This stunning 1918 Prairie Revival, designed by acclaimed architect A. Burnside Sturges, has been impeccably restored and is located in the picturesque Country Club neighborhood of Altadena. The gated estate, sited on over half an acre, has been extensively renovated to marry period grace with the character details and modern amenities of today. As you enter, you will note the exemplary construction coupled with a pristine level of preservation.

The residence showcases its Arts and Crafts style with its green clay tile roof, wide, welcoming porte-cochere with step-up patio, rich, crown moldings, cross beam ceilings, hardwood floors, a tall, decorative Batchelder fireplace, a center, light-filled atrium, and a handcrafted, one-of-a kind, stained glass front door. The house has four bedrooms and two baths including an expansive primary suite that has an adjoining room that is an ideal office, library or fitness space.

The heart of the home, however, is a gorgeous, state-of-the-art, gourmet kitchen with deep cobalt cabinetry, high-end appliances, including a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Wolf range, a hammered zinc range hood, a sweeping breakfast bar and counters done in thick, solid, black walnut butcher block. This is a true chef’s dream! The single level property includes an elegant dining room, with incredible fixtures, that opens out to the back porch that steps down to the serene blue pool, as well as a magnificent urban retreat that is done using regenerative organic farming to offer opportunities for farm to table living at its finest.

The garden and landscape of the 25,089 parcel is unparalleled. The shade-dappled yard has been laid out with a masterful hand to create a zen-like, private oasis with meandering stone paths, old growth trees, planted berms, trickling water features, including a stacked masonry pond, a jacuzzi tucked under the Deodars, a variety of fruits and vegetables, raised beds, as well a spacious chicken coop and run. This is a hen haven! Don’t miss this stately beauty in the foothills of our wonderful community that offers an amazing opportunity to live in historic splendor.
