Home of The Week: Designer Craftsman Tucked in Verdant La Canada


A divine embodiment of country-style living, this craftsman home is best described as picturesque. Expertly accented with stonework and a delicate garden, the facade boasts an elegant and on-trend storybook feel. Nestled in a coveted neighborhood—La Cañada Flintridge—the home offers ample space at 3,795 square feet with five bedrooms and four bathrooms. A large chef’s kitchen begs to host gatherings and dinner parties and a massive backyard space does the same. Peppered with designer details, but laced with tradition and a warm cozy feel, this property is a precious opportunity in a sought-after locale.

The property, located at 1518 Olive Lane, is listed with Partners Trust Associate Partner Gillan Abercrombie Frame and offered at $2,925,000.


Situated on a quiet street engulfed in mature trees, this property of .76 acres stands out with exterior detail and styling—a rare country-style retreat in the City of Angels. And although this space feels like it were plucked out of a storybook, its interiors are the doing of a design enthusiast. Even the guest studio offers chic rustic elements, modern finishes and crisp subway tile.


Inside the home, one is welcomed by a space that defines warmth and style. Tressel ceilings captivate as the surrounding French doors carry in a wealth of natural light to the shared living and dining area. The interior seems to glow with each modest, but poignant design detail including the mosaic fireplace as well as beautifully-textured paneled walls all around. The space is filled with depth and beauty and a perfect view of the overwhelmingly verdant backyard from the great room.


The home’s kitchen expertly blends farmhouse charm with modern elegance. Countertops are a neutral granite, which is an ideal match for the rich, natural wood beams overhead and a welcomed contrast against the crisp white vaulted ceilings. Stainless steel appliances bring in the luxury touch along with design-focused details like an oversized breakfast bar and eat-in area with a neighboring fireplace.


The cozy master features a light flushed space surrounded by French windows that look out to lush greenery which encompasses the perimeter of the home. Paneled walls add character, while a lavish en suite bathroom, a quaint sitting area and sizable walk-in closet nod at the understated luxury the home exudes.


Once outside, a charming entertaining and al fresco dining area, replete with an outdoor kitchen gives way to a lush, manicured space with an expansive pool and spa. Rather than concrete, the pool is surrounded by grass and shaded by age-old trees giving the feel of a natural wonderland—in your own backyard.
