A tidy fortune has been invested in this beautiful property – With state-of-the-art air conditioning, copper plumbing, up-to-date electrical wiring, hardwood flooring throughout, ample closets and crystal-storage cabinets that light up with a gentle touch! It also has a modern, chef-ready KraftMaid® Kitchen with excellent appliances. The fabulous nine-foot high ceilings and large windows welcome you to a bright and cozy story-book family room that seamlessly takes you into the dining room.

The guest room upstairs has its own private exit, making it perfect as a rental or separate family space! No expense has been spared to modernize and upgrade all features inside this absolutely beautiful house. One could confidently say it was rebuilt from the very bones in 2012 when the present owners acquired it. The outdoor area, of over nine-thousand square feet, has been specially designed with 7 raised beds that grow a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs. There are 12 mature trees and a delightful backyard, miniature-putting-green, for those leisurely Sunday Golf mornings! The large two-car garage includes workbench-cabinets and an additional freestanding upright fridge and freezer! There are two studios, one in the basement with its own sump-pump for safe water disposal and another, recently installed exterior modular studio with air-conditioning, making this a very unique and special “REMOTE-LIVE-WORK-PLAY” property. Added to a long list of high-value upgrades is the fact that this is a truly wonderful house, designed by the legendary Greene and Greene brothers who also designed the famous Gamble House in Pasadena. Noteworthy aesthetics include the gorgeous gold and white trims, the medallion, ionic capitals atop fluted pilasters and porch columns on the frame, with flared roof eaves and paired exposed rafter tails, and a gabled front porch. The picturesque and storied Victorian exterior, built in the Beaux Arts style, is one of the finest examples of the famous ‘American Painted Ladies’ and its details can be found in the Register of the Secretary of The Interior. Records of this gem are in the Huntington Library archives too. Close to the Arroyo, the Rose Bowl, the Norton Simon Museum, the Wrigley Mansion and Old Pasadena, 442 N Summit is unlike anything available right now.
