Description

Historic English Revival Estate in coveted Altadena. This substantial home is characterized by creamy plaster, heavy wood timber, natural wood shingles, and promises to charm visitors at first sight. Located in the unique Farnsworth Park neighborhood the home is surrounded by a collection of diverse architecture, strong sense of place, nature and privacy, locally owned shops and eateries, access to the historic park, and the Echo Mountain trailhead. 3345 Marengo was completed in 1925 by Carl A. Escherich, a contractor, who built the house as his own home which he shared with his wife Elsa, an artist and writer, and their children. Private and gated, this proud English Revival style home is situated at the top of the hill away from the hustle and bustle on a 26,136 square-foot property with views of the beautiful San Gabriel mountains. Entertaining is to be expected, given the homes welcoming architecture, large Living Room with barrel-vaulted ceiling, spacious Kitchen with lively vintage tile, formal Dining Room, and spaces that open to the gracious outdoor terraces, decks, pool, and gardens. Upstairs the home boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 baths. Downstairs there is a bedroom and bath. The primary bedroom and ensuite bath are warmed by a fireplace and an abundance of original wood built-ins. Each bedroom has its own unique feature " two of them with access to the beautiful upstairs balcony that is perfect for sunsets. Rounding out the property is a connected Music Studio/Media Room with separate entrance that is poised and waiting for its next occupants to fill it with music and joy. An oversized garage with workshop is accessed from the driveway. This property is truly a well-cared for legacy that is ready for its next chapter.
