Exquisite San Marino Manor
Poised at 1470 Circle Drive, one of San Marino’s most elite addresses, this dramatic 1925 Italian Period Revival exudes a rare feeling of seclusion and tranquility. Listed at $4,995,000, it’s a timeless blend of Old World elegance and modern amenities. 

Behind the impressive entrance, topped by a railed porch, spaces are rich with spectacular appointments, from beamed ceilings, wide French doors and arched doorways to elegant period details. The grand cook’s kitchen with stainless appliances and spacious eat-in island is served by a wide butler’s pantry with leaded glass cabinets. 

Nearby, a light-washed family room with walls of windows is highlighted by a peaked beamed ceiling and a wall of built-in bookshelves. An array of French doors accesses the stunning patio and yard. 

Upstairs, four bedrooms – two en-suite – are graced by views of the magnificent mature trees and landscape outside. One bedroom is currently outfitted as a home office with custom cabinetry. 

On the expansive grounds, classical fountains, patio niches, winding paths and lush greenery create a romantic European ambience. An impressive outdoor fireplace and built-in barbecue area make this an ideal setting for entertaining and al fresco dining. Nearby, a rock waterfall cascades into the pool, filling the air with sparkling sound. A broad, grassy lawn sweeps away beyond. 

This private world is ideally nestled between the exquisite Lacy Park and The Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens. The upscale shopping and dining of Old Pasadena are minutes away.

1470 Circle Drive is offered at $4,995,000 by Vicky Botsford and Jeff Botsford.
