Pasadena studio description

Private studio separate from main house with pool, Jacuzzi, fire pit and barbecue/entertainment space. Home is on a long narrow lot above Millard Canyon. The family home is up from the studio providing privacy for studio guests.

Home is adjacent to the Angeles National Forest and hiking trails are right out the door. Amazing mountain biking in El Prieto Canyon right outside the door.

Large flat screen TV with cable and internet. Home has a magnificent view to Catalina on a clear day and overlooks beautiful Millard Canyon.

Altadena is in the foothills right above Pasadena, twenty minutes from downtown LA and 45 minutes to Santa Monica beach. You really feel like you are getting away from it all but are very close to anything you might need.

Single travelers may choose to keep the couch a couch and use the very comfortable twin for sleeping. There is exercise equipment and a Lifecycle available. Desk with comfortable chair. Very comfortable for the extended stay traveler.

JPL is 2 miles away, Cal Tech is close. This would be a nice place to stay if you are visiting either of those places.
Come for a weekend retreat. A weekend spent in our studio could consist of coffee or tea pool side, hiking right outside the studio door, a relaxing massage on the pool deck or inside the roomy studio (additional fee to Muriel the masseuse) and a soak in the spa. It's a beautiful place to stay for a retreat.

Great option if your coming into town for the Rose Bowl games or parade. It's about a 5 mile drive. Sleeps 3 and guests are welcome to have their friends up for a barbecue.

Lounging by this pool makes you feel like you really are 'away from it all ' but your 15 minutes from Pasadena and 20 minutes from downtown LA. Very comfortable for business travelers.

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2002

                          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!
