A rare opportunity to live in the exclusive Brookmere enclave in southwest Pasadena. Pass through the private gates into the prestigious and desirable San Rafael Hills to a welcoming, single-story, mid-century-built home, perched on the hillside --a stone's throw to the spring-fed historic three-acre Johnston Lake. Picnic under sycamores in the grassy meadow, row or fish on the lake, and relax in the inviting oversized pool in a woodsy, country-club setting.
One of only 19 homes in an historic gated community, this traditional hillside home, situated on an 18,000-square foot lot, features two bedrooms, one with a dressing area and a full master bath and both with classic, built-in closets, an office or study, a lovely large living room with brick fireplace and large picture windows with north-facing tree-lined views of Mount Wilson and the San Gabriel mountains.
The galley kitchen has a breakfast bar and a pass-through door into the formal living room. Off the kitchen, the inviting, light-filled family room, with its views of the lake and mountains, could also serve as a charming breakfast room or artist's studio.
Beautiful hardwood floors throughout most of the home and some classic 50's touches in the kitchen and bathroom complete this extraordinary opportunity to live in this exclusive community and neighborhood. Listed by Colleen Bennett, Sotheby's International Realty.
