West Pasadena Classic Transitional Home
The W.L. Green Home was designed by Architect Kenneth A. Gordon and built in 1918 by the firm of J.H. Woodward & Son. Positioned at the northern end of "Millionaire's Mile" between Old Town Pasadena and the Gamble House, this highly recognizable home is set at the curve of North Orange Grove Boulevard-close to many of West Pasadena's most popular cultural destinations. Built of quality materials, this classic early California abode was designed to embrace its sweeping corner lot, and the result is an interior configuration characterized by the merging of unique angles in transitional spaces such as hallways, alcoves and storage areas. Offering a fantastic amount of living space (and storage) within a conventional two story floor plan, this home provides a flexible floor plan with a second story master retreat that also ostensibly serves as an in-law's quarters. The main level includes most original windows, hardwood floors, crown moldings, pocket doors and a fireplace likely attributable to Batchelder. An open plan kitchen is accessed through an authentic butler's pantry. A sunny conservatory room opens to the private back garden. The two-car attached garage provides direct access through the garden to the back entrance of the home.
