If you are looking to buy a home in Altadena, take a look at this gorgeous modern mid-century home that just came on the real estate market today. Built in 1948, it is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with 1,740 sq. ft and sits on a lot over 7,279 sq. ft. per Assessor.
This serene mid-century modern designed by Gregory Ain as part of his Park Planned Homes has been updated as Ain would have wanted. Every room has a view to the yard or courtyard with water features in both. Custom cabinets, stainless steel appliances, backsplash, and farmhouse sink in kitchen. Cork floors in all rooms except baths. Both baths were redone including custom glass tile work. All systems replaced (HVAC, electrical, plumbing), new insulation in roof and exterior walls, new roof and recessed lighting throughout. Windows and doors were replaced in much of the house. Third bedroom was expanded by 400 sq ft. in the 50's at which time the closet was removed. Award winning landscaping, exterior stainless steel flashing and brushed nickel hardware complete the home's midcentury appeal.
This Altadena home is listed for sale at $729,000.
Update: October 7, 2008 - this home has been withdrawn from the market.
