587 Prospect Boulevard, Pasadena

Which is more exquisite: this 1922 Old World revival, or the enchanting landscape around it? The reality is, the two make an endearing marriage of vintage architecture and natural beauty, lovingly cultivated inside and out.

Set in Pasadena’s tree-lined Prospect Park Historic District, on the National Register of Historic Places, this multi-gabled residence has retained its lovely period details, from original wavy glass windows to charming French doors, crown molding and glass doorknobs. A massive arched doorway opens into the formal entry and living room, highlighted by a dual-burning fireplace surrounded by vintage Batchelder tile. In the dining room, storage shelves show off their contents behind an arched, glass-paned door (echoed by the arched kitchen door). Everywhere, French windows and doors frame leafy garden views.

The bright kitchen with pantry and breakfast nook has recently been remodeled to very high standards, with hickory hardwood floors, quartz countertops, custom Shaker inlaid cabinets and recessed LED lighting. Amenities include Thermador appliances and built-in wine refrigerator, microwave, coffee machine, breakfast nook TV and island USB connection. The main level also houses a sunroom, den/media room, closet conversion office, and remodeled three-quarter bath with travertine tile and antique sink cabinet.

The upper level is floored in fir throughout. A large balcony off the main hallway overlooks the lavishly landscaped grounds. The master suite is served by custom built-in cabinetry, a large walk-in closet and large three-quarter bath with dual granite-topped sinks. The laundry room is also part of this space. The second floor includes three more bedrooms and a fully remodeled bath with custom cabinetry, granite countertop, travertine tile work and bathtub with bubbler.

The breathtaking grounds are a key highlight of the home. The lush, tree-shaded landscaping includes oak, Australian Elm and citrus trees. Two waterfalls and a pond accentuate the setting, while lighting enhances the magical effect by night. The rear grounds, paved in rustic stone slab, feature an in-ground spa that easily seats six; two nearby fire pits; and an outdoor kitchen with BBQ, refrigerator, storage cabinets and drawers, polished concrete countertop, sink and custom seating. A California basement and a detached two-car garage with rear workroom complete the property.

The long list of upgrades includes automatic gate, copper plumbing, service, tankless water system, updated 200 AMP electrical, newer central heating, newer AC in the kitchen and on the upper level, surround sound, recessed lighting, alarm system and rain gutters.

A rare find in the heart of historic Pasadena — ready for its next beautiful chapter.
