Pasadena Luxury Real Estate January 2019: Last month the most expensive Pasadena home sale was 1166 Hillcrest Ave. This home listed on 12/3 and was reported in escrow the following day. This leads me to believe that the home sold off market. It’s highly doubtful that an estate of this magnitude would sell in one day, especially in December. The home sold for the asking price of $5,990,000. The current sellers purchased this home in 2000 for $1,585,500 .
MLS Remarks Read: This 1913 Prairie Craftsman, sited on a sweeping 250-foot-wide lot, is a significant presence. And on one of the premier streets in the South Oak Knoll District. No expense was spared in creating this elegant estate. Upon entering the grand foyer, a beautiful staircase of carved mahogany rises to enormous windows framing a treetop view of the San Gabriel Mountains. With intricate carved wood detailing, gorgeous moldings, mahogany doors & beautiful built-ins throughout, the home is a testament to quality craftsmanship & timeless design.
The Living Room & Sunroom open to a large grass yard & a dramatic terrace. The stately Dining Room features intricate millwork & an incredible built in mahogany buffet. The office features handsome walnut bookcases & a large walk-in safe that is original to the house. The remodeled kitchen & great room feature a Viking range & 2 Sub Zero refrigerators. All 5 bedroom suites are upstairs. An expansive loggia wraps the back of the home, connecting lovely gathering spaces which include the terrace, pool area & outdoor kitchen which connect to a theater/game room & bath. The separate guest/pool house has a bedroom, spa-like bath & two additional rooms. A large 3-car garage, porte cochere & motor-court complete the fully gated property.
