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. Offering a good amount of cabinetry, the kitchen could be remodeled or totally redesigned, perhaps combining it with the adjacent service porch to create a spacious eat-in kitchen. 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 vintage cabinetry plus a combination shower/tub.

The original attic of the home has been converted to include two additional bedrooms, each with excellent closet space. Additionally, there is a storage room that might be suited to a bathroom conversion. This additional space on the second level, measured at 578 square feet, adds tremendous opportunity for further development of this functional space. The detached garage matches the character of the home with a tall pitched roof, offering a potential as an ADU or additional storage. 

The home has been updated with dual-paned windows, tankless hot water heater, newer HVAC, and a newer roof. Don't miss this charming cottage and let your imagination run wild with the many possibilities this home has to offer.
