829 Rollin Street Offers Views of South Pasadena High School

Three bedroom and three bathroom home sits magnificently as a perfect example of South Pasadena's history and culture.

Perched on a substantial lot in excess of 20,000 square feet on a quiet street directly behind South Pasadena High School sits 829 Rollin Street. This 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom home (per assessor) was originally built in 1912 and has been remodeled and re-imagined for 21st century living.

According to the listing agent for the property, Mr. Christopher Hysell, the property has been significantly upgraded since 2012, “Originally a 1,406 square-foot home with two bedrooms and one bath, 829 Rollin Street barely resembles its 1912 original construction. The entire mother-in-law suite, office space, living room and three-car garage are all new additions – seamlessly blending the benefits of new construction with the character and charm of early-1900 homes. Since my client purchased the property in 2012, their significant upgrades to the kitchen, bathrooms and floors have successfully transformed 829 Rollin Street into an ideal home for families looking for a property that has a “homey” feel with modern amenities and impeccable craftsmanship. Additionally, a recent $100,000 back yard expansion resulted in removing large quantities of dirt and the construction of a retaining wall to provide a massive, private back yard area.”

The building methods and materials define this property as a luxury home, and one unique feature is the enormous view balcony which overlooks the South Pasadena High School football field and San Gabriel mountains. The recent rainy and cloudy weather afforded visitors to the property a truly memorable sight via the balcony – as white fluffy clouds rolled across the landscape (as seen in the video below).
