Imagine living in an exclusive neighborhood in a home that offers a garden-like setting with grand views of mountains, trees and gardens and total privacy from neighbors. That’s what you’ll find in this four bedroom, three bath home in north Altadena, just a short drive from Pasadena’s restaurants, shops, coffeehouses, and nightclubs.
Spacious and roomy, you’ll find extra-wide doors, closets and cabinets throughout this home with an abundance of windows and skylights providing natural light. Three fireplaces create a cozy setting, set off by French parquet floors and fully-customizable recessed lighting offering a range of options throughout the house.
Designed for privacy, each bedroom has its own wing: the guest suite sits on the east wing of the home while two bedrooms and a shared bath sit on the opposite, west wing facing the mountains. The enchanting master suite, on the southwest wing, has its own entryway at the end of a central hallway with a grand set of 36” wide double doors providing a secluded feel. A fireplace sits at one end of the spacious carpeted master suite which opens, through a French door, to the back patio’s private seating area overlooking the swimming pool. Designed for space and comfort, the ensuite features a double shower, an oversized Jacuzzi tub, and double sinks, while another room offers a custom-designed walk-in with four closets, floor to ceiling shelves and drawers, and an overhead skylight.
Similarly, the kitchen is over-sized with its double ovens, a double pantry, built-in cabinets and shelves on every wall, and a central stove on a granite-top island. A breakfast nook sits by a French door with a view of the charming backyard patio.
A long hallway runs down the middle of this home, with the living room/dining area and family room/office area offering a place for the family to gather and spend time together with direct access to the fully-landscaped, drought resistant backyard. Along the hallway you’ll find four, extra-large enclosed cabinets and closets with pull-out drawers and shelving for linens and bedding.
All around this home’s 18,000 square foot lot you’ll find shade seating areas on different levels of the terraced yard. A grassy lawn with rock pavers leads to the lower level where a the tropically-designed Jacuzzi and fountain create a babbling brook that careens into the solar-heated swimming pool, so you can enjoy a swim all year ‘round.
Set in a safe and quiet, upper-scale neighborhood, this home offers a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city, while remaining just a few miles from a major artery, hospitals, schools, museums, and a wealth of activities in Old Pasadena.
