Surrounded by Chinese Elms, Cypress and Eucalyptus trees, this Classic California cottage is reminiscent of a romantic French or English country home.  It is located in Casa Grande, one of the most desirable neighborhoods in North Pasadena.

A formal entry leads to a spacious living room with barrel ceilings, wood burning fireplace and French doors leading to a private side courtyard with a tranquil fountain and natural gray slate perfect for al fresco dining.

An arched entry opens to a formal dining room showcasing trey ceilings and another set of french doors opening to the patio. Kitchen has black quartz counters, stainless steel appliances including a Thermador Professional gas stove and Sub-Zero refrigerator, butler's pantry and over-sized stainless hood. A sunny breakfast room/study, off of the kitchen, overlooks the peaceful garden and quiet street.

Two bedrooms with large windows, a generous hall with storage and a bathroom with marble vanity and wainscoting complete the first level along with the laundry room leading to the back garden and path to the garage.

Upstairs offers a master suite with walk in closet and beautiful views of the mountains as well as the romantic garden below, a full bath and a fourth bedroom or study.  Both upstairs bedrooms have individual European-style air/heat units in addition to central air conditioning and heating, for energy conservation.

Hardwood floors throughout, moldings, bead board, tons of small details contribute to the home's natural elegance.

A 2-car garage with a sliding barn-style door offers additional storage and is right next to a mature grapevine.
