A gourmet kitchen that looks like it was taken right from the pages of Architectural Digest. Expansive entertainment spaces with bi-fold doors to the outdoors that make them even more alluring. Up to 3,865 square feet with three bedrooms and up to three baths with two powder rooms. That’s just a taste of what Plan 8A at Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens has to offer and a few of the many reasons why these new luxury homes in Old Town Pasadena are so popular with high-end buyers.
Plan 8A is a spacious single-level flat offering three bedrooms and three and one-half baths in 3,407 square feet on levels one, two, and three of Terraces. On level four, the plan offers three bedrooms and three baths in 3,865 square feet with the addition of a spectacular mezzanine featuring an entertainment room, one of the home’s two powder rooms, and a view-oriented roof terrace (per unit location).
This plan was designed to meet the needs of today’s modern homebuyers, many of whom are moving down from high-maintenance estates and seeking a lock-and-leave experience with expansive floorplans offering great entertainment spaces and luxurious features and design elements that appeal to their sense of style. “We took particular interest in providing the highest level of finishes as standard in these homes,” said Joy Maine, Vice President of Marketing & Design for etco HOMES, builder and developer of Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens. “Buyers, even in the luxury market, are accustomed to having to upgrade to achieve this level of finishes. However, we felt strongly about designing every aspect of the interiors to complement the exquisite exterior design and the Ambassador Gardens setting, establishing a new standard for luxury townhomes and flats in Old Town Pasadena.”
Plan 8A units on level one of Terraces’ new luxury homes in Old Town Pasadena feature a wall of bi-fold doors that push aside to reveal seamless indoor-outdoor living, with a large porch that extends the living space and drinks in the serene scenery. The amazing porch is also accessed by French doors from the en-suite bedroom two. On levels two through four, the bi-fold doors in the great room open to a spectacular large deck.
Overlooking the great rooms in all 8A plans are the gourmet kitchens. Italian Linea Quattro flat-panel, European-style cabinetry in designer-selected finishes in combination with miles of Caesarstone® countertops bisected by a stainless steel Wolf® 5-Burner cooktop and separate double-ovens set the luxurious tone. An oversized, counter-height island with eating bar keeps the space open and functional while fostering further entertainment possibilities, and ASCO® professional appliances and built-in Subzero® refrigerators finish the spaces.
Each of these new luxury homes in Old Town Pasadena also offers: a private third bedroom and full bath at the back of the unit, making it perfect for visiting guests. Hardwood flooring with 5˝ planks and premium carpeting make strolling through the luxury flats a pleasure, and retreating at the end of the day to the resort-style master suite affords a sumptuous experience. Each of these beautiful suites offers additional bi-fold doors leading to private outdoor areas, along with enormous master closets and spa baths with floating cabinets, frameless glass shower enclosures, and drop-in or freestanding tubs.
These single-story flats are the perfect answer for homeowners who are seeking out new luxury homes in Old Town Pasadena that maximize livability and afford unmatched freedom to enjoy all the best of the area without having to get in a car.
