Home of the Week: An ode to New England’s Shingle style

This charming Pasadena home, designed by architect Seymour Locke, is a pristine example of the Shingle architectural style, which was popularized in the late 1800s in affluent New England communities.

Dating to 1895, when Grover Cleveland was serving his second term as president, the two-story displays the fine craftsmanship of the era with its period built-ins and multiple original fireplaces. Outside, more than a half-acre of park-like grounds hold arroyo stone walls, rose gardens and a producing vineyard.
