Home of the Week: In Pasadena, a home for mom

By Neal J. Leitereg

Known as the Ruppel House, this lovingly maintained residence in Pasadena was hand-built in 1925 by local builder Fritz Ruppel for his mother, Gertrude. Updated and restored through the years, the home now pairs its handsome beams and wood-burning fireplace with a kitchen modernized for today’s standards. Tilework in one of the two bathrooms is in keeping with the work of celebrated artisan Ernest Batchelder.

Features: Beamed ceilings; Saltillo tile and hardwood floors; French doors; living room with wood-burning fireplace; updated kitchen; master suite with private patio; courtyard; fountain/koi pond.
