Arroyo Property of the Week - Open Super Bowl Sunday

No other property lifestyle symbolizes Arroyo Culture more than the quintessential Bungalow Courtyard.

Now, a rare opportunity to own one of these adorable bungalows in Pasadena has arrived, blending the best of history recognized by a National Register of Historic Places Designation with the finest in modern amenities.

This new-to-the-market charmer was designed by renowned architect Cyril Bennett, AIA, circa 1915, during the era of the California Arts & Crafts Movement.

Totally restored, refreshed and updated with a modern kitchen and bath, 291 N. Garfield Avenue, Pasadena, is a two bedroom, one bath bungalow of 792 square feet on a 1792 square foot lot, with private back patio.

Listed at an affordable $344,500 (not a misprint!), this cozy retreat boasts an amazing 92 walkability score due to its proximity to Pasadena City Hall, the Central Library, Paseo Colorado and Old Pasadena. Ditch your car (although you can rent a monthly parking space behind the bungalows for $80 a month) and bicycle through one of California's prettiest cities the way that Albert Einstein once did. Pasadena's terrific bicycle culture means convenient bike racks and bicycle access to the nearby Memorial Park Gold Line Rail Station, whisking you to Downtown Los Angeles and other work and play destinations.

Can't wait to see this gem? No need to worry!

Stop by its first public viewing on Sunday, February 6th from 12 noon to 3:00pm. I'll be there to show this darling home to you. Yes, it's Super Bowl Sunday, so you can both house shop, then stroll down to the YardHouse in Paseo Colorado to watch the game at 3:30pm.

291 N. Garfield is the perfect place for a sustainable lifestyle: historical details+modern amenities+walkability+affordability in highly desirable Pasadena. Stop by and see for yourself!


  1. Wow! Now, that does seem affordable! Is it still available??

  2. Believe it or not, this cutie is still available and will open this Sunday, February 20th from 1-4pm.


Please be civil, brief, and relevant. Thank you!
