MLS remarks read for 928 Descanso Dr. La Canada Flintridge: Behind massive vintage wooden gates and ten-foot hedges you’ll find a hidden treasure! California style with an elegant yet unpretentious charm. Magnificent welcoming and warm, the three sisters that grew up here agree they all felt very fortunate to be raised in their unique home. Cherished by the same family for more than 55 years, this 1925 Spanish Colonial rests on two joined lots just under one-half acre.
The architectural details are stunning, from the portico formal entry hall to the grand living room with a massive window trimmed in wrought iron draped in Bougainvillea Vines with views of the trees, gardens, and spa. Just off the living room, the formal dining room offers a very large seating capacity for family and guests. From the dining room, French Doors lead to a large balcony extending the entertaining area even further.
The kitchen features a built-in breakfast area with ample counter space and cabinets. Two whimsical vintage leaded stained glass windows open to the large grassy front lawn. Four bedrooms and three bathrooms feature an array of beautiful vintage-colored tiles and fixtures in each bathroom. Two bedrooms and one bath are on the main level. The second level has the primary bedroom and one other with two baths and plenty of large windows to bring in the breeze.
There is a large basement suitable for storage and another space that needs remodeling could be guest quarters, a nanny room, or a home theater. Use your imagination. Privacy is the key word to describe this home. The grounds are suitable for any special event! The word Descanso means ”rest” You will find it here quiet and peaceful with lots of birds. Peaceful location but still minutes away from schools, shops, amenities, and beautiful Descanso Gardens. Don’t miss it!
