"East Coast charm meets West Coast elegance in this stunning Chapman Woods estate, which promises a warm, inviting living experience and a level of privacy that s exceedingly rare. Built in 2005 and impeccably maintained, the estate boasts significantly newer construction than the vast majority of homes in Pasadena. Welcomed by the circular driveway, gated motor court, wraparound porch and majestic sprawling lawn that evokes summer in Greenwich, everything is utterly perfect for entertaining on a grand scale. Situated on a massive lot spanning over 1.5 acres, the 8-bedroom Farmhouse-style residence showcases a rear loggia with brick fireplace, pool and spa, herb garden, lighted tennis court, baseball diamond and batting cage on the adjacent lot. Inside the home, a host of luxe appointments including rustic wood beams and flooring, abundant bay windows showcasing serene estate views, 7 masonry fireplaces, elegant custom moulding, stone and tilework that establishes a stately esthetic that s truly one-of-a-kind. A separate guest house replete with 2 bedrooms and its own garage and dormers, which allow a wash of natural light to spill in. Adjacent lots on either side of the home, each about 1.38 acres in size, may be purchased separately in order to create the ultimate and private family compound encompassing a total of 4.5 acres. Surrounded by a sublime canopy of lush, mature trees and foliage, blissfully isolated from the hustle of the city yet downtown LA is just 13 miles away"
