Property Description

This enchanting storybook English is located in one of Altadena’s most coveted neighborhoods adjacent to Christmas Tree Lane’s canopy of deodars. Featuring 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 remodeled baths and an office/den, this home is a wonderful blend of traditional charm and modern sensibilities. Instantly welcoming with its meandering brick pathway lined with tree roses, seasonal bulbs and agapanthus, the front garden was featured as an Altadena Heritage Golden Poppy Award winner. The yard includes species of pomegranate, apricot and Japanese maple trees as well as a large grassy area, soothing water feature, window boxes overflowing with cascading white geraniums and a spacious front porch shaded by a pair of twisted cypress.Upon entry, your eyes are immediately drawn to the distinctive coved ceilings of the delightful living room, a wall of French windows looking out to the front garden and a center fireplace flanked by two additional windows. Dark stained hardwood floors contrast beautifully with the freshly painted and light-filled interior. The adjoining dining room has French doors exiting to a covered side porch providing an extension to the outdoors and a place to linger. The updated kitchen with granite countertops, artful tile backsplash, newer stainless appliances including double ovens and farmhouse sink, overlooks and exits to the rear yard and also houses the laundry area.The private spaces include a main hallway housing the primary bedroom which has been thoughtfully designed with a wall of fabulous built-ins and spacious double closets, a second generous bedroom and a large remodeled full bath with custom tile and double sinks. A third bedroom with ensuite bath, as well as an additional room utilized as an office/den with stairs to a California basement complete the floorplan.The rear yard is peaceful and serene. A variety of citrus trees dot the space which features low maintenance decomposed granite, a tiered fountain, outdoor fireplace and charming brick patio. The long driveway culminates in a detached 2 car garage with plenty of storage and with its high ceilings offer the potential of becoming an ADU.Other upgrades include extended life roof, copper gutters, new electrical, new interior and exterior paint, landscape lighting, automatic sprinklers, Nest thermostat and Ring security. Cherished for many years by the current owners, this property is a wonderful place to call home.
