Mid-century architecture and the backdrop of a sparkling pool synergize to create the utmost in coveted SoCal lifestyle here in this 1955 Altadena foothills gem!

Cool steel casement windows, stacked brick topped with wideline wood panel siding and groovy geometric motifs on entry courtyard gates welcome you from the street to this 3 bedroom, 2 bath stunner.


Quadrangle courtyard with fruiting citrus tree creates a real sense of privacy with the north-facing front door hidden from the street.

Living here offers indoor-outdoor space to nature flow to the highest degree, with inside living and dining rooms flowing seamlessly to their outside counterparts.

Each of the three bedrooms is equally desirable: the primary an en-suite 3/4 bath, while two others share a spacious full bath with soaking tub.

Bedrooms and hallway provide ample storage, with the two-car garage, just steps from the house via the entry courtyard, offering plenty of space for parking, storage, a studio/office or conversion to ADU.
