555 Fillmore Street, Pasadena, CA
Set at the corner of one of the most picturesque streets in Pasadena, the 'de Balaine House' has been an elegant presence in Madison Heights since 1914. The Italian Period Revival residence is a 4,600 square foot, one-story home. The formal entry and living room offer up high drama with two-story high ceilings in the living room with a balcony that was once used for musical performances. In the family room, a beautiful tile fireplace is flanked by pairs of glass-paned doors opening to the patio. The formal dining room and a sunny office also feed off of the living room. The gourmet kitchen features marble-topped counters and top of the line appliances. French doors off of the breakfast area lead to the lovely covered patio and pool area. The gracious master and three additional large 'en suite' bedrooms complete the spacious home. The property has been impeccably maintained with updated HVAC, plumbing, electrical, a solar panel system, and more. Surrounded by privacy landscaping and shaded by mature trees, the grounds create a wonderful setting for outdoor entertaining.
