Property Description

100 Los Altos was built in 1928 by one of Pasadena’s most revered historic architects, Myron Hubbard Hunt. Sited on nearly two acres and in a prominent position overlooking the iconic Colorado Street Bridge, the estate is located at the gateway to Pasadena between the Arroyo Seco and Annandale Golf Club. Entering off the private drive, past the iron gates and into the motor court, the grandeur of the architecture is immediately evident in the impressive facade. A solid bronze front door welcomes guests into a dramatic walnut paneled gallery and conveys the old world opulence found throughout. At one end of the gallery rests the grand living room designed for lavish entertaining with an ornate coffered ceiling, a massive fireplace and floor to ceiling windows. A wall of french doors leads out to the elegant grounds where a veranda extends out to a series of fountains cascading down to the pool and the romantic chandelier-lit pavilion. The grounds are lushly landscaped and punctuated by ornate iron lamp posts reflecting craftsmanship of a bygone era. A walking path encircles the entire property connecting the rose garden, grass lawns, wisteria covered pergolas and multiple patios and seating areas. Inside, the formal dining room enjoys abundant light with floor to ceiling windows, a large stone-faced fireplace and gorgeous silk wallpaper. The handsome library is paneled in rich walnut and is flanked by two fireplaces, one on each end of the room, perfect for more intimate gatherings. The 10,277 square foot home features four bedrooms and nine bathrooms. The massive primary bedroom suite showcases luxurious ‘dual’ dressing areas, one styled with intricate Chinoiserie finishes and an adjoining bathroom that includes a salon area and a glamorous bathtub enveloped in red silk walls. The second dressing area and bath are finished in rich wood paneling, incredible marble details and stained-glass in the shower. On the opposite wing there are two bedrooms, a small ‘chapel’, a second laundry room and an upstairs family room which could easily be converted to an additional bedroom. On the main level, a large guest suite has its own private entrance. An impressive three car garage with vaulted ceilings, chandeliers and filigree iron doors, completes the property. This incredible estate offers the rare opportunity to own a true piece of Pasadena history.
