This beautifully preserved, carefully updated 1929 Spanish style home is a paragon of indoor-outdoor Southern California living. 1030 West Shelly Street is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to be immersed in a natural landscape while enjoying proximity to the conveniences of the Altadena and Pasadena communities.
Step inside the front gates and through the vine-covered arbor to enter an idyllic compound featuring a spectacular koi pond at the entrance.
The property has been updated with consideration to the environment and keeping up with modern efficiency improvements such as water-wise native landscaping, cool roof, temperature controlled attic-fan, dual-zone HVAC system, dual glazed windows and added insulation for energy conservation and soundproofing.
From the Saltillo tile walkway leading to the front door, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath home is equal parts relaxed and refined. Gorgeous hardwood floors and wood-framed doors and windows, plaster walls, and stunning custom tile work throughout compliment an easy floor plan with great flow.
The home’s perfectly-proportioned living room features a handsome wood beamed ceiling, wood or gas fueled fireplace and french doors that open to the west-facing covered patio.
Just off the living room is a light filled library, with picturesque views of the San Gabriel foothills.
The chef’s kitchen with stainless steel appliances and custom maple cabinetry is separate but still close to the elegant dining room with a second wood-burning fireplace, tongue-in-groove wood paneled ceiling and access to the wraparound portico with views of the garden and pond.
Primary bedroom is spacious with a sitting area and double patio doors opening to fragrant citrus trees and the calming sounds of the front fountain.
A second bedroom has windows opening to the private south patio and benefits from the music of an additional water feature there.
The third bedroom, currently used as an office, revels in unmatched views across the watershed and natural park. Updated baths fit with the resort-like feel of the property.
The property gracefully integrates an outdoor kitchen and dining room with wood-burning pizza oven and charcoal grill, wildlife observation patio, and raised-garden beds, among so much more.
Offering an utterly unique setting on a generous flat lot with 180-degree views of the upper Arroyo Seco and the 1300-acre protected Hahamongna Watershed Park.
‘Special’ doesn’t convey how truly sublime this property is — this is a home to treasure.
