Owner info

Year Purchased: 1992

About the owner: The owners are John and Tomiko who love mountain hiking, ocean fishing and travel extensively often for three months at a time. John is an instuctor in international education and Tomiko is an international tour escourt.

Why the Owner Chose Sierra Madre, CA, USA:
Tomiko fell in love with this "Hobbit House" with its compact charm, mountain view and hummingbirds. Sierra Madre is one of the safest towns in L.A. county. In front of our home we enjoy sighting coyotes, deers, and an occasional bear.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This cottage was originally built in 1927 as a weekend mountain cabin. One can still observe some of the original tiny cabins in the neighborhood. You can walk a few minutes to the historical Mt. Wilson Trail and museum. This hiking path was first cleared by General George Patton`s grandfather, Benjamin Wilson, and later improved by Harvard University for the mule drawn transport of the new observatory telescope to the top.
