Home of the Week: European Resort-Like Mansion Basks in the Pasadena Sun

Arrival upon this large motor court entry feels plucked out of our favorite films. The expansive 22,000-square-foot grounds of 1212 Wellington Avenue in Pasadena are impeccable and aptly situated in the desirable Linda Vista community, which neighbors both the Rose Bowl and Brookside Golf Course. The property boasts a distinguished Mediterranean facade standing tall and wide behind manicured hedges, foliage and lush gardens, all of which gives way to an astounding interior. The 5,770-square-foot home is listed by Pasadena aficionados and Partners Trust’s The Salcido Team and offered at $4,375,000.


The home’s interior scale borrows from tradition with a warm and welcoming feel. The entry opens to reveal a grand entry marked by terracotta tile flooring and a vaulted ceiling.


Archways lead to a plush living space replete with French doors that seamlessly guide you to open-air respite, including a loggia and a built-in BBQ joining a tiled counter bar.


Further through the home, which is flushed with natural light, behold corridors peppered in high design, such as remarkable ceilings and a formal dining space a stone’s throw from the vast chef’s kitchen. The kitchen space alone is one to behold where thoughtful Mediterranean detail shares the space with modern touches.


But what’s not to miss on the home’s first floor, beside the wealth of entertaining space and the wine cellar, is the outdoor space, which in and of itself defines resort-style living. The backyard is extensive and wonderfully secluded, comprised of an outdoor fireplace, spa, saltwater pool with water features, and neighboring dining patio, all serving as an opportune setting for relaxing or hosting gatherings.


The rooms upstairs each offer a perfect view of the beauty surrounding the house – particularly the spacious master suite, which includes a decadent fireplace and adjacent sitting area along with a balcony that overlooks the landscaped yard and gardens.


The beauty and richness of the master carries on with a spa-like ensuite bathroom area that enthralls with its beautifully appointed mosaic tile work surrounding the soaking tub as well as the woodwork that makes up the vanity and surrounding decor, not to mention the large window’s invitation of light.


This 5-bedroom estate transforms everyday life into a permanent vacation, where the sun seems to shine bright through every room of the property, the al fresco dining is always best and the opulent layout makes up the home that people always dream about. A rare and wonderful property, 1221 Wellington Avenue is one to behold.
