Private and commanding, 60s era modern sits on a spacious, verdant lot tucked away on a cul-de-sac in Pasadena's coveted San Rafael area. Thoughtfully and completely redesigned, there is seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. The open and flexible floor plan of adjoining living, dining and family rooms, framed with walls of windows and sliding glass doors, bathe the main floor with natural light. A corner fireplace can be enjoyed from all rooms as well as from the custom bar area, which bridges the space into the gourmet kitchen. The kitchen is complete with Wolf and Sub-Zero stainless appliances, open shelving, banquette seating, breakfast bar, generous storage and home office space. A powder room and direct access to the generous two-car garage complete the main level.
Upstairs, all bedrooms have an attached bath. The main bedroom has an ensuite spa bath with large soaking tub, rain shower, lighted dressing table and dual vanities and also features a walk-in closet and access to a large patio and herb garden. Another bedroom also opens to its own generous covered patio, now fitted as a home fitness area.
Outside, the terraced gardens and professionally designed landscaping feature mostly native plants in a park-like environment, shaded by mature oaks, Japanese maples, avocado, tangerine and loquat trees. Pathways lead to several intimate seating and play areas where tree-top views and sunsets can be enjoyed year-round. A large center patio complete with gas fire pit, concrete bench seating, built-in barbecue and fresh plantings, encourage relaxation and enjoyment. A Sonos sound system provides audio enhancement both indoors and out.
Chic, warm and welcoming, this home has been fitted with striking and artistic materials and finishes throughout, including bamboo flooring, lighting from Niche Modern and tile from Heath Ceramics.
Conveniently located to the Arroyo Seco, Rose Bowl, hiking trails and Old Town Pasadena and an easy commute to downtown Los Angeles, this tranquil oasis could be your welcome home.
