4799 White Oak Ave – Pasadena CA Real Estate
If you have ever wondered what it would be like to live in a New England Farmhouse, this is your golden opportunity! Built in 1947, this home has been lovingly restored with exquisite attention to detail, craftsmanship and material. The formal living room has wood floors, a beamed ceiling with recessed lighting, charming window seat and an enormous brick fireplace.
There are gorgeous pocket doors between the living room and formal dining room. The formal dining room has polished brick flooring, and mullioned French sliding doors leading out to a lush and verdant backyard. The views from the dining room are amazing: orange and oak trees, roses, pool, spa, fountain and gazebo. A center-island gourmet kitchen is the heart and soul of this home.
A vaulted trestle beam ceiling contributes to a light and airy feel. The kitchen has two Dutch doors – one opening to the back yard, and the other to a front courtyard. Butcher-block counters maintain that ‘Farmhouse feel’, and are accented by a black and white checkered backsplash and Carrara marble buffet counter. The kitchen has a breakfast bar and a charming eating area in close proximity to a fireplace that is flanked by custom cabinetry, a desk and storage. The kitchen features top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, an apron sink, walk-in pantry and ceiling stereo speakers.
Also on the ground floor is a family room that has an abundance of custom bookshelves and storage, recessed lighting, window seat and wet bar. The laundry room has side-by-side appliances and storage, is adjacent to a powder room with pedestal sink and has a doorway providing access to the back yard, pool and outdoor shower. Bedroom 1 is adjacent to the living room and has built-in storage and custom window treatments. There is a home office on the first floor that has windows on three sides and a cozy fireplace. Located between Bedroom 1 and the home office is a three-quarter bath with a pedestal sink, shower and lovely wall sconces.
Upstairs is Bedroom 2, a newly-remodeled suite with new carpet, two walk-in closets, windows on three sides and a bathroom featuring subway tile, custom cabinetry with a Carrara marble-topped vanity and under-mount sink.
