If you have ever toured the Pasadena Landmark known as the Gamble House, you have probably begun to wonder what it would be like to live in a Pasadena Craftsman? When you mention Pasadena architecture, a 1960 Ranch Style home is not usually the first image that pops into your head. With its rich use of Oak and decorative accouterments, Craftsman Houses from the Arts & Crafts period have captured the imagination of purists who are not looking for the latest remodel but for authenticity and originality.

While the Greene & Green Gamble House will never be an option, there is another house just up the street with the same style and magnificence. Plus it does have one feature that the Gamble House does not have and that is, it is currently for sale.
Move In and Enjoy
The home features hardwood floors, a wood burning fireplace, original built-ins and bookcases for you to start your own library, electrical and plumbing upgrades, a new roof and a just finished painted exterior. In fact, I cannot think of anything there is to do. How many houses have you looked at recently that check all of those boxes?
The bathrooms are luxurious, the kitchen is gourmet with a Wolf six-burner stove and the fridge is Sub Zero. The screened in porch can provide hours of relaxation or reflection.
