Property description

There is a week minimum stay @ this Property........This Beautiful 1952 mid-century modern home, is located on the hillside in the Pasadena Rose Bowl area. The location is key. It is completely surrounded by nature and is unique in the privacy that it provides.

An Artist's Retreat; This is a rare gem of a home and truly provides a sense of peace and well being as you would find in worldwide retreats. It is a zen hideaway all your own to discover. It has two bedrooms and two renovated bathrooms with Designer Philippe Starck wall hung Toilets and a European Modern Kitchen. A well stocked kitchen makes staying at home for a meal delightful and cozy.The main floor overlooks and surrounds the original pool, which takes center stage, especially @ night when the turquoise blue glows and lights up the back yard. There is a cozy cabana off the poolside, which has three twin beds. There are two decks that are perched out over the canyon below. One covered balcony has a double bed. There is an original gas fireplace in the living room for cozy nights and floor to ceiling glass panel that make up half the room. Vienna wood floor and original Terrazzo Flooring throughout. This one must be viewed in person to receive the full effect. Sit on the balcony soaking up the sun, take a swim at your private modern tree-house. Do yoga or meditate in the quiet and serenity of the natural surroundings. Regain a sense of yourself and bask in the beauty of your private retreat.

This home is nestled within a private canyon in the Rose Bowl area of Pasadena, California. A short five minute drive from Old Town Pasadena for dining, shopping, movies, museums and groceries. It is a great base for exploring nearby Los Angeles and just far away enough to get lost in the serenity of the natural landscape that surrounds this beautiful zen Hideaway. The house is designed around a refreshing vintage pool. Beds are situated on the covered balconies to sleep under the stars and be one with nature as if in a modern tree-house. Due to the traquility of nature set in a wonderfully private neighborhood that surrounds together with respect for the neighbors there are to be no parties at this home. This home is for those who come to soak in the beauty which surrounds both outdoors as well as from inside this home. A zen base from where to regain your senses.

Please View the Video to feel the essence of this Zen Hideaway....... Peace.

Here's the latest Review ......
Five Stars,'Secluded Luxury' , August 8, 2011By Elmer Marx (Juneau, Alaska USA)
Our family of four stayed in this beautiful home for a week of R and R. Although it is located less than five minutes from Old Town Pasadena, the house has an isolated feel. There are no close neighbors within view. Our two children loved the pool and enjoyed the trails and wildlife on the property. We spotted a mother and baby dear, a falcon, and numerous rabbits from the upper sleeping balcony. The home is tastefully and artistically decorated and has a wonderful, open floor plan with plenty of light and warmth. We would certainly return to this delightful home. The house is located close to Hollywood, Universal Studios, the LA Zoo, Eaton Canyon and other attractions. Old Town Pasadena has great shopping, theaters and dining. We enjoyed the Gold Class Cinema where we were served dinner with the movie. We recommend this house to all.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Hello... Thank you for your interest in my private retreat for your stay in the Los Angeles Area. After traveling the globe for 25 years, I have had the pleasure of experiencing the world's Best. From Castles to farm homes to thatched huts to a tent in the Sahara and this is the spot that has stopped me in my tracks of traveling. A place to reflect, regain your senses and relax. This home is for those who have an appreciation for Mid-Century Modern Architecture, Art, Nature and Lifestyle. I offer this home as an exclusive stay in an Artist's Home.

Why the Owner Chose North Arroyo, Pasadena, CA, USA:
I am originally from Long Island, N.Y. I have lived in Pasadena for the last 31 as my homebase while traveling. It was originally attending nearby Art Center College of Design, which brought me to Pasadena and I have stayed in the area ever since graduating. My background is in Film, Photography, Interior & Garden Design. I feel that Pasadena is a World Class City, offering Culture and The Arts. The Norton Simon Museum, The Huntington Library & Botanical Gardens, The Rose bowl Stadium and National New Years Day Parade to name a few of my favorites. It has an east coast feeling as you drive through the tree lined streets. However as you look out from the home into the distance you are transported and you could be anywhere in the world.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tranquility. Rest. Relaxation. Privacy. Balance.
