This enchanting 1925 English cottage with original charm is near Farnsworth Park in a wonderful pocket of Altadena. With its steeply pitched roofline, rounded archways, and stone columns, this home boasts classic cottage-style architectural features. In need of some interior renovation, this home offers true potential.
The covered front porch is flanked by two large windows with darling decorative shutters. Upon entry, you’ll find a warm living room graced with a period fireplace believed to be Batchelder. A rounded archway leads to the dining room with a large built-in cabinet, a popular feature of this era, offering functionality and vintage character. The light and bright kitchen is just beyond the dining room. In need of a remodel, there is a good amount of space and has a large adjacent back room. These two rooms offer the potential of a large eat-in kitchen or an adjacent laundry room.
On a separate wing are two bedrooms and one bathroom. Each bedroom features a walk-in closet with built-in dressers. Natural light flows through the multiple windows in each room. There are two closets in the hallway. The full bath features a pedestal sink flanked by built-in cabinetry on each side plus a combination shower/tub.
The original attic of the home has been converted to include two additional bedrooms and a large storage closet, that might be suited to be converted to a bathroom. The additional living space on the second level measured at 578 square feet adds tremendous opportunity for further development of this functional space.
There is a detached garage with a tall pitched roof, offering the possibility of additional significant storage or conversion into an ADU.
Don’t miss this charming cottage, located at the base of the beautiful San Gabriel mountains.
