As the pace of modern life seems to move ever faster, the timeless and welcoming Craftsman character at 144 N Grand Ave feels like a warm embrace. For well over a century, this pride-of-ownership gem has impressed all who visit with its enduring beauty and a sense of permanence that has become increasingly rare. Designed by esteemed architect Joseph J. Blick in 1904, the home rests on a picturesque, tree-lined street perfect for casual strolls. Alive with the hospitable spirit that defines the iconic Craftsman style, the pleasures begin on the classic front porch where you'll savor warm summer nights as the sun sets and the crickets chirp. Inside, you'll revel in warmth and elegance. Exquisite formal rooms with high ceilings, fine detailing, abundant light, and stunning windows elevate any gathering into a truly memorable event. The family room, inviting kitchen, and bedrooms are equally appealing with their spaciousness and immense comforts. And like all the best houses, it's wonderful for entertaining, both inside and out. Time seems to slow down in the backyard, where the shady terrace, wisteria-covered pergola, handsome deck, and resort pool invite you to unwind in style. Artfully blended into the lush landscape, the pool includes a hot tub and sparkling waterfall. Proximity to the Rose Bowl, Old Town, and all of Pasadena's best offerings add to the allure of this time-honored gem. Now it's your chance to carry on the legacy and enjoy the good life at this exquisite home!
