Ensconced behind a double hedge on a sprawling corner lot in the Altadena foothills, this reimagined 1923 Spanish revival estate embodies quiet luxury. To enter this secluded property is to be transported into a verdant, private compound surrounded by lush privet, the sound of cascading fountains and a harmonious scene of warm stucco walls, terracotta roof, towering palms and the foothill vista beyond. Offering an expansive 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath main house, pool, spa, cabana and separate 1 bedroom, 2 bath guest house and 2 car garage, this country club adjacent property is truly a one of a kind. Boasting astonishing mountain views, this is possibly the best lot in Altadena. From the entry, charming details are both rustic and sophisticated: a stately veranda paved in earthy saltillo and painted spanish tile welcomes visitors with three south-facing sets of french doors. Inside, character-rich detail abounds, with soaring 9+ foot coved ceilings, grand double-sided fireplace with coveted original 1920s Batchelder surround in the family room. With hardwood floors throughout, the floor plan of this home is simply great: living and family rooms connect with circular flow and offer incredible north-south access to outdoors through walls of windows. Dining room with patio doors to the front veranda and windows overlooking the picturesque front yard fountain is equal parts elegant and comfortable. Updated kitchen with Thermador range and oversized refrigerator enjoys access to a separate laundry room. Just outside, an idyllic kitchen garden flanked by mature trees, including Deodar cedar and fruiting pomegranate, sets the stage for halcyon days. The east wing of the house includes a generous powder bath, two well-sized bedrooms - both with outdoor access - and updated full bath. To the west, find two additional bedrooms, both with ensuite baths: the south enjoys front garden access and the primary with doors to sparkling pool and spa. Heated pool and spa are gated and include 130 SF cabana with outstanding views. A separate, graciously proportioned (1013 SF) guest house with full kitchen, office/guest room with full bath, and spacious bedroom with ensuite bath and babbling fountain beyond triple arched windows. With finished garage, ample parking in paved areas, this property allows for easy entertaining - both casual and formal - as well as blissful quiet, private enjoyment. It doesn't get better than this in Southern California.
