Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am a mother of 4 wonderful children, 2 girls, ages 21 and 22 and 2 boys, 24 and 36. I am also a grandmother of two. I own and operate 3 child development centers in my community. These centers provide child care services, in addition to early intervention and therapeutic services to children with special needs. I also have a passion and knack for interior/exterior design and in 2006, I purchased and completely renovated this home, which I live in, when I'm not traveling and exploring. It turned out gorgeous, and I decided to rent it out so that others may enjoy it, while I was traveling the globe. I hope you enjoy my home, as much as I do. :)

Why the Owner Chose Northridge, Los Angeles, CA, USA:
There is a lot of attention to detail. The house is clean and organized and many amenities are provided. All who have visited, truly have enjoyed their stay and so will you along with your family and friends!!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Enjoy the peace and tranquility of my home. Rich earth tones, natural finishes (stone and wood mostly) make this house both inviting and enchanting. Almost every room looks out into the beautiful back yard. Perennials are planted bi-annually, which adds gorgeous color to the grounds. The views are breathtaking. Ducks stop by every Spring to enjoy the yard on their way South. Relax by the beautiful outdoor pool and spa, while listening to your favorite tunes on our outdoor speakers. The spa is great for taking a soak after a long day touring around the city. The pool is great for taking a dip or swimming. During the Summer the pool stays pretty warm, anywhere from 82 - 86 degrees. During the off season, you may request to have the pool heated to 82 degrees at an additional charge. Be sure to inquire. There are beautiful gas fireplaces indoors and outdoors that can warm you up toasty during the Winter when it gets a little chilly at night and are wonderful for relaxing by, while having a glass of wine or reading a good book. You can also enjoy watching movies on my large screen TV in the family room or master bedroom. I have cable with movie channels and netflix access on my television as well as a personal dvd library with over 150 hit movies to choose from. There is a sound system throughtout the entire house, including the back yard which is accessed through Sonos. Just download the free app on your phone or ipod and you can play all your own music or pandora or ... The kitchen is spacious and fully stocked and ready for those who enjoy the culinary arts. There is also a formal dining room with sitting for 8 and another less formal sitting room with a table that seats 4 - 8 people (just add chairs). I thoroughly enjoy my game room that has a beautiful bar, a pool table, surround sound speakers for music and 2 tvs. It is beautifully decorated and can be a perfect place for hanging out in and having a cocktail . . . . or two. ;)
