Property Description

Designed by architect John A. Grundfor, this beautiful 1930 Spanish Revival is located in the sought-after Country Club neighborhood of Altadena. Sited on a flat, over half-acre lot, this home showcases vintage character and timeless design. Offering 4 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, a den, home office, and generously-sized patio, the home has been thoughtfully updated while retaining its original charm. Stroll up the pathway to the main entry, featuring a handsome original front door and travertine floors. With its soaring high ceiling, the living room is a gracious space to enjoy a wood-burning fire, take in the views of the San Gabriel mountains or enjoy the expanse of your park-like backyard. Spanning over 3,400 square feet, the living space of the home is well-organized, with a private bedroom wing and public entertainment space flowing effortlessly to the patio and rear yard. At the center of the home is the kitchen, which is open to the dining room and an adjacent sitting room, and provides ample counter space, a newer double Wolf oven, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a large peninsula. The generous primary en-suite bedroom features a walk-in closet and views of the rear yard. Original details include hardwood floors throughout and vintage tiled bathrooms in excellent condition. Wine lovers will enjoy your own grenache noir vineyard; a temperature-controlled wine cellar generously sized to hold ~1,000 bottles; a 3-car garage with one bay outfitted to process the grapes grown on location; and a standing-height basement storage area with a concrete floor. The long, gated driveway provides plenty of space for off-street parking. Updates include copper plumbing, dual HVAC zones, Nest thermostats, new water service from the street, a newer Spanish tile roof on the main house (approx. 3 years old), copper gutters, and a Tesla charging station. The landscape boasts a mature sycamore tree and palm trees, as well as orange, lime, yuzu, and lemon trees. Enjoy the convenience of the Country Club and golf course a block away, nearby hiking trails, walkable sidewalks, and all that this lovely neighborhood has to offer.
