Originally owned by Walter Putnam, a structural engineer who became the head of Pasadena’s building department, this 1925 home was built to last with style and a dependable grace. Located in the highly sought-after Cal Tech neighborhood, this Mediterranean influenced 2-story Craftsman home boasts original details throughout, from the window and door hardware to the hardwood floors and built-in buffet and bookcases in the dining room and living room. A Batchelder-style tiled fireplace warms the living room and there are lots of windows to welcome in the light in every room. The downstairs master suite has garden views, each upstairs bedroom has its own balcony to bring the outdoors in. A compact office has French doors which open out to the patio and private back yard. Modern amenities include central air & heat, an efficient laundry room, and a gourmet kitchen with Viking appliances, tasteful granite counters and Saltillo-tiled floors as well as a sunny breakfast nook. Unusual for California, there is a large basement to provide ample storage and wine cellar space. The 11,000 square foot lot includes raised garden beds behind the garage, an in-ground spa, an outdoor fireplace and BBQ, patios for al fresco dining and entertaining.
