Here’s an intriguing live-work-style residence that offers plenty of possibilities to potential buyers. Per the listing, the lovely Spanish-style home has been home to an iron works studio, pottery business, and antique store since its construction in 1927.
Spread across 4,397 square feet of floor area, the eastern Pasadena property includes a large ground-floor studio attached to a two-story residence. The studio space opens to a long portico and tranquil courtyard shaded by trellises.
Interior features include tile floors, beamed and vaulted ceilings, stained glass windows, and multiple fireplaces. Ornamental wrought iron fixtures can be found throughout the compound.
The residential portion of the property has three bedrooms, a full bathroom, and two partial baths. A large balcony extends along the side of the second level, providing views into the courtyard.
Situated on a 6,019-square-foot lot, the property also includes a two-car garage and a bit of drought-tolerant landscaping fronting the studio.
Asking price is $1.2 million.
