The lovingly restored Miss Ida Hawes house was a featured home on the
2014 Pasadena Heritage Craftsman Weekend Home Tour.

This home has been brought from historical 1911 traditional to 2014 luxury lifestyle.

Three bedrooms, two baths, living room, dining room, den, kitchen with eat-in area and upstairs office complete the main living areas.  Both bathrooms have been updated with the highest quality building materials, new plumbing, and one bath even features an old style copper soaking tub...however, the shower is oversized and the hardware is all the newest style.

The Miss Ida Hawes home is remarkably unchanged from 1911, except the current owner has put her heart and soul into every detail of her pride and joy.  Every spare inch has been used to add storage, update bathrooms, install a washer & dryer and improve the flow of the house.

The current owners’ upgrades include:  new electrical, central air and heat, rebuilt chimney from the ground up, new roof, new siding, tankless water heaters, and remodeled bathrooms with heated floors.

All the original Craftsman-style details have been either restored or added.  The Batchelder-inspired fireplace is from Mission Tile, the hardwood floors have been refinished and all of the built-ins have been restored to look as they did when the home was built.  There has been no expense spared in all of the light fixtures, hardware, tiles, and upgrades that have been added.

The lush, exotic backyard has a bamboo forest that brings to mind the gardens of Japan, but also features a barbeque area and alfresco dining. There is a bonus room that has a zen-like feel and resembles the homes of rural Japan.  A large modern bath completes this restive retreat.
 
For the truly disconcerting Craftsman enthusiast this house is your answer...so come on home...
