This 1926 French Normandy Cottage situated on a quiet, tree-lined block in Altadena is rich in character and original details. Solid lath and plaster construction, curved archways that lead from room to room, and original oak floors all harken back to true architectural pride. The home also features many of its original copper light fixtures and a myriad of quaint built-ins. While staying true to its character, the home has also been methodically updated with period-inspired choices such as the hand-painted tile staircase and sustainable upgrades like bamboo and cork flooring. Upstairs, the generous master suite boasts floods of natural light and unimpeded views of the San Gabriel mountains. A cozy den between the formal living and dining rooms opens onto a brick patio and views of the lush landscaping and pool. The lengthy private driveway leads to detached finished bonus space, excellent for a home office or cabana. Mature oak, palm, grapefruit, lime trees, birds of paradise, flowering shrubs, vines, and other perennials selected by a licensed landscape architect populate the front and back yards. The home’s verdant landscaping goes far beyond the cosmetic: 2659 N Raymond Ave has the honorable designation of being a National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat.
