Haskett Court, located in the South Lake District of Pasadena, is a six-unit bungalow court. Placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983, it is deemed significant as one of the finest remaining examples of a 1920’s bungalow court in Pasadena. It was designed by Charles Ruhe for W.B. Haskett and his family.
As a development type, the bungalow court is a unique compromise between the traditional single-family residence and the more dense multi-family apartment buildings being built in the early 1920s. The Haskett family continued to own and live in the bungalow court until the early 1980’s, at which time it was converted to commercial/retail use.
In late 2007, HHP acquired Haskett Court with the intent to convert the units back to residential use and sell them to first-time, low- and moderate-income homebuyers. Rehabilitation was completed in late 2009.
The one- and two-bedroom units will be sold to first-time low- and moderate-income homebuyers. The homebuyers will receive additional low-interest financing from the City of Pasadena to assist in the purchase of their homes.
