This sophisticated flat is located in the Castle Green, Pasadena's famous 1898 landmark. Facing east toward the sunrise, with two balconies perched above the treetops, it offers sweeping views of the City and the San Gabriel Mountains. A union of two separate units, #405 & #406 feature a living room, a bedroom, and two beautifully updated baths in addition to high ceilings, historic wood detailing, two faux fireplaces and concrete floors. The tastefully remodeled kitchen has marble counters, stainless appliances, period fixtures and custom cabinets. In both the living room and bedroom, there are lovely Murphy beds framed in wood and complete with shelves, niches and storage. Amenities include the use of the Castle Green's public spaces, a 24-hour doorman and elevator operator, full-time building staff, and proximity to the Gold Line and the wealth of local cultural resources. Owners enjoy significant property tax savings as a result of the building's recently-granted Mills Act status.
Here can be found a sense of peace and refuge set in a prime urban location. This is a rare opportunity to own a very livable, secluded condominium in the heart of Old Pasadena.
The Castle Green opened in 1899 as the first annex to the famous Hotel Green. Architect Frederick Roehrig blended a number of styles to create what is now a stunning condominium residence unique in Southern California. Behind the front gate, the walkway and verandah set the tone for the world within: grand public rooms in near-original condition, lush gardens, exquisite detailing and timeless elegance. Visitors and residents alike enjoy a rare sense of our past centered in contemporary Old Pasadena.
