Home of the Week: Altadena Mid-Century Traditional with Views

211 W. Poppyfields Dr., Altadena, CA 91001
Published on Mar 5, 2024

On a rambling corner lot at the base of Altadena’s famed Mount Lowe, this mid-century traditional home offers lifestyle with a show-stopping view. Velvety green grass and a curving cross rail fence compliment the stucco and wood clapboard siding original to this c. 1951 property.


Inside, beautifully refinished narrow plank oak floors and custom crown molding define this elegantly comfortable 3 bedroom home. She is the gem of the neighborhood selected by the original developer as his personal residence.

The floor plan here creates the perfect flow: the generous living room just off the entry boasts a stacked brick fireplace with a handsome mantle and fluted pilaster surround. West-facing picture and sash windows bathe this space and the adjoining dining room in natural light.

A mid-century throwback detail: double pocket doors separating the living and dining rooms, as well as another separating dining from kitchen are functional and fun.

The kitchen, with original diamond tiled countertops, charming red pencil liner and detailed millwork, offers evidence of how well this home has been maintained and loved. Don’t miss the stellar mountain view from the breakfast nook!

Through hallways lined with 1950s built-in cabinetry, find the three bedrooms – each with pretty garden views and additional storage. The full bath, with quintessential 1950s tile and geometric porcelain basin sink plus separate tub and shower, is in excellent condition. Nice sized laundry/mud room conveniently off the kitchen offers plenty of storage, a walk in pantry and half bath.

Outside, the fully fenced backyard is ideal for entertaining, play and quiet enjoyment, with covered patio, grill area, plenty of grassy space and an upper terrace with fire pit area. The two car garage with door to the backyard offers ease and ADU potential.


With quick access to trails, coffee shops, parks and transportation, the Altadena lifestyle is yours.
