Property Description for 745 Rio Grande Street, Pasadena, CA 91104

This charming Colonial Revival cottage is a City Landmark and a true treasure-trove of Batchelder tile. F.L. ''Bud'' Compton, Batchelder's chief colorist and assistant, commissioned its construction in 1916 using the ''Pasadena'' plan by the Aladdin Company of BayCity, Michigan. During the 63 years that Compton lived here, he enhanced the house and gardens with many wonderfully designed and colored tiles. Ernest Batchelder reportedly created the fireplace himself as a wedding gift to Compton and his bride. The classic floor plan features three bedrooms, two and three-quarter baths, eat-in kitchen, dining room, den and a sunroom filled with Batchelder's delightful animal and plant motifs. The adjacent paved patio has an enchanting Batchelder fountain and brick pathways that lead to the spacious back yard. Picturesque grounds offer intimate seating areas, formal plantings and ample room for gardening, as well as Compton's workshop and garage. Period details -- hardwood floors, built-in cabinetry, rich moldings, multi-pane wood windows and lathe and plaster walls -- are found throughout. Recent upgrades include professional landscaping, 200 amp electrical panel and central heat & air. Here is a rare opportunity to own a very warm, inviting and historic home.
