What originally attracted you to this home?
The property is located in an open, park-like setting (terrific views of trees, mountains), no buildings on top of each other, no neighbors looking in at you. Access to tennis courts and swimming pool. The interior space has a “happy living” vibe. The vaulted living and dining rom ceiling gives this space an open feel.
What do you like about the neighborhood?
Near Old Town Pasadena, easy freeway access. I love the area of the city this property is located – lots of old Pasadena history here, nestled among beautiful tree lined streets. It’s a wonderful walking neighborhood. This property sits across the street, Orange Grove Blvd., from an historical landmark neighborhood with distinguished homes designed by noted architects including Frank Lloyd Wight, “La Miniatura” on Rosemont Ave., Charles & Henry Greene (Greene & Greene), The Gamble House on Westmoreland Place (the “ultimate” California Bungalow) Mary Cole and Robert Culbertson Homes, all just steps away. Plus, the property is close to Old Town Pasadena. I often walk to Old Town with it’s shops, restaurants and iPic theater. The world class Norton-Simon Museum is 3 blocks away – a great space to spend an afternoon. All this and easy freeway access!
Where do you shop?
Ralph’s Freshfare, The Container Store and many of the specialty one-of-a-kind shops in Old Town.

For really unique shopping, the internationally recognized Rose Bowl Flea Market, every 2nd Sunday of the month.
