The spacious living room with Batchelder fireplace and gum-wood crown moldings flows seamlessly from space to space offering views to the backyard, pool and mountains beyond. A charming dining room opens into the cozy sunroom and stunning eat-in kitchen highlighted by a Calacatta marble waterfall island, Viking appliances and French doors leading outdoors. Three large bedrooms and strikingly updated baths complete the first floor. The expansive upstairs has been reimagined with the help of well-known architect Tom Marble showcasing the vaulted ceilings and modern architectural feel. A master bedroom, massive open bath, walk-in closet, media room, office, den and cozy nooks create a true oasis in white. The stand alone bath cleverly overlooks the picturesque San Gabriel Mountains, while the steam shower is set into the original gable. Vintage and contemporary lighting, fixtures, and hardware were all hand-picked to delight the eye and elevate daily living. The chic guesthouse with private bath connects smoothly from the main house and to the several outdoor dining areas, pool, spa, fire pit, and pool cabana. A newly-built modern bar and kitchenette will delight and surprise. Surrounded by hedges, the garden affords plentiful privacy.
