820 Seco St, Pasadena
This eclectic Spanish hacienda hideaway was fully rebuilt in 2010 in Pasadena's central arroyo and is adjacent to the vast open spaces and dynamic offerings of the famed Rose Bowl. Walled and secluded, this re-imagined 3 bed/5 bath home underwent a down-to-the-studs remodel - including expansion of the living areas, addition of an oversized 2 car garage and guest house plus a total conversion of the landscape-so as to be conducive to the authentic California climate. Exemplifying true pride of ownership, this home was not a speculative undertaking, but rather a home personalized with care and attention, incorporating fine materials, choice architectural elements and exceptional craftsmanship. Geared towards entertaining, the floor plan includes an upper level open concept kitchen oriented to a shaded terrace ideal for people watching, sunsets & fireworks. Multi-car gated parking and a Mediterranean hillside pool make this city home feel like a vacation destination in a faraway locale.
