Set on one of the most prestigious streets in Altadena, this 1926 Spanish Colonial Revival is an elegant mixture of classic architecture and contemporary living. Enter the foyer through the original front doorway and notice the formal living room with high ceilings, a wood burning fireplace, and the original hand-painted beams, mantel, and bookshelves. Step into the family room where you’ll find a gas fireplace framed by built-in shelving, three nearly floor to ceiling windows with views of the back garden, and two sets of French doors; one set leading you to the front patio while the other opens to the back courtyard. Journey through the rest of the home where you’ll find a formal dining room with two sets of French doors and three over-sized windows, all with a serene back garden view. Walk through the butler’s pantry into the large, bright kitchen that includes a farmhouse sink, dual Thermador ovens, a built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator, freezer, wine refrigerator, and views from every window. Enjoy a casual meal at the over-sized, granite-top island or cozy up to the built-in breakfast nook placed in front of a large arched window. Head upstairs and find a master suite with a large, custom-built fireplace and three sets of French doors. Relax and enjoy the mountain views from the wrap-around balcony. Notice a large jetted tub, a makeup vanity, and double sinks in the en-suite master bath. Continue down the hall and find a bright bedroom that includes a tasteful built-in desk with an abundance of shelving, and a full en-suite bath. Further down the hall, notice a sizable bedroom and attached bathroom that could double as a family or exercise room. Finish off the second story with a large bedroom with a spacious balcony, an en-suite bathroom, and its very own private entrance. Travel to the west side of the home and find the second set of stairs, detailed with vibrant Spanish-tile. Awaiting you at the top, find an extra- large bedroom with two charming balconies; one through a set of white French doors and the other with a view that encompasses the entire back garden and mountains. With large, plentiful windows throughout, bedrooms big enough to incorporate separate sitting areas, and numerous balconies, you can relax and enjoy the view from almost every room in the house. This estate is situated on ¾ of an acre of meticulously groomed and lush landscaping. With grounds built for grand-scale entertaining, the three-tiered garden includes: a built-in barbecue and island, an over-sized fire pit, a newly renovated pool and spa, a beautiful greenhouse, and flagstone paths throughout, all with extensive views of the San Gabriel Mountains. This home is truly an entertainer’s dream. After years of attentive care, newly refinished hardwood floors and fresh paint throughout, this home has been thoroughly prepared for its next owners.
