Newly bloomed: 1920 treasure in Madison Heights
Last summer, a visionary team launched a sensitive eight-month restoration of the four bedroom, 3.5 bathroom Marston & Van Pelt home at 883 South Oakland in Pasadena. Their goal: to thoughtfully showcase its nearly 4,000 square feet of classic beauty. The breathtaking result has just been unveiled, listed at $2,998,000 by Jerry Current. Designed at the dawn of Pasadena’s Golden Age, this stately center hall Colonial, with its triple dormers and broad columned porch, retains its beautiful period elements, from original hardwood floors, high ceilings and deep crown moldings to a sparkling sunroom and an immense walk-up attic. Step through the side lighted front door and glowing original hardwood floors sweep past the foyer into the formal living room, where an inviting fireplace with period tile welcomes you and double French doors open to a leafy patio view. From the window-filled formal dining room, pass through a roomy butler’s pantry with glass- fronted cabinets to the open white kitchen. Carrera marble countertops, Thermador appliances and a softly textured tile backsplash surround a spacious island with soapstone countertop and statement light fixtures. The open concept space flows into the breakfast and family rooms. Up the elegant foyer staircase, the master retreat is a serene escape whose showstopping bath features a grand freestanding clawfoot tub, deluxe custom shower and separate dual sinks. This level is home to three more bedroom suites with treetop views. Expansive patio areas, shaded by grand oak and sycamore trees, invite a beautiful indoor/outdoor flow for entertaining. The sprawling lawn embraces a relaxing hot tub. The 1,000+ square foot finished attic, filled with natural light from the home’s three dormer windows, presents countless opportunities. Clearly, Marston & Van Pelt’s classic vision is more than ready for its next century.
