Property description

Charming 1920's Cottage steps away from California Institute of Technology and South Lake shopping district. This 1100 square feet single family home with plenty of windows and natural light has a great view of the San Gabriel Mountain range, and just a few blocks from San Marino's mansions.
It includes a full working kitchen (gas stove) a large breakfast room with washer/dryer.
Two Bedrooms each have queen sizes beds and a comfortable pull out sofa is in the living room. The dining room can seat six people beautifully.
Wireless Internet, TV with DVD player. Clean linens and towels, Iron and ironing board. Hardwood floor, original artwork makes this home a fresh experience, giving a southern California feel.
Central Air Conditioning and Heat.
Outside sitting area.
Do not be surprise to find local organic eggs in your welcome basket and with a little luck a local tour in our Traction Avant almost as old as the cottage....
The house is located a block from Cal Tech, two blocks from South Lake shopping District. Less than a mile from the Historic Langham Hotel founded by the Huntingtons. A little over a mile from the Huntington Library in San Marino which is a lovely walk. In the opposite direction about the same distance sits the The Pacific Asia Museum and the Pasadena Museum of California Art. A mile further is the Famed Norton Simon Museum with Old town Pasadena's exciting venues of bars and wonderful restaurants.
The historic Santa Anita Race track is but a 10 minute drive and we are 5 blocks from the Rose Parade route on Colorado and 3 miles from the Rose bowl.
If you like hiking the trails at the top of Lake Avenue will be a delight with a spectacular view of Southern California including Catalina Island.
Public transportation is available close by with the Metro Gold Line to downtown Los Angeles and beyond.
Several grocery stores (Traders Joe's/ Fresh& Easy) are within walking distance as well as a Peet's coffee and a Starbucks. Whole Food is less than 2 miles away.
Movie theaters are close by.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions,
all emails will be responded within 24 hours or less.
Thank You & Happy Travel.
