Altadena’s Hidden Gem – Carriage House



279 Calaveres - Altadena Hidden Gem

279 W. Calaveras Street

I had an opportunity to see this property through a home buyer showing request, and what a surprise it turned out to be. I have never seen any home like this in Altadena. I would call it a “unique and eclectic.”

This home is nestled behind a wood fence,and surrounded by tall oak, palm and redwood trees. As you step onto the lush, manicured grounds; journey past the pleasant front lawn and pond with goldfish swimming freely, you would think you were in a secret retreat in Altadena.

Then, you come across a playhouse, workshop, large garage with sliding doors, inviting patio area, and finally “Vualla.” A charming cottage with two separate living spaces greets you. The kitchen is located on first floor and the bedrooms are located upstairs.

The kitchen has been updated tastefully to keep the integrity of the property. It is spacious, with a cozy eating area. You get the feel like you are cooking in a cabin, so to speak, it has that comfy cabin feel with today’s chef’s kitchen amenities.

Take the stairs to the deck, and a door takes you to the living room, which is comfortable with a thought out sitting area. Adjacent is a petite bedroom that would be perfect for a den/office. The master is roomy with many windows offering majestic views looking out to the trees, it feels very mystical, and relaxing.

The home has been meticulously kept by the current owner. The property shows outstandingly well – great craftsmanship and preservation of home is evident.

Features:

□ Built 1914

□ 2 Bed and 1.5 Bathrooms

□ Hot Tub

□ Living area 1,093 SF (taped)

□ 2 Car Garage

□ Lot size 10,100 SF

□ $389,000

 

This unique Craftsman cottage was originally built as caretaker’s quarters for the 2 acre Beals Ranch. It’s in great condition, and truly feels like a custom built cabin.

The main house entry also has a wonderful large patio that will entice you to eat outdoors. Other features include an outdoor Jacuzzi, hammock areas, and garden.

    When journalist Carey McWilliams first introduced the term Spanish fantasy past to describe the appropriation of Spanish and Mexican culture by newly-arrived citizens to California, he was, in part, making social commentary on the romanticizing of Spanish Colonial revival buildings being constructed en masse throughout Southern California. This image of California's Mexican and Spanish past of the early twentieth-century, however appropriated it may be, defined much of the regional vernacular architecture which continues to draw people to California today. Located at the base of the San Gabriel Foothills, this three bedroom, two bathroom house exemplifies the romanticized Spanish-influenced houses that emerged during California's golden era of housing in the 1920s. The nearly nine-thousand square foot lot is a tabula rasa for pool enthusiasts or horticulturalists looking to create their own outdoor environment.

Pull up curbside and note the drought resistant landscaping with custom watering system. Why not eat a fresh fig on your way to the front door with its gleaming hardware? The magic only begins when you step into an original 20's genre entry. The formal living room features a fireplace, window seat, coved ceiling, built-ins & overhead tortoise shell lighting. Gleaming wood floors beckon you to step further back in time and explore the rest of this home. A formal dining room with period built-ins and hardware is truly the ideal place for gathering with family and friends. Should you prefer a more intimate setting the breakfast room is ideal!

This is the one!
