Arden Villa – Pasadena’s Infamous and Private Grand Estate

Designed by the prestigious firm of Marston & Van Pelt with Palladianism in mind, Arden Villa is one of those grand estates that is all at once well-known yet private. Cloistered behind massive gates, which open to a 100-yard tree-lined driveway and away from prying eyes, the main residence offers grand entertainment rooms, a lavish master suite, 11 lavatories, game rooms, a wine cellar, and office space.

The grounds include vast manicured gardens, a tennis court, swimming pools, and plenty of tranquil spaces. The recent addition of a secondary residence located at 1145 Arden has created the opportunity for a truly private compound. Arden Villa is known as the “Dynasty Mansion,” as it is home to the infamous lily pond where the 1980s TV drama’s Krystle and Alexis played out one of their classic catfights.

Enduring design, charming upgrades, and permanent pedigree make this Palladian masterpiece the perfect backdrop for a royal lifestyle with Olympian calm.
