Step into this sanctuary and just feel your body relax. This is a rare find that only 23 years of loving attention from a professional interior designer could create. But let?s get to the best part of all: the backyard. There you will find such enchantment that only living in Southern California can one take supreme advantage of. Along the side of the house is a private courtyard with the soothing sound of a fountain. In the back is a patio eating area and an English garden to die for: 30 rose bushes, a Pittosporum tree, 2 Jacarandas, 2 Crepe Myrtles, 2 Meyer lemons, gardenias, jasmine, impatiens, several quaint bird houses, and ivy covered fences for privacy. It?s a miniature Huntington Gardens! Inside the charm continues. Before we go in though don?t miss the front porch where one can sip morning coffee and gaze at the San Gabriel Mountains. Inside, the formal living room has crown molding, a wood and gas fireplace and wall-to-wall carpeting. Beside that and off the kitchen is a formal dining room with a tasteful chandelier, crown molding, wainscoting and plenty of windows for light. The kitchen is immaculate with a breakfast nook, a vintage Gaffers & Sattler stove, refrigerator, microwave and plenty of cabinets. Off the kitchen is a laundry area with pantry. The washer/dryer is included. The first bedroom has plenty of closet space and drawers, plus a ceiling fan. The second bedroom has plenty of light and looks out onto the backyard, plus a ceiling fan. The den could be a third bedroom. It has closet space, natural pine paneling, hardwood floors and French doors to the private side garden area. The full bathroom was recently remodeled with classy wallpaper, new flooring and a beveled mirror medicine cabinet. There is a 2-car detached garage. There is a central air/forced air heating system, a 100 amp electric main panel and an attic fan with thermostat, all installed in 2007. The home was restuccoed 10 years ago, repainted 4 years ago, and the wall-to-wall carpeting is about five years old with hardwood floors underneath. There are automatic sprinklers in both the front and back yards. Go to www.1479NHardingAve.com
