Nestled in the urban forest of southwest Pasadena, this architecturally significant contemporary retreat suggests the comfort and relaxation of a personal park, within 10 min of downtown Los Angeles. Sitting on a legacy lot of the old Poole estate and verging on a vernal pond, the home is in a contained private space of almost an acre. The home was built in 2008, is behind gates, and is accessed down a long oak-shaded drive from a quiet cud-de-sac that offers invisibility from all street traffic. The house is 6,485 square feet of indoor space on 3 levels. Entering either from the attached 3 car garage via elevator or stairway from the interior, the lower level consists of private bedroom suite with separate entrance and temperature controlled wine cellar with racks for 1,100+ bottles. The main level is anchored by the stunning Great Room with fully retractable walls of glass and 20 feet ceilings. Featuring polished concrete floors with radiant heat, exposed architectural steel beams and large windows set high to capture.
