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.

The cottage was well maintained and amply furnished. It met all my expectations and needs. The owner was prompt and conscientious in responding to all my questions. I would stay there again in a heartbeat.
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!
