This exemplary traditional home in the esteemed Sparr Heights neighborhood was completely upgraded and expanded in the early 90’s then lovingly improved by its current owners. Inside are a bounty of improvements: 2” strip oak hardwood flooring installed in living room to carefully match the rest of the downstairs floors, double pane/double sash windows, tankless water heater and a palatial upstairs master bedroom suite, just to name a few. This home has a natural flow that is perfect for entertaining. Walk through the solid red oak front door to the spacious living room featuring a wood burning fireplace with attractive wood mantle, crown molding, recessed lights, and plenty of large windows. The dining area is accented by lovely mission-style pendant lights and attractive wood French doors leading to the spectacular mountain view from the redwood deck. The kitchen, upgraded in 2006, has recessed lights, a Kohler double sink with brushed nickel pull out faucet, a double pendant light over the stove, and custom wood cabinetry, including two pantry cabinets and a spice cabinet. The kitchen also boasts a stainless steel Jenn-Air 4 burner/convection oven, a stainless steel Jenn-Air fridge and a stainless steel KitchenAid dishwasher. The attractive vinyl tile floor compliments the solid Canadian maple butcher block counters and the cherry stained wood of the cabinetry. Beside the kitchen is the laundry area with plenty of storage and access to the backyard. Off the hallway is a full bathroom with separate shower and bathtub, pedestal sink with mirrored cabinet and large closet with a smaller closet behind that! There’s also a downstairs bedroom bathed in light from its two large windows and offering plenty of storage with a walk-in closet. Off the foyer is the staircase leading to three more bedrooms. The master suite has a soaring ceiling, attractive ceiling fan, new carpet, 2-way newly restored gas fireplace, cherry wood bookshelves, a walk-in closet with shelving and chest of drawers and an expansive bathroom redone in 2006 with Italian porcelain tile floor, claw foot tub situated to allow mountain views out the window, a walk-in shower with rain forest shower head, two sinks with marble counters and mission style mirrors, fireplace, wood linen tower, Mission-style pendant fixture, Roman shades and separate toilet room. The other two good-sized bedrooms feature plenty of closet space and engineered hardwood flooring. One has a study area and room darkening Hunter Douglas shades, the other has bamboo Roman shades. The upstairs hallway bathroom has a sliding door shower over bath, attractive faux mosaic tile flooring, new framed mirror over sink and new light fixture. The grassy backyard has a raised bed garden behind the garage with drip irrigation. The two car detached garage has shelving for extra storage. There’s also an attic inside the house for storage and recessed speakers in the living room, master bedroom and master bathroom. The home features highly secure Medeco door locks, copper plumbing, 200 amp main electric panel, automatic sprinklers and gutters. The Sparr Heights neighborhood has been compared to the town of “Mayberry” from the Andy Griffith Show because of its hometown character and “everyone knows your name” feel. The children of Sparr Heights attend the award winning schools of Fremont Elementary, Rosemont Middle School and Crescenta Valley High. Sparr Heights residents enjoy a short walk up the tree-lined sidewalks to the shops and restaurants of Old Town Montrose as well as the weekly Farmer’s Market. A short drive from Pasadena, Burbank and downtown LA, this lovely home offers the charm of a small town with the convenience of big city living.
