This architecturally intriguing, mid-century home in the hills of San Rafael is conveniently located to provide ease of access to Downtown LA, the studios in Burbank and all that Pasadena itself has to offer its residents. The formal living room is noted as the signature room of this A-Frame home featuring vaulted ceilings, glistening hardwood floors, beautiful exposed wood beams, a stone wood-burning fireplace, a picturesque triangular window/skylight on one side of the room and floor to ceiling windows and sliders that open up to an oversized front deck so ideal for year round indoor/outdoor living in Southern California. The nice sized kitchen features granite countertops, a walk-in pantry, a sub-zero refrigerator, maple cabinets, a gas stovetop, a double oven and a sit-in bar area that opens nicely to the formal dining room featuring hardwood floors, recessed lighting and newer windows. There is a door to the side yard between the kitchen and dining room and an oversized storage room at the other end of the kitchen with the laundry hook-ups, a utility sink and room for the imagination on how this large space could be most effectively used for the next owners. One of the three bedroom suites is on the entry level of the home. This 1st level bedroom suite has a slate floor, new Hunter Douglas blinds, a ceiling fan and an attached bath updated with a new toilet, a pedestal sink and views of the hillside. Up the bamboo stairwell to the 2nd level are two additional bedrooms. The first bedroom suite upstairs is highlighted by the new bamboo wood floors, a modern ceiling fan, a built-out closet and an attached bathroom. The master bedroom suite has two closets, new bamboo wood flooring, a new ceiling fan and an attached master bathroom featuring a step down shower with a roman tub, double sinks with a corian countertop, and a double pane slider to the back patio. This multi-tiered, brick back patio is another great area for entertaining family and friends with its new iron gate work, a working built-in barbecue and a covered step up patio providing shelter from those hot summer days. With treetop, picturesque views and the charming character of this architecturally intriguing home, coming home at the end of the day is a refreshing retreat from the busyness of the city life only a short drive away.
