3544 Lombardy Road, Pasadena, CA
A rare find in the leafy enclave of Pasadena’s estate neighborhood of Chapman Woods. This quintessential early California ranch is sited on over an acre of flat land with sweeping lawns, a swimming pool, guest house, chicken coop, vegetable garden and room for a tennis court. The property has been published in multiple magazines after a complete re-build by well known local architects, designers and landscape architects who re-imagined the property with meticulous attention to detail coupled with clean, unpretentious design. The open floor plan sweeps across gleaming hardwood floors, lit by large multi-paned windows that frame green vistas. Vaulted ceilings in the family room and master retreat further expand the spacious atmosphere. Four en-suite bedrooms occupy their own wing, highlighted by a master with a large walk-in closet and bathroom, French doors to the patio and a gorgeous window-seat overlooking the grounds. The massive and bright kitchen and family room function beautifully for day to day living but are also wonderful spaces for entertaining. The home is flooded with natural light from multiple sets of french doors and dutch doors that also bolster the indoor-outdoor connection.There are three fireplaces, including one outdoors on the tree-shaded patio. Nearby, a pergola covered dining area takes in views of the sweeping, tree-circled lawn. A spacious guest and pool house with murphy bed, bathroom and kitchenette completes this gracious environment. This is California living.
