This contemporary charmer has estate potential with over one third acre of land perfectly positioned in a quiet area of Pasadena, including blue prints for a second floor expansion and foundation ready to handle it. This home was designed by local resident Nancy Hackett who, in addition to making the efficient interior open and with plenty of windows, knew to make the overhanging eaves long enough to provide shade to the interior during the hot summer yet short enough to allow light in the winter. The home sits above a private road allowing a spacious view of the valley below and the San Gabriel Mountains behind, with a wrap around porch to take in the pastoral surroundings.

The open and spacious living area features recessed lights, laminate wood floors installed just last year, a glass enclosed fireplace, a dining area with new pendant chandelier, and lush views out of several large picture windows. The adjoining kitchen has plenty of counter space with onyx colored faux granite countertops, Maple cabinetry, a pantry, stainless steel double sink with new faucets, laundry closet, and a computer work space overlooking the side yard. Stairs lead to an attached 2-car garage and an additional room that can be used as a workshop, exercise space or even a wine cellar.

The large carpeted master bedroom suite has a large closet with mirrored sliding doors and a good sized bathroom with shower, dual flush toilet, new lighting, Kohler waterfall faucet, checkerboard tile floor and tile counter. The carpeted second bedroom also has mirrored closet doors and access to the back yard hillside. In the hallway is a full bathroom with new lighting, Glacier Bay dual flush toilet and shower over bath. The house includes copper plumbing, indoor fire sprinklers, central air/heat, dual pane windows, and a 200 amp main panel. The sale includes two parcels of land.

This single family retreat is cradled within the peaceful and exclusive Pasadena Glen community, which has been described as “one of the most beautiful spots in the entire Sierra Madre mountain range”. The quiet, serene setting with waterfalls in hiking distance and golf course in biking distance will appeal to nature lovers who also want easy access to freeways and shopping.
