20,542sf lot

Set below the street behind a gated entrance and featuring mature, native landscaping, this 1952 built home offers a unique opportunity. This custom-built, single level home has elements reminiscent of renowned local mid-century architects. The long, paved driveway creates privacy and the front gardens are welcoming. Entering the home, the eye is drawn to the expansive backyard featuring a large, covered patio, sprawling lawn and steps leading down to a pool, a truly magnificent space for entertaining. The 20,542 sf lot offers ultimate privacy in Altadena’s finest neighborhood. 

The great room is the crown jewel of this architecturally inspired home, featuring a vaulted wood ceiling, clerestory windows, a striking natural stone wall and gleaming hardwood floors. The period stone fireplace, with raised hearth, underscores the mid-century style. The living and dining areas of this large room feature walls of glass and sliders that open onto the expansive patio. The large eat-in-kitchen offers a separate dining area that overlooks a walled front garden. The adjacent laundry room is oversized, and the half bath offers easy access to the outside. 

There is a separate bedroom wing with four bedrooms. Three of the bedrooms have lovely views of the backyard and share a hallway bath which features a deep, jetted tub. The primary bedroom was created years ago and features a vaulted, wood beamed ceiling, two skylights, a ¾ bath and access to the side yard. 

The layout of the home and the location of the large 2-car garage offer the possibility of expansion without altering the mid-century lines or the tranquility of the setting. There are stunning mountain views and proximity to the popular hiking trails of Eaton Canyon. This home is move-in ready! It’s location and expansive lot size offer an incredible opportunity.
