Real Estate & Architecture in Los Angeles

821 East Howard Street in Pasadena


A truly unique California, Mediterranean home, circa 1929, on a tree-lined street, built by noted Bavarian wood craftsman, Louis Steinhauser as his own home.

As you enter the home, the high ceilings with intricate hand-carved beams, wood inlays, fireplace and faux organ pipes tell stories of yesteryear.

Period details include arched Revival-style glass pocket doors that allow for indoor to outdoor flow, peg and groove wood flooring, and original light fixtures.

The dining area includes hand-carved built-in cabinets, ceiling and restored windows with direct access to a bright kitchen flowing to the laundry room and California basement.

The residence includes 3 generous bedrooms, plus a 4th currently used as an office. All rooms have their own unique features and details.

Both of the home’s bathrooms showcase original tile (Batchelder and Malibu-styled).

The exterior patio features an outdoor rock fireplace and deck area, allowing for multiple entertaining areas. The professionally landscaped front and deep, rear lot includes drought-tolerant mature, native plantings, numerous fruit trees, rose and herb garden.

Outdoor area also includes landscape lighting, sprinkler and drip systems, and mountain-views in a park-like setting. There is also a detached, 2-car garage with workspace and owned solar panels.

This home is truly magical and not to be missed.
