About the owner: I, Margaret was raised in both Southern and Northern California and am a huge fan of California. I was happy to meet and marry Dennis---a good mid-western boy from Chicago in 2000. We cherish this really special property which we have totally remodeled.
Why the Owner Chose Pasadena: We visited this property at an open house Mother's Day 2001. It was a hot May Day and when we stood on the patio overlooking Millard Canyon and felt the cool breeze and took in the amazing view we found home.
The Unique Benefits at this Studio: Views and natural beauty! Very comfortable and roomy for the business traveler. Enjoy a soak in the jacuzzi after a long work day!
