    Description

    Ideally sited on a corner lot in the treasured Christmas Tree Lane neighborhood of Altadena, this 3 bed/2 ba mid-century traditional is punctuated with both charming 50s details and modern flair. Tucked behind privacy landscaping and framed by its Altadena Golden Poppy Award-winning garden, the home exhibits both form and function.A persimmon-colored door sends a warm welcome as you step inside the foyer and then beyond into the light filled, spacious living room. A seat near the center fireplace or from almost any angle will provide filtered views of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains, courtesy of the expansive front bay window. This room flows seamlessly into an adjoining dining room with striking wainscoting, juxtaposed against a contemporary focal chandelier, and also has a row of windows with easterly garden views. Gleaming hardwood floors guide you from one room to another.The home features 3 generous bedrooms, one of which is currently used as a den, and 2 lovely bathrooms.The newly updated eat-in kitchen features quartz countertops, charming tile backsplash, floating shelves, a new 5 Italian burner gas range, and a handcrafted brushed, dampening stainless sink. An adjoining laundry room provides additional cupboard storage, laundry sink and fold-down ironing board.An attached and finished former garage provides an extra 390 sq ft of creative bonus space. Currently used as an artist-at-work studio , it could also easily translate into a fun hang-out space, home office or fitness area. A retractable ladder provides access to generous attic storage.The exterior spaces provide both an oasis and a perfect backdrop for summer soirees. Ideally located from outside the kitchen, and shaded by a mature liquid amber tree, an expansive deck sits perched above the gently tiered backyard. Magical at every turn and a true gardener's delight, the space has been designed with various intimate sitting and lounging areas woven amongst perennial hummingbird butterfly plantings beneath the Aleppo Pine and hanging Staghorn ferns. Also included is a bamboo-shaded potting area, a private grassy area outside of the primary bedroom, a pavered area for your barbeque, several storage closets and a shed for outdoor equipment.As an added green benefit, the home has been fitted with 24 energy conserving/producing solar panels.
