Home of the Week: Idyllic 1927 Bungalow with Music Studio on Charming La Paz Road, Altadena

1836 La Paz Rd., Altadena, CA 91001
Published on Nov 9, 2022

Set back behind the leafy green of a wildlife habitat garden on charming La Paz Road, this idyllic 1927 Bungalow is exquisite. A feast for the senses from the onset, with peaceful sounds of a fountain and native birdsong in the colorful front yard, this special property sets – and then surpasses – high expectations.

Offering a perfect union of original 1920s architecture and artful considered updates, this 3 bedroom home retains original wood siding, cottage windows and hardwood floors. In the main house, living and dining rooms feature cove ceilings, while bedrooms offer crown moulding and lovely historic hardware. Living room is bright with tiled fireplace surround and hearth – don’t miss the stunning mountain views!

Dining room is elegant and warm, with built-in banquette seating ready for holiday gatherings. Kitchen features custom wood cabinetry, butcher block counters, earthy tile backsplash, apron sink and stainless steel Jenn Air, KitchenAid and Bosch appliances.

Full sized bath and kitchen have both been updated with character and style: bath is organic and luxe with gorgeous custom mosaic floor and stone countertop with rough-hewn edge.

The professionally designed hardscape and plantings create a series of flowing outdoor ‘rooms’ including dining patio, outdoor kitchen (with citrus trees in reach!), deck and spa.

This property feels like an artist’s compound retreat: garage has been converted to a music studio with floating floor, recording booth, workshop and half bath.

Don’t miss the spectacular mountain views from so many north-facing vantages inside and outside – from the front porch to the place in the shade under sequoias in the backyard.

The space here is simply magnetic — you won’t want to leave.
