A wall of open air frames an indoor-outdoor living room at a Pasadena home to usher in the lush greenery. With floor-to-ceiling pocket doors the melt away the border between inside and outside, the vibrant trees complement the neutral-hued de la mode ambiance of the interiors. Outside this new construction home lies the historic Ambassador Gardens, where developer etco Homes has built 78 homes to border the heart of the zen-like environment. Called The Terraces at Ambassador Gardens, the homes evoke just that: a tranquil feeling on outdoor terraces, whether they’re ground-floor or third-story.

Featuring interiors by Los Angeles-based designer Meredith Baer, the home features spacious layouts with tones of brass-handled dining chairs and leafy houseplants to create a modern yet warm style. To create depth, the home’s design includes oversized windows where the gardens act as a living portrait in bedrooms and bathrooms.

Homes like this one at The Terraces range from single-story homes to tri-level townhomes and penthouses with rooftop decks and outdoor living rooms complete with views of the gardens. Each home offers its own private elevator, in-home laundry room, generous bedrooms with the option to transform into an additional walk-in closet or office, and state-of-the-art kitchens.

Aside from the Ambassador Gardens as your backyard, The Terraces also grant owners access to a 24-7 concierge to assist with everything from secure package delivery to dry-cleaning, to even dog-walking and in-home organization. Home prices begin from the $2 millions. To learn more, visit www.pasadenaperfected.com.
