An extraordinary real estate offering sited on the East bank of San Rafael Avenue overlooking the Arroyo Seco. Boasting breathtaking views, authentic mid-century design, and dual parcels, this unparalleled gated estate is available for the first time in 40 years. The principal residence is sited on over 86,000 sq.ft. of lush grounds. Views encompass the San Gabriel Mountain range, iconic Pasadena landmarks, and the environs beyond. The property includes a gradual drop, maximizing the spectacular vistas and providing a unique multi-leveled outdoor space that is nothing less than spectacular. Enter the private, lush property past the gated entrance, to find a magical wonderland of surprises. Extraordinarily green and inviting, the grounds seem to transport you to a refuge beyond, a hideaway. Verdant lawns and towering trees create an enchanting oasis curated with entertaining areas, undulated vantage points, and meandering paths--always somewhere to explore. Art is immediately part of the home experience, with beautiful exterior installations. This rare single-story compound, situated on a quiet stretch of the prestigious South San Rafael district, the residence, offering 5-bedrooms, 7-bathrooms and 6,255 square feet of living space, is as beautiful as functional. A long-covered patio greets guests, and inside, the home has been maintained authentically with impeccable timeless detail and condition. Tile floors lend an adobe feel, and glass walls put the priceless view on full display. The glass-walled living area includes an oversized fireplace, views of the resort-like pool, spa, and lush gardens, and easily connects to a romantic dining room. A wood-paneled library office with a corner fireplace features tree-top views and is another unique respite. The kitchen is spacious, with white cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances. Each bathroom and bedroom provide its exquisite design details, genuine to the period.A guest home includes a studio bedroom, sitting area, kitchenette, 3/4-bathroom, private entrance, and scenic views spanning from the Colorado Boulevard Bridge to the La Loma Road Bridge. An enchanting tree house is on-site as well--just follow the wooden footbridge to the dreamy nook full of imagination, complete with a slide and porch. A motor court with a circular driveway features a two-car detached garage and a three-car carport adds ease. This is an oasis that will continue to amaze and inspire.
