Priceless Pasadena Estate Lives Like a Resort, Feels Like Home: 1137 Parkview Avenue

egpimaging_1137parkview_203_hiresThis was their forever home, a home impeccably researched and designed to mirror grand Southern estates, but a home that gracefully and graciously enriched the family who called it home since 2000.  Six beautiful children and countless others rode the tire swing out front, climbed the rock wall in the back, rode the zip line into the pool, cruised skateboards down the half-pipe on the tennis court, and enjoyed amazing 4th of July parties overlooking Rose Bowl and neighboring fireworks, strewn across the valley. Over the past year, Realtors, neighbors and potential buyers left this property in awe, not only because this home is an architectural masterpiece, but also because it evokes perplexing emotions of deep warmth, beauty, and abiding comfort, where you least expect it…in an over 10,000 square foot estate, sprawling over an acre. “This is the most beautiful home I have ever seen; why would they ever leave?” was the most common response from visitors. Perhaps if we all woke up to amazing sunrises peaking over the San Gabriels or experienced majestic sunset light on the foothills bidding each day adieu, surrounded by unthinkable beauty, we might believe, deep down, that there is more out there to experience, that anything is possible…even moving a few thousand miles away to find even rarer beauty.  The Maloney Group was truly privileged to have experienced 1137 Parkview over the last fourteen years, deeply honored to have helped sell it, and humbled to have been able to warmly welcome the new family last week to this unforgettable setting that they will carry with them long after they leave. [Since the LA Times featured the home this weekwithout a picture, we thought we’d share some with you all.]
