Property description

The Magical Modern is a retreat, a quiet sanctuary for individuals, small families, or small groups.

Wake up, walk out, and pick a mysteriously sweet grapefruit for breakfast, one of the many unique offerings of this dreamy mid-century home designed by local legend Theodore Pletsch with the original owner, the designer Jean Crowell.

A luxurious hideaway mere steps from the Arroyo, this gated refuge has two generous bedrooms with California king beds and private baths; a double-height living room filled with contemporary art and a large TV; a kitchen, dining room, laundry room; and an additional ¾ bath. The master bedroom, dining room and living all open directly onto a loggia connecting the house to the landscaped grounds, which include an overscaled Roman-style pool framed by river-rock walls and century-old oaks and a deluxe one-bedroom guesthouse with its own kitchen. Both the main house and the guesthouse have HDTV service as well as high-speed internet linked to a password-protected wifi network.

The home is well-situated, a block from the route of the Rose Parade, two blocks from the recreation opportunities of the Arroyo Seco, walking distance to shopping, bars, and restaurants, and a short drive to Old Town Pasadena, and other Pasadena amenities.

PLEASE NOTE:

THE MAGICAL MODERN IS IN A QUIET NEIGHBORHOOD. IT IS NOT AN EVENT HOUSE NOR A LOCATION FOR FILM OR PHOTO SHOOTS. IT IS CRUCIAL TO EXPRESS ANY DESIRE TO HOST A GATHERING OR SHOOT OF ANY SORT DURING YOUR STAY AT THE MAGICAL MODERN.

This property is for LODGING purposes ONLY. We do NOT allow outside guests to come in for dinner PARTIES or EVENTS (e.g., birthdays, graduations, weddings, reunions, memorials, etc.) without explicit permission.

PERMISSION MAY POTENTIALLY be obtained from the owners for a small gathering of up to 6 outside guests to visit the home for a meal or get together.

IF PERMISSION IS NOT GRANTED AND OUTSIDE GUESTS 'NOT LISTED' ON THE RENTAL AGREEMENT ARE BROUGHT INTO THE HOME, THE ENTIRE $1500.00 SECURITY DEPOSIT WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY FORFEITED.

Thank you for your respectfulness in this matter.
