Deasy Penner Podley Welcomes Partner Carrie Bryden

deasypennerpodley is excited to announce Carrie Bryden as a new agent to our Pasadena family.

Carrie developed her appreciation for architecture and design growing up amid the Victorian Gothic edifices of Louisville, Kentucky. The connection of architecture to the arts was established early in her life as these historic neighborhoods regularly hosted fine artists exhibiting their work and musicians performing locally. Carrie herself was born into a family of musicians. She moved to Los Angeles in 1997 to continue her career as a vocalist, enjoying success touring with Maverick recording artists The Rentals.

She traded touring the world for touring homes when she obtained her real estate license in 2002, after the birth of her first child. While living in Los Feliz, Carrie felt her love for the Gothic Victorians of her hometown growing to accommodate the classic California Craftsman bungalows, Mission Revival structures and midcentury modern homes of Los Angeles. Here, too, she was drawn to the neighborhoods inhabited by artists and the architectural styles they elect for their homes and studios.

As a REALTOR®, Carrie has earned a reputation for taking a creative approach to her own work, one that effectively complements the skills she’s amassed during 17+ years in the field. She is also known for gently guiding her clients, maintaining a patient and thoughtful demeanor no matter the circumstances, while remaining a fierce advocate for their interests. Whether you are pursuing a purchase or selling your largest asset, Carrie is happy to hold your hand.

A commitment to kindness and caring is likewise present in Carrie’s sense of responsibility towards her community. She participates in the common good by, among other contributions, supporting homeless women and children in the Los Angeles area through the Downtown Women’s Center and Five Acres.

The event, which will take place on Sunday, May 5th from 10am to 4pm, invites visitors to step back in time to a bygone era where “horseless carriages” cruised the streets of the foothill community.

1928 English cottage for $800K awaits buyer in Altadena’s historic Janes Village

By Marilyn Kalfus

Set on a knoll under a soaring Chinese elm tree, an English cottage on Marigold Street is one of the original homes that Elisha Janes, a New York transplant, built in Altadena in the 1920s.

The 1928 home is located in Janes Village, designated as an ”Altadena Heritage” area in 2002.

In their day, Janes houses went for $7,950-$11,000, vintage advertisements show. Today, the Janes cottage at 385 W. Marigold Street is selling for $799,000.

The one-story cottage has 1,250 square feet, with three bedrooms and a single bathroom. It still has the original tile.

A curved staircase leads to the picturesque front porch. Inside, a barrel ceiling tops an imposing, wood burning fireplace, and light pours in through double hung and casement windows. French doors, coved ceilings, picture rails and hardwood floors are among the interior features.

Bidding for this revamped Altadena Craftsman starts at $799K

By Bianca Barragan

Up in the foothills neighborhood of Altadena, the dramatic makeover of this three-bedroom Craftsman makes it look much younger than its 107 years.

Perhaps the most notable addition is a large, rectangular swimming pool in the front yard. French doors from the front porch lead indoors to an open communal area that holds the dining area, a living room, and a spacious kitchen with custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, open shelving, plus a large center island.

The master bedroom has its own set of French doors, but these open out to the rear of the house, where there are mountain views and enough space for another pool. (The property is nearly 11,000 square feet.)

Both of the house’s bathrooms have with new fixtures and attractive tile, but the master bathroom features a large, walk-in shower enclosure and dual sinks.

The 1911-built house also contains a number of very important updates that are less visible: upgraded plumbing, electrical, and HVAC systems.

The house is listed for sale through a plumBid auction, with bids starting at $799,000.
