Historic 1921 Airplane Bungalow
Aptly known as The Terrell House to local architecture and design aficionados, the home at the corner of 1799 Loma Vista Street presents itself as a small memento of Pasadena cultural history with a rich background to match. Designed and built in 1921 by California native Harry Terrell, this home is an awesome example of an Airplane Bungalow with classic craftsman features. The second story of the home sits like a cockpit above the first story roof, spreading like wings about to take flight. Coupled with large mature trees, wood siding, and a striking wisteria this home is as beautiful as it is special. Formal living room with hardwood flooring, mahogany woodwork throughout including crown molding, and of course, no historic Pasadena home would be complete without a Batchelder tile fireplace. A large formal dining room offers a built-in buffet and cabinets as well as original leaded glass windows. Highlighting the main level are the unique built-in lawyer bookcases and fold-down desk in the library. Curl up with a book or conduct business in this dreamy space filled with character and period charm. Two bedrooms and two bathrooms along with a bright, kitchen and laundry room complete the first floor while the second level belongs to the en-suite primary bedroom alone. The 458 SF, one bedroom, 1 bath, living area, and kitchen complete guest house. With loving restoration, this house can showcase its true character and pedigree.
