Welcome to the Dr. Henry H. Sherk House. This is a unique opportunity to own a part of the Ross Grove Landmark District along the historic South Orange Grove’s Millionaire’s Row, across from the prestigious Tournament of Roses! Famous architect JJ Blick originally built the Dutch Colonial Revival in 1892, and distinguished Pasadena physician/surgeon (Dr. Sherk) later commissioned another renowned architect (Edward C. Kent) to expand the home in 1908 into its current spacious layout — 6 beds, 4 baths at 4,482 SF.
This old Pasadena Colonial is in the National Register of Historic Places. As a result, as of Jan. 1, 2015, the current owner obtained a 10 year assumable historical tax assessment which reduces the the assessed value of the home by 40%—CHEAP PROPERTY TAXES. The home was featured on television & Los Angeles Times on December 2003, and underwent renovation over the years (remodels in 1990, 2005, 2006, 2013 and 2017 included), but still showcases these wonderful old Pasadena architectural characteristics.
