Located in the “Vale of Annandale”, a coveted San Rafael neighborhood, this gorgeous home is tucked away on a special cul-de-sac street with a charming island roundabout at its end, and located within minutes of Old Town Pasadena, the Rose Bowl, and nearby downtown Los Angeles. This masterfully designed home is mindful of every aspect of California living and is an entertainer’s paradise. Originally built in 1940, and magically transformed in 2005, this home showcases lovely rooms, special nooks, inviting patios, and opportunities to nestle into many of life’s pursuits from the culinary gourmet kitchen, to the wine cellar, to the home offices, to the special ‘party-supply’ room and music room upstairs. The home offers formal living and dining rooms, a den, 4 bedrooms which include the master bedroom suite, a guest suite/office with hide-away Murphy Bed, and 4 bathrooms. The uniquely designed living room, featuring a wood burning fireplace, can transform into a theater with a hidden viewing screen and Sensurround sound! The rear of the home wraps around a quaint brick patio with the backyard romantically cascading into the outdoor living room with fireplace, swimming pool with waterfall and spa, and even a basketball hoop tucked away for practicing shots. Two unique areas make this home stand out: the wine cellar which has a temperature controlled environment and has room for aging over 2,000 bottles of your favorite wines , and the 940 sq ft (approx) of climate controlled attic rooms with their ‘party-supply’ room, abundant storage which includes three rooms, wrapping station, and lots of cabinets and shelving for all your party supplies, holiday decorations, etc. This home’s additional features include two central air conditioning systems, copper plumbing, a 200-amp electrical panel, and oak hardwood flooring.
