“La Posada”, a four bedroom five bathroom romantic Spanish Hacienda in the exclusive Orange Grove area of Pasadena, is located 7 short blocks from the Wrigley Mansion/Tournament of Roses Headquarters, and was built in 1919 by Reginald D. Johnson, who created architectural masterpieces like the Santa Barbara Biltmore hotel, the California Institute of Technology, and UCLA's Chancellor's House. “La Posada” sits on a private gated lot over 1/2 acre in size that features a sprawling green backyard, a lap pool and spa, a veranda, a three car garage, an expansive driveway, and is home to an enormous Moreton Bay fig tree considered to be the 3rd largest tree in Pasadena. In fact, the famed architect built the home around the root system of this 300-year young giant. Once through the dramatic arched cast stone entrance, you are greeted by a seamless blend of old and new world that include arched ceilings, antique doors and chandeliers, coffered wood ceilings, mirrored ceilings, cast stone entry ways, brick and columned loggia, thick plaster walls, Spanish tiled floors, and hard wood floors. Natural sunlight is enhanced by the plantation shutters that complement nearly each window, and the pool or backyard can easily be accessed from almost every room in the home. “La Posada” is a two level home. The west wing of the top floor is home to the master bed, master bath, and two additional bedrooms and bathrooms. The east wing of the top floor is home to the dining room, the living room, and the kitchen area. The grand-size gourmet kitchen boasts state-of-the-art appliances, a sub-zero, a breakfast nook, granite countertops and backsplash, and glass front cabinetry. Surround sound is built in throughout the entire home. The bottom floor consists of a guest / extended family suite with a private bath, a small library / office space, a laundry room, a wine cellar, and an oversized den (currently used as a family room) that can be used in a wide variety of possibilities. Those with a fine passion for architecture will adore “La Posada” and its ability to transport you back to a simpler time while still being wired in—IF you want.
