Dramatic Italian Revival
Dramatic Italian Revival in the desirable Country Club area of Altadena is elegantly situated on a half acre of manicured grounds. The Postle Company designed and built this exceptional home in 1923, and designer Tamara Honey has revitalized it with a glamorous modern aesthetic, melding traditional architectural details with contemporary finishes. This fabulous residence is defined by soaring ceiling heights, dark hardwood floors, and huge Palladian windows and French doors which bathe the rooms in natural light. The foyer enters to a breathtaking living room with a 16.5 foot, beamed ceiling, Capiz shell chandelier, massive stone fireplace, and romantic interior balcony. The formal dining room features a Murano glass chandelier and coved ceiling. There is also an updated kitchen with Carrera marble countertops, breakfast room, butler’s pantry, laundry room, and powder room. The detached studio guest house with a kitchenette and a three-quarter bath is included in the square footage.
