Swanky and sophisticated, the home's split-level configuration provides versatile living options.

The kitchen has just undergone a renovation with new tile backsplash, granite countertops, breakfast bar and new appliances. Two generous bedrooms, one with an enviable over-sized walk-in closet, two recently remodeled baths and a separate laundry room complete this floor.A spiral staircase leads to the lower level consisting of another flexible space which currently serves as a generous great room featuring a built-in bar and wall of bookshelves. Slider doors access the beautiful new expansive deck and gentle steps to the back gardens. An attached study with fireplace, additional bath, workshop and exit to the 2 car garage ensure this space will be both accessible and well- utilized!This home is an entertainer's dream! With its prime location and easy access to Old Town Pasadena, the iconic Rose Bowl, Arroyo Seco and downtown Los Angeles, this one impresses on many levels.
