MLS Remarks for 5601 Canyonside Rd., La Crescenta read: Elegant, woodsy retreat. Updated. Like being on vacation every day, or work from home with the beautiful sound of “whispering pines.” Custom built split-level home in 2016 with quality design throughout, the warm wooden front door invites you and your guests into a fabulous home experience. Entry and hallway have gorgeous stone flooring, a chef’s dream kitchen with 6 burner Wolf stove on the upper level with adjacent dining area. A breath-taking great-room highlighted with a majestic fireplace, vaulted-beamed ceiling, and a classic lodge style chandelier. This room spills out onto the balcony and an expansive patio.
Circling back into the house is the en-suite master bedroom, with glass framed double doors that open out to a south facing, lovely patio where you can enjoy an early morning continental breakfast. Strolling through the hallway brings you to additional bedrooms and a hall bathroom. A convenient laundry area rounds out the bedroom wing. There is an en-suite bedroom perfect for guest and in-laws. The home faces south with a panoramic view and a shady backyard to the west. A custom built BBQ and wood-fired pizza oven on the back patio is excellent for informal, alfresco dining and entertaining. Welcome to the neighborhood!
