Pasadena Craftsman House

Pasadena Craftsman Homes for Sale

Pasadena, California is one of the greatest places to find classic examples of craftsman homes. These homes were built across the US in the early twentieth century, mostly between the years of 1905 and 1930. The great majority of these homes were built in California, and the state is considered to be the center of the architectural arts and crafts movement. California craftsman homes were heavily influenced by California cottages and Spanish influenced architecture, as well as the Bungalow style that was gaining popularity in the early twentieth century. These homes went on to help inspire the incredibly popular California ranch style home.

Pasadena home sales have always been high for craftsman style homes which can provide buyers with the charm and character that many seek in a variety of price ranges.

Craftsman homes drew on the rustic charm of cottages mixed with the openness of Spanish-influenced homes. Most of them were constructed in the bungalow style, an import from India, that was spreading like wildfire across the entire US. Craftsman homes feature exposed beams and wood outlined windows, with a signature large front porch supported by two wooden beams. Natural wood and stone is used extensively in craftsman homes.

Julia Morgan and Bernard Maybeck, as well as Gustav Stickley, are some of the famous architects and minds related to the craftsman home movement. However, the great majority of craftsman homes were created by people following plans to build their own homes, and using local resources to do so. As such, each home is very unique, even if they feature a similar layout.

California craftsman homes experienced a resurgence in popularity during the turn of the 21st century. Many people are now restoring old homes to their former glory, including fine details like stained glass windows and the use of natural slate. In the popular TV series Mad Men, Anna Draper, a secondary character, lived in a California craftsman home, which many place as being in the Pasadena area.

Today, there are many restored California craftsman homes on the market. These homes are exquisitely detailed and restored with historical accurateness in mind, though they do keep up with the modern conveniences. The great majority of these homes are still in the traditional bungalow style, though there are some more unique versions with full second stories and other features that break the mold. Many companies have also started building replicas of craftsman homes.
