The Garford House was located on the northeast corner of Oak Knoll Avenue and Hillcrest Avenue.


This two-floor Mediterranean Revival residence was located in the well-heeled Oak Knoll section of Pasadena, CA. The Garford House had an L-shaped plan, and was built at the same time as the neighboring house at 1132 Hillcrest Avenue.

Both houses by Marston and Van Pelt were located across the street and three doors west of Greene and Greene's Blacker House on Hillcrest Avenue.
