Landscaped with perfection, the blooming flowers, green plants and trees come together splendidly. I observed that the home has been professionally cared for over the years.
At the entry is a wide stair case with a wrought iron railing. Fine details such as arched doorways and crown moldings provide an architectural touch. The living room is spacious and bright. French doors from the living room lead to a covered patio area. There is sparkling, ocean blue, pool which looked very inviting. The backyard is lush with many colorful flowers, bushes, and trees. It is very entertaining to the eyes. Don’t miss the bonus/office. It’s a great spot just next to the pool.
The dining room is elegant and tastefully designed. The gourmet kitchen has an “eat-in area.” The kitchen island turns into a counter where conversation with guests could be fun while preparing your favorite recipe. The kitchen is roomy and a place where family can gather for a breakfast and/or quick lunch at the “eat-in-area”.
The master suite is a comfortable and spacious room with French doors and large windows. The updated bathroom is pleasant with ample area for sitting and getting ready for the day, or an evening out. The three bedrooms are nice in size with charm and character of its own.
Nearby this property, the new owners can enjoy Huntington Library, Lacy Park, Crowell Library and little boutique/stores on Huntington Drive. Old Town Pasadena, Caltech, and many other Pasadena venues are near by too. Call our Team to preview this home!
