortunate buyer.
