Enveloped by beautifully landscaped gardens with terraces, fountains, and framed by sculptural California Oaks this split level home continues a Pasadena tradition of elegant California Mediterranean Style homes. Designed for an informal contemporary lifestyle, the open “living wing” incorporates tall ceilings and multiple archways that allow for continuity between the living, dining, kitchen, den, and outdoor spaces. The restrained use of Mediterranean details such as hand wrought iron work, Spanish tile inserts and contrasting dark walnut stained wood add to the elegance of this home.
The grand entry is through a stunning segmented arch complimenting the eight foot high arched French doors that open to a twenty foot high foyer with limestone floors. Elegant steps lead to a family lounge that overlooks the formal foyer and connects three bedrooms including the master suite retreat. The master suite has high ceilings, hardwood floors, clerestory windows, a cozy fireplace and an intimate shaded patio.
A patio with carefully detailed paving, trellis, state-of-the-art BBQ/Grill and low walls for a sense of enclosure make an ideal spot for entertaining. A few steps above another patio set among the trees is perfect for a fire pit and evening gatherings.
