Property Description

On the border of San Marino, in a prestigious Pasadena neighborhood, luxury awaits you with this breathtaking Modern Colonial masterpiece which is completely reimagined inside and out with excellent materials & craftsmanship and is surrounded by the large estates of Hillcrest Ave and Virginia Rd. While providing privacy & seclusion from the wonderful city, it’s only a few blocks away from the Huntington Langham Hotel & bustling South Lake Ave. The dramatic entrance leads to a large foyer, two story ceiling, and the grand staircase, highlighted by large windows & natural sunlight. The elegant open floor plan features two separate living areas that lead to the back patio which runs the length of the house and provides a beautiful outdoor living area. The massive gourmet chef’s kitchen has a spectacular island & plenty of custom cabinets, beautiful counters, & built-in Thermador stainless appliances. Adjoining the kitchen is a huge covered balcony, perfect for dining al fresco with friends & family as you enjoy the beautiful outdoors & tree top views. The spacious family room has an attached half bath & a gorgeous sliding door leading out to the patio. The other living area is adorned with a feature wall, a custom fireplace & another sliding glass door leading out to the patio. In the center of the two living areas is the formal dining room which is a beautiful focal point upon entering the home that highlights the gorgeous backyard through a large window. The library, which would also make a great office, is located in the front of the house with a glass wall presenting fabulous views. The Primary Suite is in a private wing with a fireplace and a beautiful shiplap feature wall. The Primary Bath is brightened with skylights & features dual sinks, a huge walk-in closet, a free-standing soaking tub, and a magnificent shower. You will find another ensuite bedroom off the main living area with a lovely bathroom. Two additional bedrooms are on the lower level with a well-appointed Jack & Jill bathroom. On the other side of the lower level is another bedroom with a private entrance & an attached bathroom that would make the perfect work-from-home space. From the circular driveway to the attached 2 car garage, there is plenty of parking. This very special home is embracing the finest example of true Pasadena/San Marino living. This home is a masterpiece that is not to be missed!
