MLS Remarks Read: Sold before processing. Entered into MLS for comparison purposes only.

Previous MLS Remarks From 2016 Read: Oak Ridge – The Clifford Barnes estate. Elmer Grey, F.A.I.A., 1912. Secluded behind a set of river rock gateposts, Elmer Grey’s talent as an exceptional architect during the Arts and Crafts period is well-represented in the two story Barnes estate. Located in Pasadena’s edenic San Rafael Hills, Grey’s design applies Craftsman sensibility and modernity as the once patrician western edge of Pasadena’s Victorian-era landscape transitioned into a new, modern world. Grey’s application of low-pitched, gabled roof and dormers, heavy use of wood rafters, wood-shake siding, and pebble dash stucco exteriors provide a perfect counterpoint against the architectural formality of the late-nineteenth century. Generous common rooms with multiple outdoor loggias blend well with the organic environment of the 1.6 acre lot. Mills Act approved in 2015. 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, studio, 3 car garage, finished basement/entertainment room, pool.

“During the first two months of the year, home-price growth continued to decelerate. This is the opposite of what we saw the last two years when price growth accelerated early. With the Federal Reserve’s announcement to keep short-term interest rates where they are for the rest of the year, we expect mortgage rates to remain low and be a boost for the spring buying season. A strong buying season could lead to a pickup in home-price growth later this year.” – Frank Nothaft
