List Price: $799,000 | Date Listed: May 19th, 2016
If you’ve been waiting for a unique building that you can convert into your living and work space, you found it! This one bedroom, one bath restored fire station provides a clean, industrial style home with high ceilings and large floating walls to divide each room. The 1,399 square feet of space provides plenty of room for you to customize the place to your liking.
The front of the building provides exactly what you’d expect – large roll-up glass doors that protect the area where the fire trucks used to live. The heavily tempered glass provides shading without blocking out all the natural light.
This view shows what the space looks like when you stand with your back to the roll-up doors in the center of the room. The living area offers tons of natural light, a huge space, interesting architectural elements and plenty of opportunities for customization.
Here’s another look at the main living space from a different angle. The opening just to the right of the closet leads to the bedroom and bathroom.
Behind the floating wall, you walk into the kitchen and laundry area, complete with a stainless steel skink and prep space. Hanging from the ceiling, you’ll see the station’s original globe light fixtures.
Situated between Pasadena and Arcadia, this Sierra Madre Canyon property gives you excellent access to the serenity of the mountains and the access to shops and restaurants. A major contrast to the hustle and bustle of LA, this area provides the perfect retreat for nature lovers and artistic types looking for a rustic, peaceful place to live. The fire station is just a half mile from the village – a charming downtown shopping district.
