957 North El Molino Avenue
Built in 1910 by notable Rose Bowl contractor Will A. Taylor for George F. Thompson, developer of the Orange Heights tract, 957 N. El Molino Avenue is an authentic Craftsman and a prime example of the Art and Crafts era. The Orange Heights neighborhood is widely recognized as Pasadena’s best and largest collection of single-family homes produced during that era. Sited on a large 9,000 square feet lot that extends from El Molino to Leighton Alley, this home contains the characteristics of a true Craftsman. Built-in’s, pocket doors, sconces, picture and plate rail moldings, and tall ceilings all make this home special. During the current owners 17-year tenure, she enjoyed those details along with a well-designed floor plan of over 2,600 square feet that includes a living room, family room, dining room, sunroom, remodeled kitchen, six bedrooms and two bathrooms, an extended California basement, and a nicely sized rear yard. She also loved that the home was elevated above El Molino, adding a bit more privacy to a busier street. The charm and character of this home are truly breathtaking and the history within its walls is something not to be missed. A one-of-kind home for a very fortunate buyer.
