Home of the Week: Resort-Like Compound, A Dream Made Manifest, in Altadena

574 Villa Zanita St., Altadena, CA 91001
Published on Jul 10, 2023

In the Altadena foothills amongst a eucalyptus grove, this property appeals to all senses from the approach. The nearly secret, private dirt road requires visitors to slow down and take a breath. Sounds of softly crackling leaves and rolling gravel lower one’s heart rate from the onset.

Analogue luxury and high vibes describe this resort-like compound with three unique, separate structures. Comprising 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, fire pits, saltwater pool, athlete’s spa, clubhouse and meditation studio, this property’s artisan-crafted elements reveal themselves as a spectacular whole.

Open the front door to reveal original jade green scored concrete floors and possibly the happiest living room ever, with windows on three sides, vaulted cathedral ceilings and working fireplace.

The living room flows into a thoughtfully designed chef’s and entertainer’s dream kitchen, with marble and soapstone counters, custom Wood Mode cabinetry, SubZero fridge and freezer and Thermador Professional Series range.

The first bedroom features Creative Woodworks built-ins and Marvin French doors flowing to the incredible garden patio and pool. Across the hallway, a lovely bath with marble countertops, custom tilework, European wallpaper and a vaulted skylight.

An additional bedroom boasting artisan-applied clay plaster walls, custom cabinetry and California Closets enjoys an ensuite bath with oversized shower and marble topped vanity. French doors open to a private patio with views of the Monet-like, dappled garden.

Finally, the primary bedroom with garden, patio and pool access from French doors on three sides is sublime, complete with antique pendant lights, walk-in closet and ensuite bath.

A eucalyptus tree watches over an enchanting meditation studio on the south end of the pool. Follow the Ipe deck to the transformed garage with vaulted, beamed ceiling and dynamic clerestory windows: the ultimate family-office-screening room.

Outside is a whole world: saltwater pool and oversized spa, custom-built Ipe wood seating surrounding a generous firepit, an outdoor kitchen including 42” Hestan grill, stainless steel sink and dining area shaded by a showstopping, custom Poggesi umbrella.

As you’re lulled into ”Be Here Now”, you’ll never want to leave this elegant, understated, single level shake shingle home with air perfumed by rose-scented geraniums, rosemary, lavender, and mountain marigolds.

To be at ease and in awe, to be in sanctuary and inspiration…the Fairy House is calling.
