1195 Rancheros Rd , Pasadena , CA
Down a long tree-lined driveway in Pasadena’s coveted Linda Vista neighborhood sits 1195 Rancheros Road. This charming ranch style home, designed by Harold Bissner and built in 1937, has been totally remodeled and contemporized by the Seller in coordination with well respected architect Georgie Kajer. Sited on a knoll, the property enjoys an expansive vista of the San Gabriel Mountains with city lights and tree-top views over the Rose Bowl. Entering the home, the entry and living room are surrounded by walls of large windows overlooking the spectacular view. The kitchen opens up to the family room and has been perfectly updated with stone countertops, a walnut topped island and a Viking oven and stove. The elegant dining room is centered on a large fireplace and two sets of french doors opening out to the dramatic mountain views. On one side of the home there are three bedrooms, one with its own en-suite bathroom, a powder room and two additional bedrooms that share a jack and jill bath. The main bedroom is separated from the others with its own hallway, leading to a serene space that enjoys one set of french doors out to the backyard and another out to a large deck overlooking trees and verdant scenery. The “U shaped” home centers on a courtyard with a river rock wall and steps up to a pretty terraced area planted with drought tolerant landscape. A former garage sits nearby, permitted and ready to be reimagined into a new space.This lovely property consists of two parcels which are not “tied” together and have separate parcel numbers and tax bills.
