Inspired by the work of architects Cliff May and Robert Byrd, this 2,071-square-foot home sits atop a private drive. The living room offers an open floor plan with high open-beamed ceilings, a brick fireplace, and peg-and-groove hardwood flooring. The walls of sliding glass doors on either side of the living room lead to a brick patio and a 500-square-foot deck respectively, creating an indoor-outdoor flow. The original kitchen features wood cabinets, a large pantry and original wood-framed windows. The generous, light-filled bedrooms sit at either end of the home, each bedroom featuring its own bathroom, while the library/den boasts a second fireplace, sweeping tree and mountain views to the north, and direct deck access. The home's original details are elegantly paired with many improvements, including Anderson double-pane windows and newer HVAC.
The over 55,000-square-foot lot offers many vignettes among the mature oak trees and tranquil views, adding to the feel of a Zen-like urban retreat. Within minutes to nearby hiking trails and cycling routes, as well as the Flintridge Riding Club. Easy access to freeways, shopping, JPL, the Rose Bowl, and the beautiful Descanso Gardens. Situated in the highly-rated La Cañada Public Schools District and close to private schools such as Flintridge Prep, St. Frances and Sacred Heart Academy. This is the private tree top home you have been dreaming of.
