Oopsie! I just realized that I totally forgot to share with you the houses I love that just went on the market last week. I'm so sorry, with the first week of school for the twiddos and all the shenanigans surrounding that, it completely slipped my mind. The good news is that I have some really great vintage houses to share with you this week, including a Spanish style, the quaintest little cottage that looks like it came out of a storybook, a mid-century modern nestled in the canyon, and a little gem for all you tiny house hunters. So lets get started.
First up is this beautiful Spanish Revival. Along with the purchase of this house you get a piece of history. You see in 1921 the Hollywood family decided to call Pasadena home and built their dream Spanish style home and raise their family there. The house has stayed in the family since then, a true testament to it's comfort and style. There are so many lovely original details, along with a fantastic space for those of you who love to entertain. There is a huge family room complete with a large bar and wet bar. I can just imagine the parties that were hosted in this room, and the different styles of music that have grazed it throughout the years. What kind of party would you throw? To own a little piece of Pasadena history you can purchase this home for $799,000.
Next up is this cute little cottage. You feel like you stepped into a story book vacation as soon as you walk in. At only 975 square feet, it still boast an amazing 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Although not officially considered a tiny house, this is a great little Cape Cod style house for families who want to downsize and enjoy other things in life. The backyard is perfect for children to run around in, and there is plenty of space to entertain outside. This adorable cottage in Altadena is listed at $509,000.
Okay, now I have one for you Tiny House Hunters. This little cottage is situated in the downtown area of Covina. Its a small 1 bedroom/ 1 bath, with an additional studio/guest house. Although I haven't seen the inside of this one, I do know that it has hardwood floors and a remodeled bathroom. This would be a fun little artist retreat. Its also zoned for units so you could potentially add another unit to live in or to rent out. This little gem is offered at $369,000.
So you wanna live in a tree house? Nested in the Sierra Madre Canyon is this great mid-century home. Imagine the shopping spree you could have at West Elm or better yet at your local vintage furniture galleries. Sorry, I always go there (I love to decorate). Just look at those large windows with views for days of both the canyon and the city lights. The big deck is perfect for entertaining. Did I mention there is a spa? This beauty if priced at $665,000.
