Description:

Discover perfection high atop Crescenta Highlands. This country style ranch home with modern farmhouse touches is a treasure, starting with its welcoming front porch with farmhouse railings, echoed by the diamond cross windows behind. Inside comfort and spacious functionality continues. The marriage of outdoors and indoors is sublime with grand windows everywhere, most all recently replaced with Andersen double pane, Low- E, composite wood. These windows take maximum advantage of the magnificent mountain and valley views available on all sides of the house.

The living room, with its inviting brick fireplace (stubbed for gas) and beautiful hardwood floors, looks out over the pool and freshly landscaped backyard. The adjacent formal dining area with distinctive metal chandelier makes it a perfect space for entertaining. The recently updated kitchen has Corian counters, stone tile floors, silent Bosch dishwasher, range, oven, double sink with new pendant light above, under sink water filtration system, new recessed lights, and a 4-person breakfast bar with new pendant light cluster. The laundry area and pantry closet are conveniently located. Opening off the kitchen is the grand family room with expansive views of the surrounding mountains. Added in 2005, it features a refinished vaulted beam ceiling, a floor to ceiling Bouquet Canyon flagstone fireplace with sitting area, ceiling fan, track lighting, and access to the pool and backyard. The media area has TV wall mount and is hardwired for surround sound as well as pool patio speakers.

There are four good-sized bedrooms with spacious custom closets and ceiling fans. The 4th bedroom has its own separate entrance off the front porch and an adjacent, recently updated ¾ bathroom, making it a perfect office or in-law suite. Closets are plentiful throughout the home, including two hallway linen closets, both with folding tables. The full bathroom off the main hallway shows off a recent remodel with stone flooring, subway tile accents in the shower, Mother of Pearl marble counter with double sinks and light sconces overhead and Restoration Hardware fixtures and cabinetry. The centerpiece of the fully-fenced backyard is the solar-heated pool with retractable pool cover and removable fence. There is also an ample flat grassy area with surrounding flower beds, Meyer lemon and fig trees, and a pergola-covered concrete patio area. A few steps up and you arrive at a spectacular upper deck with a breathtaking vantage of the surrounding valley.

The 2-car garage has extra shelves and a newer Carriage House style custom automatic door and light sconces. Under the house is an expansive storage area with a sizable work bench. This area could be converted into an additional finished room. The driveway is over 100’ long for extra parking.
