539 Grand Avenue is For Sale

There is an Open House showing on both Saturday and Sunday.

For the first time in over 22 years, 539 Grand Avenue in South Pasadena is once again for sale. Built in 1949, this home has been thoughtfully upgraded and is now ready for a new owner to take stewardship for the decades to come. There is an Open House showing on both Saturday and Sunday.

539 Grand Avenue is a large 2 bedroom home with 2 bathrooms. Measuring in at 1,541 square feet of living space means that this home is actually bigger than many 3 bedroom properties in South Pasadena.

Located on the extra wide street of Grand Avenue and sitting just down the street from Trader Joe’s and Senor Fish, 539 Grand Avenue has high walkability. Grand Avenue is frequently used by locals as a walking and biking corridor which leads towards the Arroyo. This home is in the flat section of South Pasadena and affords easy access to shops and restaurants. The South Pasadena Metro station, the Farmer’s Market, Orange Grove Park, and Arroyo Vista Elementary school are all within about ½ mile of the property.
This home is well constructed and has a number of highly desired features including a large, flat grassy lot which measures 7,033 square feet. Other highlights include: hardwood floors in the front of the house, a fireplace, newly installed energy efficient sliding glass doors, wooden plantation shutters and an enormous deck for entertaining. 539 Grand Avenue is bordered by a private road as well, for access to the full sized 2 car garage from the back of the home.
To say that this home is “move-in ready” is an understatement. The current owners have undertaken upgrading the entire home including replacing the entire HVAC system including the ductwork. The plumbing system has been completely updated and a tankless water heater installed. The home has recently been painted on both the inside and outside. There is also a whole home security system and ring doorbell.

Although the house is turnkey just the way it is, there are opportunities for expansion due to the large flat lot, and the separate large garage structure which may be converted into an Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU).
539 Grand Avenue is currently being offered for sale with a listing price of $1,399,000. The listing agent for this property is Derek Vaughan with SouthPasadenaHomes.com and Dilbeck Real Estate. The home will be open on the following dates and times:

It’s on a premier street of magnificent homes within easy reach of Trader Joe’s, award-winning schools, restaurants, shops, parks, the Metro Gold Line and the Farmer’s Market.
