$2.5 Million Homes in New York, California and Georgia

By Julie Lasky

WHAT A 1930s Tudor-style home with four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms

HOW MUCH $2.539 million

SIZE 3,492 square feet

PRICE PER SQUARE FOOT $727

SETTING The home is in a historic area once occupied by large estates and still known for its spacious, tree-filled properties. The Altadena Town and Country Club is across the street, and downtown Los Angeles about half an hour away.

INDOORS Bought by an investor last year, the home was thoroughly remodeled, with updated mechanical systems, an enlarged kitchen, a reconfigured master suite and a new backyard mahogany-wood deck. Many original features were preserved, including the oak hardwood floors, most doors and windows, and a brick chimney that rises some 20 feet to the top of the living room’s beamed, vaulted ceiling and is marked with a coat of arms.

The new kitchen was created by merging the original kitchen, breakfast room, laundry room and butler’s pantry. It has custom cabinets and Carrara marble countertops, and flows into a family room that connects to the dining room. Glass doors open to the backyard patio. Behind the kitchen is a bedroom with a three-quarter bathroom. The main floor also has a study and a powder room.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a dressing room and enlarged bathroom, created with space borrowed from an adjacent room. Two additional bedrooms — one with French doors opening to a balcony overlooking a sycamore tree — share a bathroom. There is also a laundry room.

OUTDOOR SPACE The .34-acre property is gated and has a circular driveway newly surfaced with decomposed granite. The porte cochère next to the attached two-car garage could be used as a sheltered seating area. The multilevel backyard deck includes an outdoor kitchen.
