1885 Kinneloa Canyon Road, Pasadena
Situated on over a half acre of sprawling grounds on a street-to-street lot in the desirable Kinneloa Canyon neighborhood, this charming, single-level home has been lovingly maintained and recently remodeled. “Kinneloa”, named after its famed owner Abbot Kinney in the 1880s when Kinney owned and lived on 550 acres of this forested canyon, is home today to many estates and ranch-style houses alike, and offers a tranquil way of life away from the hustle bustle, yet close to major shopping, dining and transportation hubs.
The spacious, light-filled interior offers a versatile floorplan and features brand new hardwood floors, three fireplaces, greenery views and an idyllic backyard with swimming pool. A cozy front porch and an entry hall with tiled floor welcomes guests into a warm living room with a bricked fireplace.

The remodeled kitchen features granite counters, stainless steel appliances, tiled floors and a cheery breakfast area. Four bedrooms and three remodeled bathrooms are conveniently located on the south wing, including a private master suite with sliding glass door to the backyard and pool. A huge den, with fireplace and beamed ceilings, is perfect for relaxation. A multi-purpose bonus room with laundry hookups offers a myriad possibilities.
