Tightly held for more than 4 decades, Pasadena House has been a cherished family home retained for three generations. Perched elegantly on an elevated, flat 1,417sqm block, this traditional Californian bungalow, has been architecturally transformed, seamlessly creating a large, one level gracious residence, sympathetic to its traditional origins.

Reminiscent of Slim Aarons charm captured in the 60’s, Pasadena epitomises the glamour and charisma that he sought to capture in his portraits, complete with the perfectly manicured gardens, date palms, sweeping travertine lined entertainment porches and pool house adjoining a stunning in-ground heated pool.

The traditional solid cavity brick wing retains all of its original charming authenticity with flawless floorboards, ornate cornices and crisp white interiors, accommodating 5 bedrooms and two bathrooms.

The new wing, which has the potential to accommodate a second level if desired, provides an effortless open plan design, merging a series of indoor outdoor rooms which maximise the tranquil green view. There is also a third bathroom servicing this extension.

It is the perfect hub, connecting to the series of indoor and outdoor rooms, while also practically positioned to watch children both swimming and playing in the enormous garden, large enough to accomodate a half size tennis court.

At night, the twinkling of city lights, transform the evening atmosphere, along with soft garden lighting, which highlight the leafy courtyards and water feature. Every luxury has been considered in this magnificent executive family home.
