With a stately look and surrounded by lush greenery and palm trees, the 7-bedroom home located at 1311 Hillcrest Avenue in Pasadena offers it all for the most discriminating of buyers.
As you enter into the grand foyer, you will immediately be drawn to the sprawling 25-foot ceilings, the stunning terra-cotta floors and the dual staircase of the home’s breathtaking entry way. From the master suite, which offers spacious walk-in closets and sitting rooms, you can exit onto one of several balconies to take in the mountain view.
Outdoors you will find professionally landscaping, along with a lovely brick courtyard that opens into a beautiful garden which features a reflecting pool and water jets.
Designed by George Washington Smith, the Father of Spanish Colonial architecture – who is also well renowned for his creation of many civic landmarks, as well as many private and expansive residences – this home was built in 1926, and it has been owned and lovingly well preserved by three generations of the same family throughout the years.
This one-of-a-kind residence also offers a formal dining room, three fireplaces, a library, and a Zen-like courtyard with a star fountain. There are also a number of updated features here – while still allowing for the presence of old world charm – including a newer roof, updated electrical system, and a newly remodeled chauffeur’s quarters. An elevator is also in place that offers convenience for both residents and guests.
With nearly 8,000 square feet of living space, this pristine mansion is currently listed at $5.8M. A private tour can be arranged for interested buyers.
