2919 Lake Avenue
Hidden in the upper Altadena foothills, this enchanting property sits well off the street while offering a private and romantic setting. Casa de Los Agaves dates back to 1930 and is said to have been a ranch house to a nearby estate. Beautifully restored in 2012 the home exudes warmth and charm in every corner while being showcased by original details and time specific architecture. The home is highlighted by updated Marvin windows and a fresh Saltillo floor. Being a true Spanish cottage, the home opens to a large room with a vaulted/ open truss ceiling and oversized brick fireplace. A dining area passes to the galley kitchen with butcher block counters, beadboard cabinets and updated appliances. A sunny hallway leads to the powder bathroom, guest bedroom (without closet) and access to the backyard. The primary bedroom sits off the back of the great room and includes a private bathroom. Additional access to the yard is from the dining area and opens to a brick patio with dappled light, garden views and antique tiled fountain to welcome you into the tranquil outdoor space. A heritage oak tree rests in the middle of the yard while offering shade over an additional brick patio. With a flowing stream feature adding to the natural setting, the space is ideal for outdoor dining or a place of rest. A winding path continues on leading to a spacious sun-drenched St. Augustine lawn with adjacent decomposed granite patio. A detached garage rests within the garden and has been thoughtfully renovated into a combined office and woodworking shop. An additional shed sits beside it, offering room for storage or the ideal place for raising chickens. This artist retreat compound is the perfect nature-lovers hideaway where one can rest and recharge while being in reach of shopping, hiking trails and access to highways. Find your peace and creativity at Casa de Los Agaves.
