967 North Chester Avenue

Pasadena, CA
Built in 1914, this Craftsman Bungalow is one of five designed by prominent Pasadena architect and former protege of Greene & Greene, Cyril Bennett. In a neighborhood that would eventually be called “Bungalow Heaven,” one of the first designated historic landmark districts in Pasadena. This home is one of the first in the area and is a great example of Bennett’s ambitious vision of residential architecture. True to its Arts and Crafts roots, it features abundant use of Arroyo river rock, stucco, brick and quality woodwork. A large open beam front porch is framed by mature trees, drought tolerant landscaping and provides shading and passive cooling throughout the home during hot summer days. Rows of casement windows and five sets of French doors allow for light to spill into the living room with a fireplace and hardwood floors. The formal dining room has a beautiful built-in buffet and opens to the screened side porch. Recent renovations to the kitchen were done with the utmost care to ensure period-appropriate fixtures and modern conveniences. Three bedrooms, a den, and laundry area complete this house. Generations of pride of ownership are evident in the layers of this bungalow. Featured in the 2014 Bungalow Heaven Home Tour and has the sought after Mills Act designation offering property tax savings. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to become this home’s next steward.
