This romantic and inspiring 1920's Moorish accented Spanish Colonial Revival residence in Pasadena’s prestigious Cal Tech neighborhood, designed by master architect Harold S. Bissner, Sr., offers 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms including 4 bedrooms upstairs, 3 of which are en-suite, one with a private balcony, another with dual balconies, and a third with its own private entrance accessed from a spacious veranda. Sensitively restored by its current owners to modernize its systems, the renovations carefully maintain and showcase the exquisite original features such as light fixtures, tile, art glass, hardware and carved wood doors complemented with added period style and tasteful new features. The remodeled gourmet eat-in kitchen, with design inspired by the original kitchen hood’s Malibu tiles, features warm colors, a large center island, soapstone counters, custom cabinets, top-of-the-line appliances and a butler's pantry with mahogany counters and copper sink. The generously proportioned kitchen is a central gathering point for family and friends. The public rooms include a gracious formal entry enhanced with original tile risers on the staircase, living room with beamed ceiling, fireplace and French doors, formal dining room with scalloped ceiling, and charming library with built-in bookshelves, mahogany ceiling, decorative fireplace and three sets of French doors to the private garden courtyard. The low maintenance grounds include a spacious private rear courtyard garden with built-in grill, original tile fountain and direct access from the living room and library, as well as an original walled side courtyard patio adjacent to the kitchen, providing a variety of indoor/outdoor entertainment areas to enjoy the Southern California lifestyle. A generous side yard planted with succulents and mature fruit trees and spacious grassy front yard could be enclosed for additional privacy. A final touch to this magnificent home is a beautiful finished 2 car garage with workroom and bathroom, ample storage, garage ceiling crawlspace and stain-grade, automatic garage doors. This home has been featured on a Pasadena Heritage Golden Age architectural tour because of its elegant design and respectful architecture. Attention to period detail and picturesque charm give this grand and comfortable home tremendous appeal.
