Impeccably designed by award-winning De Veer Dickson Architecture, this extraordinary Pasadena home makes your luxurious indoor-outdoor visions come to life! Tucked away up a private road and a long gated driveway, the Zen-like setting blends lush foliage and beautiful stone hardscaping. A covered pathway shaded by mature trees and walls of glass leads to the dramatic double doors. Upon entering, discover an impressive harmony between the interior and exterior living areas, with a gallery of glass integrating the incredible natural surroundings at every turn. Abundant light creates a welcoming ambiance across the main gathering areas, where rich American cherry flooring runs underfoot.
Sensational city and mountain views are an awesome backdrop for the sophisticated living room, featured with a raised hearth and a double-facing fireplace. Soaring ceilings continue to the formal dining room, where deck access lets you easily take meals al fresco. Admire gorgeous panoramas as you whip up signature dishes in the gourmet kitchen, accentuated by unique wood elements that match the handsome cabinetry. Along with granite countertops, a large pantry, and a prep island, you'll have stainless steel appliances, including a warming drawer and a newer double oven and dishwasher.
On leisurely weekends, get lost in your favorite novel in the private study with a built-in leather window seat, glass desk, and walnut bookshelves. Elevate your relaxation with freshly shaken cocktails from the built-in wet bar. Unwind in the primary suite with its spectacular mountain frontage, bronze-coated skylights, cherry paneling, and soffit-mounted window treatments. Steps away from the infinity pool, you can dive in from bed to pool. Treat yourself to a spa-like experience in its double ensuite, showcasing a walk-in shower, a standalone soaking tub, and sauna.
A picture-perfect paradise, the entertainer's patio works seamlessly for hosting outdoor celebrations... especially on the 4th of July with fireworks from the Rose Bowl! There's a Lynx grill for the BBQ aficionado, a convenient sink, and multiple sitting areas around the fireplace. As a premium addition, a detached Guest studio over the garage, with elevator, offers privacy for overnight guests or as a studio/office with outside access. Other notable features include a laundry room with spacious storage, dual tankless water heaters, solar panels, a central vacuum system, floor outlets, double garage + carport, and so much more. Come see why the owners have enjoyed living in this home since it was envisioned 23 years ago!
