This lovingly updated classic 1929 Mediterranean Spanish style home, located near the Altadena Town and Country Club, offers 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths and 4,910 SF of elegant living space on a 19,350 SF lot. Enter through a stunning rotunda foyer with classic hexagon tile flooring. Above, you will see a charming wrought-iron interior Juliette balcony. The spacious step-down formal living room exudes architectural beauty, featuring a high stenciled beamed ceiling, great natural light, beautiful hardwood floors, a fireplace, and original wall sconces, curtain rods and a stained glass window.
These first impressions set the tone for the amazing detail throughout. French doors in the family room open onto a covered balcony patio and the dining room has an arched entry and an arched window both providing wide valley vistas. The home has a charming library with a fireplace.
The updated kitchen is a chef’s dream, complete with a large center island, top of-the-line cabinetry, hard wood floors, and built-in high-end appliances. The adjacent breakfast room overlooks the rear yard through the bay window and is bathed in warm morning light. Down a hallway off of the kitchen is an en-suite bedroom with a built-in desk, currently used as an office.
The staircase leading upstairs is adorned with colorful original Spanish tile on the risers. The upper level also enjoys great natural light, hard wood floors, and original wall sconces throughout. The large en-suite primary boasts a balcony off of French doors with a spectacular city view. Two additional bedrooms on this level share a large full bath with a tub and separate shower.
The lower level centers around a second family room with French doors that open onto the rear yard. It is designed for entertainment. With a wet-bar and refrigerator, a large television, built-in cabinets, fireplace, and bookshelves for game storage, it is the perfect place to watch the game. Also on the lower level is a 5th bedroom and an updated ¾ bath, an oversized laundry room with brand new washer and dryer and beautiful built-in cabinets.
The grounds are lovely, with many mature trees, including a large avocado and a Meyer lemon, privacy hedges, and a raised vegetable garden. A long, gated concrete driveway leads to a 570 SF, 3-car garage with a workshop. Next to the garage is a fenced yard for dogs. There is a spacious grassy area and a large lit sport-court offering many options for outdoor activities and recreation, including pickleball!
