California born and bred, I moved to southern California 12 years ago to be a grandma. Now a mostly retired landscape designer. Love travel, being with friends old and new, gardening, reading, nature, walking or hiking, volunteer work (Pasadena Playhouse, Gamble House), most animals, cooking & eating! Also find myself renovating funky old houses, including this one, which was a very sad derelict that is now a yummy little jewel.
Tanya Lazar purchased this bungalow in 2008
I LOVE Sierra Madre! It's a small town adjacent to trendy Pasadena & bustling LA, nestled up against the San Gabriel Mountains, which you'll see from all the north-facing windows! I gutted the house and started over (except the built-in closets & the bathroom), so it's a very comfortable arts & crafts style home (tho not an A&C bungalow). The garden, all new except for the trees, I designed for maximum outdoor living, which is good year round here.
It's a perfect town for walking--whether into "downtown" for errands (post office, drug store, Taylor's Market for a fantastic butcher shop, Arnold's old fashioned hardware store, or shopping the boutiques or art center), or for an al fresco meal, hanging out at Beantown, a leisurely stop at a pub, an ice cream shop, or simply to take a stroll through town to check out charming houses and gardens--and perhaps meet the new Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. Or head into the canyon for Mary's Market popovers, or to explore some of the tiny streets and "secret" paths. Or maybe walk 5 minutes to Mt Wilson trail for a hike (1.5 -7.5 miles each way!) , or go to Bailey Canyon for another hike.
Santa Anita Racetrack, the Arboretum & Santa Anita Mall are minutes away. In addition to their various garden areas, the Arboretum offers summer pops concerts. Huntington library, museums, and botanical gardens are just a few minutes farther.
Nearby Pasadena offers loads of trendy restaurants, bars, cafes, & shops, several movie theaters, famous Pasadena Playhouse, Boston Court theater, museums, Gamble House, flea markets at the Rose Bowl & Pasadena Cty College, to name a few of the attractions.
Sierra Madre Villa Metro station provides free parking for the Gold Line, which takes you to Union Station in downtown LA.

🍷 Cozy, comfortable home
🌳 Outdoor living with privacy
🍳 Very well equipped kitchen
What a wonderful location! This very cute bungalow is extremely comfortable in a lovely green enclave. One large bedroom, one nice sitting room, a galley kitchen. Huge picture windows offer a panorama of the San Gabriel Mountains. The decor is carefully curated Arts & Crafts style. The landlord is wonderful and generous and accommodating. You'll feel right at home. The tiny neighborhood is off the main road, so there's not a lot of traffic. But it's a short walk down to cute little old Sierra Madre, where you can find some nice restaurants, an ice cream parlor, a cute little community theater, and lovely parks. I would absolutely stay here again!
