Tucked intimately into an unspeakably beautifully landscaped site on a quiet Altadena foothills street this thoughtfully and lovingly restored late 40s quintessentially California residence bespeaks re-purposing, re-creation and restoration of a level of craftsmanship rarely witnessed in our time. Curb presentation is immediately captivating, with CORE GRAVEL™ drive and artfully sculpted ground-scaping laced with a lazy rocky swale and accented by kumquat, apple, Meyer lemon and dozens of other carefully curated plantings. If not adequately enchanted by the exterior, the endless interior details will amaze the most discriminating. Restored original redwood flows from and graces the exterior as well as the interior. Maple flooring glows throughout. Panoramic floor to ceiling windows and doors provide a seamless transition to the equally lovingly designed rear grounds. A sweeping rear mezzanine surfaced in aggregate and embossed concrete enjoys numerous keyhole views. A sparkling kitchen, glowing in aqua and grey, features built-in stainless appliances, quartz counter surfaces and open storage. The master suite with an amazing adjoining vintage bath opens through patio doors to an intimate deck. Creative spaces include a double garage conversion to full studio with kitchenette and refrigerator, an upper level studio/work area Recessed lighting, clerestory windows, fluted glass transoms, vintage tile and glass, vintage fixtures, re-use of original features combined with thoughtful introduction of the new, painstaking attention to detail, open areas and private spaces….the hand of the artist is evident everywhere. Home…yes… Intimate sanctuary…yes… but so much more… This is an experience for the senses.
