Home of the Week: Mediterranean romance in La Cañada Flintridge

A broad archway and circular fountain provide a graceful entrance to this classic Mediterranean on more than an acre of park-like grounds. The curving design elements are repeated in the carved-wood front doors, fireplaces and openings of the 1950s home. Other details of note include a den/billiards room with a vintage copper-topped bar and sets of French doors that return to an idyllic outdoor setting.
