Secluded La Cañada haven in the Flintridge Hills

Custom remodeled to perfection, this expansive Traditional is wrapped in a sweeping panorama of the surrounding valley, the lights of Pasadena and the San Rafael hills beyond. Hiking and biking trails just behind the back yard wend through beautiful scenery all the way to South Pasadena.

Every inch of this fenced and gated 2,484 square foot late Traditional home has been tastefully upgraded to take full advantage of its elegant yet easy ambience. Surrounded by view patios on three sides, its indoor/outdoor feeling is enhanced by natural light during the day and soft recessed lighting everywhere at night. A wall of glass sliders across the formal living and dining rooms open to a terrace with a backdrop of hillside greenery. Sliders in the master suite open to a secluded garden patio.

The lovely kitchen has been recently redone with custom quarter-sawn oak cabinets, a farmhouse sink, and a seating nook with built-ins. A large island with natural stone countertop and custom tile floor surround houses a sink, wine refrigerator and counter seating. All stainless steel appliances except the wine refrigerator are by Thermador. The kitchen opens to a ceramic tile floored family room with fireplace, with a sliding door leading to the poolside patio. Another door leads into the rear patio. Three bedrooms, three baths including a full master and two three-quarter baths, and a laundry room complete the home.

In the landscaped yard, the jewel-toned azure pool is enhanced by trellised vines and a flower-topped stone wall. A cascade wends through the stones into the water. At one end of the pool, a cozy gazebo offers seating for two.

Off the driveway, a flight of tile and stone steps leading below the house begin under a large oak tree shading a tranquil seating area.

Central air and heat, copper plumbing and newer windows enhance the home, which is served by the high-performing La Cañada School District.
