Guitarist Adam Horovitz, better known as Ad-Rock, is now the proud owner of a 1912 Craftsman-style in South Pasadena. Horovitz recently purchased the Los Angeles-area home for $1.73 million.
Ideally located about 10 miles from downtown L.A., the three-bedroom, 1.5-bath home sits on a quarter acre of land in the posh South Pasadena area. It dates to 1912, and, at the time of sale, sported a scale-like shingled exterior in vibrant green.
The interiors sustain the homes period well; it dates to 1912, and frequently suggests a quaint prewar innocence, with plentiful built-ins adding coziness, and an emphasis on neat symmetry bringing formality to the picture. Visitors enter the 2,400-square-foot residence via a wide covered porch and move into a cozy living room accented with narrow-plank hardwood floors, a center fireplace, and built-in bookcases. Further inside is a formal dining room, and an eat-in kitchen that might benefit from an update. The 1970’s-era brass-and-brick living-room fireplace could stand a judicious revision, too.
From the dining room, residents can step out through the large glass sliders onto a private patio. The backyard is quite spacious, and features lush landscaping and mature trees.
Horovitz paid nearly $50,000 over the original ask to snag the classic Southern Californian property.
