Today I got the chance to see “The Last Stone Castle”, according to the owner.
First, the facts: 2301 Orange Cove, La Crescenta. 5 bed, 4.5 bath, 3250 sf (includes the 530 sf guest house) on 15,120 flatish lot. Listed at $1,225,000. This is not my listing, Chilluns- I just think it is darn purty.
Orange Cove is a particularly lovely street right off Briggs. I think some of the most character-filled homes in La Crescenta, Ca are on this very street. At the very end, behind a lovely electronic iron gate, is 2301 Orange Cove.
It starts with the round, native stone, turreted entry. Romance is the word as you take in the gracefully curving staircase, the massive wood beams or the artfully painted murals.
Don’t be fooled by the old world charm. This home has been fully restored and modernized. Kitchens, baths and mechanics are all up to today’s standards. Add the pool and the full guest house and you have your own private retreat from the world.
Enjoy this slide show from the pictures I found on the MLS. If this is your cup of tea, let’s go buy it! The seller of this home (who is an architect) is the perfect guy to buy my “Coming Soon” listing on Mountain. I am aching for a Mid-Century enthusiast to buy Mountain and this seller might be the ticket if one of you Chilluns buys Orange Cove.
