Arcadia, California, a small town near Pasadena, California, has been the site of exponential growth over the last few years. One of the reasons is the notable schools which consistently receive above average test results.
Arcadia’s Upper Rancho neighborhood is known for some of the area’s largest homes including this contemporary home built in 1991. The seven-bedroom estate sits on a knoll with 2/3 of an acre of land and has been freshly renovated. Its updated style has an international appeal with a dramatic foyer.
The formal living room is done in muted tones that are reminiscent of a grand hotel.
The main level also includes a formal dining room, bar and lounge, gourmet kitchen with secondary kitchen, meditation room, maid’s quarters, laundry room and gym.
The two-story library has amazing windows. A powder room, and full guest suite complete the first floor with beautiful views of the mountains, swimming pool/spa, pergola, putting green and lawn.
The second level offers four full bedroom suites in addition to the master suite, which features a sitting area, private balcony, alk-in closet and spa-like marble bathroom with a separate steam shower, soaking tub, and double sinks.
One of the most interesting features is massive subterranean 7-car garage with custom lighting and flooring and direct access to the lower level of the home. The home also has LED lighting and solar panels.
