This elegant, French-style Pasadena estate pairs contemporary comforts with exquisite, classic details. Perfectly situated moments from the Huntington Library, Art Collections and Gardens, the recently reimagined 8,322-square-foot residence was thoughtfully designed to accommodate both large-scale, formal entertaining and casual, day-to-day living. Through the gated entry and past the three-car garage, find 1725 Orlando Road’s enchanting front courtyard with water fountain, surrounded by manicured shrubbery, mature oaks and fruit trees.
Double doors open to the estate’s palatial entrance hall, which leads to a sunken formal living room, family room, media room and office with built-in storage. The five-bedroom, eight-bathroom home’s interiors are replete with chateau-inspired details—from soaring ceilings, intricate crown moldings and stone and hardwood floors to expansive windows and numerous ceiling alcoves adorned with dramatic chandeliers. Arched doorways provide seamless transitions from room to room. The bright, updated kitchen is equipped with a large, stone-topped eat-in island, professional-grade stainless steel appliances and wine fridge.
A curving, wrought iron railed staircase leads to the second story and ensuite bedrooms, which look out onto the backyard’s large lap pool, waterfall, attached spa and nearby private tennis court bordered with tall, privacy-enhancing cypress trees. Adjacent to the pool is a covered outdoor kitchen and dining area with a barbecue and ample space for an open-air gathering.
In addition to being moments from the Huntington, 1725 Orlando Road is ideally located minutes from the restaurants and shops of Old Town Pasadena and a short drive from Downtown Los Angeles.
