A Pasadena treat! Classic, mid-century post & beam with elements of a Japanese Country House, discretely sited behind a handsome, gated stone wall. Designed by noted USC grad, Hideo Matsunaga (1960), featuring walls of glass, this rare offering opens to a gracious veranda, overlooking the private, 2/3 acre property. Extensive use of wood throughout, mixed with peaceful garden views from every room contribute to a calming, indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The great room shows off its post & beam roots and has vaulted, wood ceilings, and views of a spectacular old growth oak tree, with access to the wide veranda. A brick fireplace anchors one end of this large space. The kitchen and family room are open, with the former offering gleaming stainless steel appliances, warm wood cabinetry, and direct access to a barbecue station with built-in seating. Additionally, there is a huge walk-in pantry off the laundry room. The private bedroom wing has 3 generous bedrooms, including the master suite, with two fully-fitted walk-in closets, and a spa like master bath with a relaxing wet room. The bedroom wing also offers access to a private courtyard. Downstairs is a forth bedroom suite and den with built-in desks, media shelving, a wet bar and wine storage. The large, fully-fenced lot is beautifully landscaped with dramatic lighting.
