                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1979

                  About the owner: Owner is a lover of the outdoors and the house reflects this love.

                  Why the Owner Chose Pasadena:
                  This is a home away from home. We love the mountains, the hiking trails, waterfalls, friendly Altadenans, and all the trees. Originally wanted to have horses, but too much work for the kids. We are open to sharing our pleasures with others.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This is a home that is a vacation. It has spas, Jacuzzis, a gym, picnic areas, wide open views of mountains, trees, skies, and trails everywhere, kid's venture valley. It is 20 minutes from the hustle and bustle of downtown LA with nature at your doorstep for relaxation. Horseriding ring nearby with local instructors. It is a 1-1/2 acre spread that is in continual change with additions and upgrades to make it a 24 hour-365 day vacation. It is a historical ranch styled house built during the depression with large rooms, spaciousness, and modernized for today's living.
