This refined home on a tree-lined street in the San Rafael neighborhood of Pasadena was transformed from its mid-century roots to the sophisticated and serene contemporary residence it is today. The front courtyard entry offers the perfect spot for entertaining. Custom glass and aluminum doors lead into the open plan living room featuring garden views, fireplace, dining area and the kitchen, with its European cabinetry and appliances, caesarstone counters and limestone floors. Two ample bedrooms (one with en-suite bath) and a second bathroom complete the main floor. Down the stairs a spacious master bedroom boasts vaulted ceilings, outdoor access, a stunning master bath with freestanding tub, European fixtures, and a walk-in closet. The large relaxing family room offers a seamless flow to the back garden, and an adjacent bath with steam shower. The bonus finished basement presents the opportunity for storage, a home office, playroom or art studio. A sound system throughout, a 300 bottle wine room, drought-tolerant landscaping, spa, waterfall, fire pit, outdoor bars, water feature and lighting make this an ideal home for hosting friends and family.
