Just steps from the Rose Parade route and within walking distance of the Rose Bowl in SW Pasadena, this newly renovated mid-century home is a luxurious retreat for relaxing in style. Enjoy lounging and dining in the light-filled living / dining room or outdoor terrace overlooking a beautiful private garden with pool and jacuzzi. A quiet sanctuary, Hillside House is perfect for individuals and small groups seeking a quiet repose while visiting the greater Pasadena/Los Angeles area.

The house is over 3,500 square feet, all on one level, three bedrooms and three bathrooms, and sleeps up to a max. of seven guests.

The Master Suite with king sized bed overlooks the pool garden and has an ensuite bathroom. Bedroom 2 has a king sized bed & looks out onto the private gated front garden. Bedroom 3 has a full sized bed & a twin bed and also faces out onto the private front garden. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a large ensuite bathroom with two separate sink areas.
Downtown LA is just six miles away, and three major freeways are within blocks, making all of LA and environs easily accessible. This house is suitable for an extended summer vacation, a spa getaway, or as a family Christmas/New Years base to enjoy the Rose Parade one a block away. Beautiful furnishings and totally equipped.
