Starting out as a one-room cabin, the main room of this home centers around a stone fireplace and vaulted ceiling beams reminiscent of early 20th century California Craftsman style. Sited carefully on the coordinates of North, South, East and West, the house becomes its own compass and sundial as the day's light traverses the sky from its rising behind Mt. Baldy followed closely by the light of the Moon rising opposite the setting sun. Wrapping its arms over the cedar ''board and batten'' style building, the large cork-bark oak tree provides shade and shelter from the summer heat and a home to owls and doves.The fully functional river-rock fireplace has been rebuilt with its new gleaming flue and beautiful chimney on top. The back two bedrooms enjoy direct views of Mt. Wilson and South Pasadena's Water Tower as well as northern light filtered through a long row of high clerestory windows. Stars peek through.Some work was done to the major building systems in 2012 to 2013 including plumbing, electrical, framing, the removal of three previous roofs and installation of a new roof. The 3-bedroom house's board and batten cedar cladding is typical of the Arts and Crafts style building it is.The house still needs extensive renovations to put it in a livable condition and comply with city codes. The existing house is sited on a large flat pad with spectacular views that present several options for a discerning Buyer.
