Gorgeous Pasadena home with massive Batchelder fireplace lists for $2.3M

By Jenna Chandler

In the lower Arroyo Seco, nestled behind mature trees and fronted by a deep lawn lined at the sidewalk with boulders, you’ll find this two-story English Tudor Revival.

The architect was Pasadena-based Reginald D. Johnson, who also designed the landmark garden-style Village Green condominium complex in Baldwin Hills.

The five-bedroom residence was built in 1915 during the Arts and Crafts period, which heavily influenced the architecture of many Pasadena homes. One of the movement’s big players in LA was tile maker Ernest Batchelder, and his work is prominently displayed here. There are not one—but two—Batchelder fireplaces, including one in the living room that stretches from the floor to just below the ceiling. (Batchelder and his wife lived about a quarter-mile down the road).

This home has been owned by the same family for more than 50 years, the listing says, and they’ve gloriously refrained from painting over all of the handsome wood moldings. Other notable features include an abundance of windows, a sun room, and a pool.

The property measures .64 acres and is listed for $2.35 million.

Glamorous Mediterranean-style house replete with original ’20s details seeks $4.3M

By Bianca Barragan

Located up in the Los Feliz hills, this nearly 5,500-square-foot residence dates to 1924. Designed by architect Charles Kyson, it features beautiful beamed ceilings, wrought iron details, a library with a built-in humidor, and imported Della Robbia tiles.

The house’s former organ room has been converted into a wine cellar, but its dining room—disassembled in England and reassembled in Los Feliz, including the stained glass—has remained intact. (The organ in the old organ room was built to accompany the movies being screened in the living room, the listing says.)
