MLS Remarks for 1330 Hillcrest Avenue Pasadena read: ONE MILLION DOLLAR PRICE REDUCTION. CURRENT MILLS ACT STATUS REDUCES PROPERTY TAXES UNDER $20,000 PER YEAR. Named among the dozen most architecturally important Heritage Homes in Pasadena, the Freeman House in Pasadena’s elegant Langham District is a magnificent example of English Arts and Crafts style. Over the last decade, recent owners have undertaken a multimillion-dollar restoration to return the landmark to its original beauty. The 1913 home was designed by Arthur and Alfred Heineman, among the most prolific architects of the California Arts and Crafts movement. Today, the impeccable restoration is reflected in every detail. Stone pathways wind through the nearly one-acre property, taking in views of the San Gabriel Mountains, an enchanting Japanese garden and a free-form pool, spa and Koi pond. Inside, glowing golden oak and African walnut are enhanced by rich period details. Highlights include a kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances and magnificent Craftsman cabinetry and a gorgeous Japanese-inspired guest house. Freeman House is both a masterwork of historic preservation and an incomparable setting for a lifetime legacy estate. Additional features include a 5 car garage, gym and wine cellar.
