One of the original homes in the desirable San Rafael Hills, this carefully restored 1923 Spanish jewel, is set on an expansive double lot. The four bedroom, four bathroom single-story residence is framed by majestic deodars, draped in vibrant bougainvillea, and surrounded by lush, drought-tolerant gardens. Twice recognized by the Pasadena Beautiful Foundation’s Golden Arrow Award, the gardens are a study in both privacy and tranquility. The flexible interior spaces are equally glorious. A formal, yet welcoming entry leads to the elegant living and dining rooms. Old world craftsmanship and original architectural details include quarter-sawn white oak floors, coved ceilings, and mahogany windows and doors. Tasteful additions to the home include a luxurious master suite, spacious chef’s kitchen, dedicated office area, and laundry room. The private master retreat features a romantic sitting area with center fireplace, walk-in closet/dressing room, spa-like bathroom, and access to the lovely courtyard and back gardens. The rear garden, with views of the hills, is an oasis and lends itself to a variety of entertaining options. Linger on any of the intimate patio spaces or meander along the flagstone path dotted with herbs and an array of succulents. A private pool and spa area complete the picture. The property also includes a two-car garage with ample attic storage, an oversized motor court, and a generous side yard perfect for a dog run or gardener’s potting area. The invitation is extended. Come and make this hideaway in the hills your next home.
