Property Description

First time on the market in over 30 years, this 1927 Tudor Revival two story Cottage is located on what was once called Millionaire’s Row. The Unincorporated City of Altadena is rich with famous Architecturally designed homes to include The Zane Grey Mansion, The McNally Home and the Woodbury Home, just to name a few. With an open and airy floor plan, this home embraces over 3,000 square feet of living space with arched doorways, 9′ ceilings and a fabulous wood/wrought iron staircase. One enters a small entry area into a large living room with a detailed wood fireplace mantel. On the first floor, there are three bedrooms, two full baths, formal dining room with French doors leading to the backyard. One of the bedrooms off the living room is a private suite with a separate entrance. To add to the charm, between the dining room and kitchen is a quaint Breakfast room and separate laundry room. The second floor has two bedrooms, one full bath and bonus room that could be used as a bedroom, office or study. This Cottage has retained its original character with a period basement and hardwood flooring throughout. Additional amenities include beautiful wood period closets, central air/heat, 2 car garage and a lot of over 13,000 square feet.
