Overview

About the property

Hillside Retreat Mediterranean Style

My husband and I live in La Canada Flintridge, CA and have been married for over 30 years. We love people and enjoy welcoming new folks into our home. My husband is a retired contractor/builder and has built every house we have lived in. His love for nature and architecture resulted in the beautiful Mediterranean house that we live in the hills overlooking all of Los Angeles. I’m financial controller for a film production company and I'm looking forward to my retiring years. My husband and I love to cook and we are always fighting for control of the kitchen. We hope you come by soon so you can relax in a home that is filled with love, wonderful creations from the kitchen and take in the bright lights of the city from above.

Victoria purchased this house in 2008

Why Victoria chose Los Angeles area

We are located only 15 minutes from downtown Pasadena, filled with amazing dining, the Rose Bowl, museums and great night life. In addition to, we are also located 25 to 30 minutes from Downtown LA, Echo Park and the very trendy Sunset Traction. From Bob Hope Airport in Burbank, California the house is 35 minutes away by car. From LAX it will take you 45 minutes to get to our La Canada getaway.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is the best place to escape from the pressures of the city. It's the epitome of safety and quiet. Our house is in the middle of hills, our neighbors are the beautiful birds, gorgeous flowers, bright stars, tall trees, and the family of deer. In the morning enjoy a cup of coffee on the private deck and on a clear day see the mist rise from the beach as the sunrises.

Beautiful home overlooking the Rose Bowl!

  • 4 of 5

Vicotoria's home was absolutely beautiful! We enjoyed our 3 day stay while attending this year's Rose Bowl parade & game. Victoria & Izzy were very helpful in every way & so accomodating.

Simply excellent

  • 5 of 5

When we (my wife and I) arrived at the home, it looked even better than the pictures of the home that were posted on the Internet. The owners (Victoria and Izidor) were very friendly and made us feel comfortable in their home. The view from the bedroom that we stayed in is amazing. I'm surprised that Victoria and Izidor gave us the opportunity to stay at their home at a relatively inexpensive price. Even before our stay ended, I recommended the property to my sister. Downtown Pasadena is just a few miles away and has many restaurants, coffee shops, etc. Overall, the experience definitely exceeded our expectations.

Breathtaking view of Pasadena and the Rose Bowl

  • 4 of 5

This was our second visit to the wonderful home on the hill above Pasadena and the Rose Bowl. We enjoyed waking up in the morning to a beautiful view. Evenings overlooking the heart shaped pool and hot tub was so pleasant. The room was quiet and well suited to our taste in a Hollywood style. We will return for another visit in the future.

The place is beautiful. It was a nice place to rest my head on a very stressful week at work.
