Exquisitely remodeled 1925 gem "one of Altadena's most impressive estates"
Called “one of Altadena’s most impressive estates” by Altadena Heritage, this 1925 Neoclassical Revival masterpiece, completely remodeled in 2014, is a highlight of one of Altadena’s historic estate streets, Rubio. Beyond lavish wrought iron gates, the home’s covered loggia overlooks a sweeping front lawn and curving carriage drive. In the impressive formal entry, a dramatic Y-staircase echoes the symmetrical balance of the Neoclassical style. Highlights of the elegant 4,350 square foot interior include rich hardwood floors … lavish dentil molding and wainscoting … a grand living room with massive fireplace… and a paneled family room with fireplace. The formal dining room adjoins a sunny breakfast room. Kitchen amenities include an eight-burner Viking range and wine refrigerator. A bedroom/office and bath complete the main level. Upstairs, the neoclassical symmetry continues, with four bedrooms and three full baths set around a curved open landing with chandelier. The focal point of the grounds is a stunning pool area with brick patio and fireplace. A guest house built onto the detached three-car garage features two bedrooms and one bath upstairs and one bedroom and bath below. A fully finished basement offers expansive possibilities. With the spectacular San Gabriel Mountains as backdrop, Altadena is one of the oldest and most beautiful communities in the San Gabriel Valley. It’s nestled moments from Old Town Pasadena, the Rose Bowl and its amenities, including its famous flea market, and the Altadena and Brookside Country Clubs. Potentially eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, this architectural gem offers a rare opportunity to own a timeless treasure.
