Altadena 1948 Charmer

This 1948 Traditional is a lovely home set against the San Gabriel Mountains but close to shopping, dining and work. Perched on a hill above street level and backing up against school property, with a large fenced and hedged patio area - this could be your own private oasis. The expansive covered front porch is just one of many bonuses found in homes of this era that create a warm, welcoming living space. Upon entering the front door, you'll step into the large living room with fireplace featuring a brick surround and a classic wood mantle. Oversized, paned sash-windows flood the rooms with natutal light. Original hardwood floors gleam throughout most of the interior. Large bedrooms, new light fixtures, fans, and fresh paint inside and out make this a move in ready home with vintage charm. Notice the swing doors, original double oven, refinished range, the adorable awning at the back door, and cast iron tub. The kitchen window looks out to the enclosed patio ideal for outdoor dining and entertaining. Stacked washer and dryer are conveniently located inside near the back door. This is a great location on a beautiful street, just east of Lake Avenue and South of Altadena Dr. Blocks from Altadena's beautiful Christmas Tree Lane.
