Welcome to a piece of South Pasadena history which has been masterfully upgraded with all of today's modern features and finishes. Built by famed architect John C. Austin (LA City Hall, Shrine Auditorium, Griffith Park Observatory just to name a few) in 1906 for the prominent Marvin family. This gorgeous Craftsman home is truly an oasis both inside and out. Sitting atop a knoll, the home offers numerous balconies and wrap around porches to relax and take in breathtaking sunsets and views of the San Gabriel Valley. The first level offers a newly remodeled guest quarters with its own entrance, including a loft bed, sitting area, 3/4 bathroom and walk-in closet. The main house boasts 3 very spacious bedrooms and 2.5 bathrooms. The primary bedroom is located on the top floor that is coupled to a generous sitting area, currently used as a home office space, a walk-in closet, and ensuite bathroom complete with a soaking tub, shower, and beautiful modern finishes. The exquisite interior of the home is only paralleled by the stunning backyard space. The current owners have transformed what was a woodland hillside to an actual outdoor oasis complete with a sports court, grassy lawn, vegetable bed, and terraced landscaping. The entire home was extensively retrofitted, reinforced, and remodeled with permits. The list of upgrades is endless, and as soon as you walk through the door you will not be disappointed!
