This updated and upgraded home with owned solar is equal parts contemporary sanctuary and urban farm with fruit and vegetable plots, cutting garden and productive orchard. On private Hollyslope Road, with its emblematic Deodar cedar in the cul-de-sac roundabout: turn up the driveway to 3554, lined with a grove of mature apple, stone fruit, and citrus trees. At the top of a gentle slope, a majestic California live oak anchors this special property, with the comforting sounds of pea gravel under foot and trickling of the entry fountain. Fragrant native salvias and flowering yarrow line the path to a wide front porch, sunken patio with fire pit and seating area -- this is Altadena. Slate flooring continues inside, reflecting natural light from the soaring entry ceiling, windows and skylights. The floor plan flows comfortably, with public spaces feeling open - entry leads to living room and kitchen, with dining in between and a convenient powder room, while private spaces are quietly separated on the north and west sides of the home. Throughout, indoor and outdoor spaces are in dialogue: nearly every room enjoys beautiful garden views.

Two additional bedrooms are well sized with lofty ceilings - between the natural light and the volume of space, this home feels like a nice deep breath. In the backyard, the outdoor kitchen and patio are ready for year-round use with sun, shade and a pollinators garden complete with a sculptural stone fountain. A finished two car garage could be a workshop, gym or studio. On a lot measuring over 30,500 SF, this is a private hideaway just minutes from the farmer's market, coffee, wine bars and cafes on Lincoln. What an opportunity!
