Home of the Week: Serene, Magical Retreat on More Than 2 Flat Wooded Acres
February 11, 2019
Offered for the first time in more than 60 years, this light-filled 1920 Italian Revival-style treasure is sequestered on 3130 Maiden Lane in the foothills of Altadena. Set against the backdrop of the San Gabriel Mountains on some 2.36 acres laced with rustic trails, the property has been owned by the same family since 1957.
The formal living room of the 3,400-plus-square-foot home features a dramatic 13-foot barrel ceiling, fireplace, French doors, and a glassed-in sun loggia with triple archways that frame views of the grounds and mountains. The generous dining room has a nine-foot ceiling, natural light on three sides, French doors, and original plaster molding relief with pomegranate details. Adjacent to the kitchen, a large breakfast room with French doors opens to the grassy rear yard.
This rare opportunity is presented by Sarah Rogers at $2,500,000.
