This historic Myron Hunt designed single-level penthouse townhome, originally constructed in 1921 as a cottage to the famous Vista del Arroyo hotel, was thoroughly restored and modernized for modern living. The setting is absolutely amazing, complete with views of the Arroyo Seco, the San Gabriel Mountains and the historic Colorado Street Bridge. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath home is well-located in the beautiful South Grand Avenue neighborhood of Southwest Pasadena, and only one short block off the Rose Parade route, steps away from the rural Arroyo Seco, and adjacent to Old Town Pasadena. This luxurious gated community enjoys a place on the National Register of Historic Places. Enter through privacy-enhancing gates and take in a pristine, professionally maintained courtyard with lush landscaping and a fountain, all steeped in dreamy Spanish-style architecture. The interiors encompass 2,450 square feet--accessible via private elevator--and include two stunning elevated terraces with far-reaching treetop and city views. The elegant light-filled living room features a large gas fireplace and garden views. The spacious dining room has views of Defenders Park and the San Gabriel Mountains. An updated kitchen with a Viking refrigerator and range, Bosch microwave and stainless steel sink is the perfect place to prep a meal. The large primary en-suite bedroom has a gas fireplace, a spacious walk-in closet, and luxurious bathroom with marble floors, separate tub, walk-in shower and dual sinks with marble counters. The second en-suite bedroom features an upscale full bathroom. The sitting room, which can be used as the third bedroom, is adjacent to the primary suite and is outfitted with a built-in Murphy bed, closet - and has a private balcony with views. Additional home features include a laundry closet, refinished hardwood floors throughout, custom window coverings, two side-by-side subterranean parking spaces accessible, and a new half-bathroom added in 2018. HOA dues are $1,048.41 and include landscape, water, earthquake insurance, and trash. Enjoy this special home and the lifestyle of this lovely neighborhood and its amenities and the proximity to nearby Annandale Golf Club, the 134 and 210 freeways.
