Most people are fascinated by luxury real estate listings and sales. Last month, the most expensive luxury Pasadena sale was 1100 S. Grand Ave., in Pasadena’s coveted Langham neighborhood. I saw this home on Pasadena’s broker caravan. Although the home is sited in a heavily traveled street, the home is lovely with lots of character details.
Prior to selling, this luxury Pasadena estate was previously listed with the same real estate agent for eight months at $4,400.000. Relisted in April for $3,998,000 the home sold in eight days for $4,000,000. Interesting to note this buyer obtained a private money loan with just $200,000 down. This could be due to a variety of reasons: family member, loan from corporation, just to name a few.
MLS remarks read: This Pasadena estate, the Antigua house, is sited on a slight rise of Grand Avenue’s historic landmark district. The 1939 home is a replica of the 17th century Spanish Colonial Governor’s mansion in the city of Antigua, Guatemala. The house was featured in a 1971 Architectural Digest issue that showcased its history and connection to the original Antigua compound. This distinguished home features modern amenities complete with an idyllic outdoor kitchen under a grape arbor that includes a built-in barbecue and wood-burning pizza oven. The home has an expansive single story floor plan, secluded courtyards, exquisite fountains, luxuriant gardens, and mature fruit trees that all contribute to an atmosphere of a park-like setting.
