This elegant two-story brick-faced house is a classic example of the English Tudor Revival style. The home is situated in the Rose Villa Oakdale Landmark District of Pasadena adjacent to Caltech. Designed in 1926 by notable architect George B. Brigham Jr., this gracious property is known as the 'Lion House'. Like an English Manor, it was updated by the current owners yet maintains its wonderful old-world charm and European influences. The five-bedroom, three-bathroom home features many special architectural details including an expansive vaulted and beamed ceiling in the living room, two fireplaces, French windows and doors, hardwood floors, Gothic pointed arched doorways and doors, limestone floors and an elegant stairway. This unique house was selected for the Holiday Look-In Home Tour by the Women's Committee of the Pasadena Symphony, and has twice been selected for the Pasadena Heritage Tour. A dramatic formal front garden has a high hedge for privacy and the fountain is the focal point of the gorgeous exterior of this gated property. There is also a large grass area perfect for badminton, croquet or kicking a soccer ball around. The south side of the garden features a rose garden, and a climbing rose frames the front entrance. There is a lemon, blood orange and seedless mandarin tree, and three walled private patios surrounding the perimeter. A circular drive creates a lovely entry and convenient access. The Lion House is close to the Huntington Library and Gardens, and many restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. Additional features include a downstairs bedroom, currently used as a home office and full bathroom, four bedrooms upstairs with a primary ensuite and walk-in closet. The foundation has been bolted, there is a large array of paid solar panels, a tankless hot water heater, and a water purification and softener system. Most of the original hardwood floors have been refinished and there is a tremendous amount of storage in three attic storage spaces and in the garage. Because of its unique layout, this beautiful home is the perfect place for large formal events, cozy family evenings and party games in the private enclosed front garden.
