This gracious 1939 traditional has been expanded and extensively renovated with good taste and a gentle touch. Situated on a truly amazing 23,102 SF flat lot on a quiet street, the property offers complete serenity, minutes away from Downtown Pasadena, and steps away from ''Downtown'' Sierra Madre. The house features a formal entry foyer, an airy living room with high ceilings, a formal dining room, an updated kitchen, and a wonderful library. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 -1/2 baths. There is a park-like back yard, with multiple patio areas, a pergola, and an outdoor fireplace. A ''garden house'' (currently used as a gym) adds to the fun. The property is steps away from Alverno, La Salle, and Sierra Madre Elementary School. Located behind gates, the backyard offers a secure haven where kids and pets can play safely. Many mature trees on the property enhance the serenity and privacy. An orchard of fruit trees provides a bountiful harvest. Southern California living at its best!
