Property Description

Built in 1926 and once the home of famed car collector/NBC bandleader Don Ricardo, this classic Spanish Revivalist estate has been lovingly renewed to embrace both modern living and historic heritage. A gated, wraparound driveway welcomes you from a tranquil street in the coveted South San Rafael community, offering private access to the generous motor court and 6 garage spaces. The property includes an expensive, terraced yard ready to host large gatherings, with luxurious covered dining spaces, room for a pool, and an additional 610 sq ft gym space and 370 sq ft studio. Inside, the 4,240 sq ft interior boasts an airy, open flow through elegant archways, transitioning from a fireplace living room to formal dining and the gourmet chef's kitchen, all artfully adorned with open-beam ceilings and vibrant tile accents. French doors reveal a 620 sq ft covered outdoor living space anchored by a charming outdoor fireplace. The main level hosts the plush primary suite showcasing a roomy walk-in closet and travertine en-suite bath. Ample accommodations for family and guests include three upstairs bedrooms, one used as an office, plus the 5th bedroom suite on the lower level with a separate entrance. Large windows overlook mature, manicured landscaping on the property grounds, while stained glass, rich hardwood floors and woodworking enhance the sense of character and comfort. All in an exceptional South Arroyo location moments away from Old Town Pasadena, freeways, Rose Bowl and Aquatic Center, local dining, farmers' market, parks and more. A historic estate with every modern comfort, this incredible offering is truly one-of-a-kind.
