Property Description

Nestled on the edge of the Arroyo, with spectacular views sweeping across Brookside Golf Club to Linda Vista, this Spanish Colonial Revival home was designed and constructed in 1930 by R. Stayton Dorris, a noted Pasadena builder who constructed many homes in the area. Upon entering, a graceful curving staircase with a hand wrought iron railing greets you. The original triple fired terracotta tile floors leads you to a sunken living room with a soaring wood trussed ceiling. The wood detail is continued in the paneled over-mantle. A large vertical picture window affords the same impressive view as the backyard. A generously sized dining room with a roughhewed beamed ceiling is also accessed from the foyer. The kitchen offers some original cabinetry, as does the Butler’s Pantry area. The converted garage has been transformed into a family room off the kitchen. Two bedrooms, an office, one full and one half bath are located on the other side of the first floor. Three bedrooms and two full baths compose the second floor. A large tiled porch can be accessed through two sets of double French doors in the living room or from the kitchen. Stepping down from the porch, there is a pool and spa, surrounded by a brick deck set in a basket weave pattern. The property is screened in the front by a tall mature hedge and the entire property is surrounded by wrought iron fencing. This is a rare opportunity to live in a home that harkens back to the Golden Age of California Architecture.
