Year Built: 1940
A dramatic backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains and mature scenery frames the magnificent setting for this superb Mediterranean revival located in Altadena's premier estate area. Home to a celebrity musician since 2007, this 1940's property was rebuilt and designed in 2005 by Franco Noravian, AIA. Blending old world charm with modern amenities, thoughtful attention to quality finishes are showcased by rich hardwood floors, deep crown moldings and wainscoting. The two-story entry welcomes you to a practical floor plan featuring a grand staircase, formal living room with box-beamed ceiling and an open concept fireplace with the adjoining formal dining room. The gourmet kitchen includes a breakfast nook with built-in seating, large pantry, built-in desk, and island. The kitchen opens to a family room with soaring ceilings, fireplace, wet bar and a large entertainment center with surround sound. French doors lead to a delightful patio with arbor and paver tile and a large rear yard. The home offers a total of 5 bedrooms plus a 6th that has been transformed into a massive closet with built-ins. 2 bedrooms are featured downstairs, each with dedicated baths. Additionally, there is a separate library office handsomely adorned with wood wainscoting.
