Property Description

The Stone House on Gertrude. One of the original Stone Homes in The Crescenta Highlands. Local lore has that this home was built by an immigrant industrialist, one of the early settlers in the valley. Designed in grand scale & primarily constructed from locally quarried stone, it's purposely sited amongst towering pine trees, w/the surrounding streets named for his daughters. You feel as if on a lost country lane as you approach, arriving at a stone wall, the house & grounds are finally revealed at the long private drive. Wind up past great lawns to the security gate & beyond to the rear grounds; w/tons of parking, flat grassy area, wood deck for alfresco entertaining, lower yard ideal for pets, verdant terraced garden w/indigenous & exotic plantings, and newer dual door stone garage - one side for vehicle/work shop, the other finished like an ADU w/bath. Then, the Home - Steps lead to a Stone Portico that doubles as Sun Room & Grand Entry. Here, a most significant door leads to the most significant room. Soaring ceilings, a tremendous stone fireplace and arched windows create the feeling of a Cathedral. It is a great room with a soul and beating heart. Adjacent, is the lower-level bedroom/office & bath. Then, through arched doors; the powder room, formal dining/gathering space, gourmet kitchen w/custom dinette, and laundry room. Down - The finished basement/media room. Up - Two guest bedrooms, hall bath, and master bedroom w/luxurious bath, dual sinks & claw foot tub. AOIALO
