A steeply arched portico supported by white columns creates a focal point for this black-shuttered Colonial in Altadena. The charm continues indoors with such details as a pineapple-shaped newel post cap, dentil molding, chair rails and hardwood floors. A covered patio creates a restful spot to enjoy the garden.
