Southern California luxury beckons with this contemporary, one owner home in the prestigious Linda Vista neighborhood. Perfectly positioned away from the street, the home’s design reflects a Frank Lloyd Wright prairie house style with its low roof lines and overhanging rafter tails. The front yard is anchored by a stately pine tree and circular driveway leading to an inviting walkway and entrance. Step through the stately double doors and gaze across the relaxing sunken living room with brick fireplace through the sliding glass doors to the sparkling swimming pool. The open floor plan leads from the spacious living room to the formal dining room, featuring a new stylish pendant chandelier, wood chair rail around the perimeter and swinging door into the kitchen. The bright kitchen has an abundance of freshly painted cabinets with new hardware, vinyl Sacramento Pine plank flooring with a sophisticated matte dark wood finish, double porcelain sink with a filtered water tap, and a new pendant light fixture over the butcher block island. Across the breakfast bar is an informal eating area with generous pantry cupboards and a nearby desk area and laundry closet. Kitchen appliances include a trash compactor, stove top range, microwave, oven and dishwasher. Just down the hall, off the entrance is a powder room with updated lighting, freshly painted cabinets, and new sink fixtures, hardware and flooring. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family room with sliding glass doors leading to the deck and backyard. The four bedrooms are smartly located in the south wing of the home, connected by a wide hallway with abundant linen cabinets and folding counter. Each bedroom has wall-to-wall closet space and a large, sliding glass window. The full bathroom in the hallway features double sinks, a ceramic tile counter, a large framed mirror, new pendant lights, freshly painted cabinets, new flooring and a shower over the bathtub enclosed by glass sliding doors. At the end of the hallway is the spacious master suite, placed in the most private corner of the home. The suite features a sizeable walk-in closet and an equally large full bathroom with double sinks, ceramic tile counters, framed mirror, new pendant lights, tile shower and luxurious soaking tub. Step through the master bedroom sliding glass doors to the professionally landscaped backyard with relaxing pool and hot tub. The home wraps around an ample backyard patio area shaded by an awning and lush Carrotwood trees. The fully fenced and private backyard features a 100 sq. ft. potting shed, which could be converted to a changing room or art studio. The attached 612 sq. ft. 3-car garage features a work center, storage cabinets and a loft area for extra storage. This well cared-for home includes new carpet, copper plumbing, hot water recirculation system, central air/heat installed 2006, automatic sprinkler system, and automatic garage doors. Conveniently located near freeways, the Rose Bowl, Brookside Country Club, the Pasadena Aquatic Center and Old Town Pasadena, this beautiful home offers sophisticated urban living paired with the privacy of a deluxe retreat.
