Home Of The Week

4385 Commonwealth Avenue

La Canada Flintridge

Situated on a nearly 1.5-acre secluded lot in one of La Cañada Flintridge’s most coveted neighborhoods, this custom-built Nantucket/Cape Cod-inspired estate showcases fine craftsmanship, timeless design and plentiful amenities.

Rooms filled with abundant natural light are accented with wainscoting, wide plank walnut floors and elevated ceilings, all seamlessly integrated with an open floor plan to create a warm and comfortable ambiance.

With attention to every detail, architect Dave De Angelis designed the home to blend with a casual California lifestyle. The approximately 10,655-square-foot residence encompasses a media room with heated floors and a wet bar, wine-tasting room with a 3,000-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar and a gym with a bathroom. In addition, there are a formal living room and family room with fireplaces, formal dining room, large mudroom, office and library or music parlor with glass pocket doors.

Open to the family room, the fabulous gourmet kitchen has top-of-the-line appliances, a large center island, breakfast bar and separate preparation kitchen with a butler’s pantry.

Upstairs are four spacious bedroom suites, including a luxurious master suite with two generously sized walk-in closets with built-in shelves and drawers and two spa-like bathrooms.

The lushly landscaped grounds offer resort-like amenities, including a Pebble Tec saltwater pool/spa, built-in barbecue, pergola, spacious covered dining area, huge fireplace, lighted putting green and sport court, and private vineyard. There is also a separate pool house with a full kitchen, bathroom and covered outdoor dining area.

Families will have fun spending time together or entertaining friends in the separate approximately 1,846-square-foot recreation room, big enough to accommodate multiple seating areas and televisions, along with pool, ping-pong and poker tables or arcade games such as Skee-Ball.

Other highlights of the property include a courtyard with a hot tub, a three-car garage and plenty of space for parking.
