“The Glen Oaks Manor House”, is perched in a botanical garden setting, with quality craftsmanship, reimagined updates, seclusion and privacy. Nestled on the edge of a lush canyon resplendent with all kinds of trees and plants, overlooking the famous Colorado Bridge and Old Courthouse, and the northern Pasadena skyline. Rebuilt in 2005 and extensively remodeled in 2023, special features include ample parking space, views, double front door with inlaid cut glass, high ceilings with recessed lighting, teak wooden floors, large closets, elevator, hand crafted custom Italian carpentry throughout, special Enkeboll Lion carved fireplace, kitchen and other cabinetry. The kitchen has two ovens, twin sinks and disposals, trash compactor, pot filler, paneled appliances, a built-in desk, and a breakfast nook with bay window. There is both a butler’s pantry and a food pantry. The 2-car garage is extra-large with ceiling storage, charger and an entry to the elevator. The lower level has an open floor plan and three bedrooms, some of which could double as an office, den or work out room. There are two baths and a powder room on the lower level. The wooden staircase to the upper level gives a feeling of warmth as you arrive on the landing, and are greeted by two huge main bedroom suites, one of which can be used as a rec room, has high ceilings and a great view, as well as two additional bedrooms. The entire upper floor has a layer of concrete above the floorboards, which prevents creaking and speaks to the solid construction of the house. The house was built to be earthquake resistant, with a concrete slab resting on the granite bedrock, and the posts were bolted to the concrete subfloor. A shear wall surrounds the house and the larger windows are made of shatter-proof glass. The property is 1.23 acres, which includes an outdoor pool with its own solar heating system, separate from the 38 solar panels which power the house. The attention to detail and quality construction inside and outside the property make it an absolutely unique custom home, with close proximity to Pasadena city and all that it offers, but in a secluded countryside setting. Your oasis retreat awaits your presence!
