FIXER, FIXER, FIXER!  MAKE THIS YOUR DREAM HOME.  This home, appearing to have originally been a California bungalow, is situated in the highly desirable Marengo area of South Pasadena on a quiet, tree lined street among character homes.  At one point this home had a front porch but several years ago it was enclosed to expand the living room.  The house consists of a living room with fireplace and a separate dining room.  The kitchen area is adjacent to the dining area and is waiting to be turned into a gourmet kitchen.  There are two bedrooms and a third large room at the back of the house that can converted into a wonderful master bedroom or family room.  It appears to have been added in the 1930/40s and has a small room adjacent to it that has a sink and closet, which would be a perfect space for a master bathroom and closet and possibly laundry hook ups.   There are two bathroom areas, the first at one point was a full bathroom (now without a toilet) and the other a ¾ bathroom (in which the shower has never been completed).  There is a one car garage off the alley which does not have a car door and was being used for storage and in the front of the house there is a large carport.  The lot just under 9,000 square feet is a great size with potential to add more living space, revive the (empty) pool and use the blank landscaping canvas to create a perfect yard.  The plumbing and electrical is not in full working condition and will need to be updated throughout.  The roof was redone with permits in 2007 and is in good condition.

Overall the house is in very poor condition and not livable in its present state.  In spots throughout the house the ceiling plaster has fallen down due to leaks prior to the roof being replaced.  The whole house needs major work throughout.  The city does not list this home on the historical registry and buyer to verify how this may or may not affected desired changes to the house.  This is an incredible opportunity to make this a model home and take advantage of South Pasadena’s award winning schools.  This is a trust sale, sold in its ‘as is’ condition without warrantee or guarantee.
