One of Pasadenas most charming homes. Truly one of kind.This one-half acre lot was designed by the same architect responsible for the Huntington Library Gardens, the late Bob Ray Offenhauser. This single-story residence combines the grandeur of a Palladian-style home with the luxury and elegance of a grand Italian villa. As you enter the foyer of the home, you are welcomed by floor to ceiling windows with Roman style columns in the entrance. In the center of this 4 suite residence is a courtyard and a pool with new awnings attached to the sliding doors that lead to the space. Most rooms open directly onto the courtyard . Enjoy a bright living room with floor to ceiling glass windows that allow for natural light as you look in through the courtyard and pool. Both the living room and dining area have marble flooring and beautiful chandeliers. There are wood shutters throughout all the bedrooms.To the right of the courtyard, stands a separate light and airy studio with a fireplace, perfect for a home office. The gourmet kitchen sports granite counter tops and is designed with central island. Adjacent to the kitchen is the family room with a fireplace and a built-in shelving unit. Walking distance from Caltech and San Marino. This property has had a new roof, new paint throughout, new carpeting, as well as a new re-plastered pool. This elegant property was featured in the Architectural Digest, Town and Country, as well as Interior Design Magazines. Must see to appreciate. Listed by Sherry Tsao, Re/Max 2000 Realty.
