Set back from the street on an incredibly quiet & private 20,000+ SF lot accessed by a long driveway, this light-filled three + 1.75 Mid-Century time-capsule lives large thanks to spacious rooms & an open floorplan. Original information abound including the kitchen's built-in banquette and family room's beamed ceilings & stone fireplace, and walls of glass look out to verdant grounds and afford panoramic views of the mountains & city, including the downtown LA skyline. In addition to rolling lawns, the grounds feature a pond shaded by mature pine trees, an abundance of flowering shrubs & fruit trees, and a fenced vegetable garden. On the market for the 1st time in 50+ years, this well-kept property was the long-time home of a beatnik-era chemistry professor & music columnist celebrated by Altadena Heritage in 2009, his wife, a potter, and later, her sister, a biologist at the LA Arboretum, and presents a wonderful opportunity to restore or update and enjoy the sunsets for many years to come.
