Description

The first Pasadena Showcase Design House in 1965, this architectural masterpiece has stood the test of time. This private gated 1931 Italian Villa, designed by architect Edwin L. Westberg, AIA, who was associated with Wallace Neff, is a stunning estate that has been meticulously restored and updated. Inspired by the 14th century Palazzo Davanzati in Florence, this property transports you to Italy with its tranquil south-facing vistas of the San Gabriel Valley and 30-acre Lacy Park, known for its annual Independence Day fireworks show, specimen plants and trees, mature rose garden, and tennis courts. Built by The Foss Designing & Building Co., a respected local construction firm of the time, the current owners procured the original plans from the Huntington Library and spared no cost in restoring the estate to its original grandeur while adding modern amenities for contemporary living. Spanning approx. 7,788 SF on 1.75 acres, this exquisite villa offers a timeless elegance that is evident in the redwood paneled ceilings in the living room, entry, and dining room, creating a warm and inviting ambiance. The attention to detail featured in the pocket screen doors and rolling window screens, custom iron railings, windows, and solid walnut doors, showcase the craftsmanship of the era. The gourmet kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances, Sub-Zero, Bosch, and Gaggeneau, complemented by stainless, marble, and butcher block countertops. A covered dining patio, adjacent to the kitchen, provides a delightful space for enjoying meals while taking in scenic views. The villa's outdoor spaces are equally impressive, featuring spacious tiled, stone, and brick patios, terraces and loggias that complement the many balconies adorning the upper floor. This serene setting provides maximum enjoyment and privacy as neighbors cannot be seen, and includes a pool, separate spa, and enclosed grounds with pathways, fruit trees, mature pine and oak trees. Property highlights: 5 bedroom suites, 7.5 baths, en-suite downstairs office/bedroom, library, main & secondary staircases, 3-car garage w/ double EV charging, solar & back-up energy, security system w/ camera & intercom phone system, 4-zone HVAC, 400-amp electrical service, finished basement/gym w/ outside access, & permit-approved plans for an 800 SF ADU. With its rich history, impeccable craftsmanship, and integration of modern amenities, this Italian Villa offers a unique opportunity to own a piece of architectural excellence
