Spanish Colonial Revival Home Designed by Herbert R. Brewster, Located in Altadena

1691 Meadowbrook Road, Altadena, CA, 91001
Published on Aug 7, 2020

Designed in 1932 by architect Herbert R. Brewster and situated on a large elevated corner lot, this architecturally significant Spanish Colonial Revival home exudes quality, charm and character. Located blocks from the Altadena golf course, hiking trails and Altadena Town and Country Club, this home boasts many original features such as hardwood floors, custom tile work and chandeliers, yet also has been thoughtfully and tastefully updated. As you approach the front veranda, notice the built-in shelves either side of the stately front door. Enter through the spacious tiled foyer to find a grand living room with a wood-burning fireplace, cathedral beamed ceiling, hardwood floors, and French doors leading to a secluded patio with mountain views.

The original wood-paneled formal dining room is bathed in light from a beautiful arched window allowing views to the front garden. The adjacent breakfast room has a tiled floor, built-in shelves, and garden views. The kitchen was completely remodeled in 2019 and was designed with the home chef in mind featuring custom cabinets, ample counters of Brazilian quartzite, high-end appliances, a farmhouse sink, and Sub-Zero fridge/freezer. Journey through the bedroom wing where you will find three spacious en-suite rooms, including a master suite – all with beautifully ornate tiled bathrooms and large closets.

With gleaming hardwood floors, wrought iron light fixtures, and fresh paint throughout, this home has been thoroughly prepared for its next owners. Alongside the two-car garage and workroom is a guest house/ADU, updated in 2020 with a kitchenette, ¾ bath, built-in desk, and private side yard that is perfect for a home office or guest suite. The landscaped grounds offer mature shade trees, fountains, patios, fruit trees, and raised bed vegetable and herb gardens.
