About the property


***30 night minimum (city ordinance)***

****non-smoking property****

Enjoy a charming, beautifully-furnished mountain-view bungalow with a private tranquil garden. Dine under olive or fig trees (two outdoor dining areas); relax on the sunny back patio or in the shade of the camphor tree. Cook up a storm in the well-equipped kitchen. Wake up to mountain views. Enjoy friendly neighbors and shy deer. Walk to great restaurants and shops in "downtown" Sierra Madre. Hop on the nearby 210 for Old Town Pasadena, Huntington Library, CalTech, JPL, and more; take the Gold Line to LA.

You'll have a queen bed, an armoire and closet for plenty of storage. The retro bathroom offers a shower over tub, obviously a toilet, sink with lots of counter space, and a medicine cabinet for all your necessities.

The kitchen is compact with loads of counter space, plenty of pots, pans, and cooking implements, dishes and glassware that will make meal prep easy. A microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, stove, and of course a sink are all there, too. You're welcome to use herbs and spices that are on hand.

The living room is furnished with comfortable Arts & Crafts furniture and accessories, wifi and cable TV, a well-stocked bookcase . It's totally private, yet has an expansive view of the San Gabriel Mountains. Sitting at the dining table is almost like being outside. It's a lovely place to eat or to work, if you can tear yourself from the view of the mountains, watching hikers on Mt Wilson Trail, following soaring eagles or a raucous flock of green parrots.

This is a little piece of paradise in a wonderful community!

About Tanya Lazar

California born and bred, I moved to southern California 13 years ago to be a grandma. Now a mostly retired landscape designer. I love travel, being with friends old and new, gardening, reading, nature, walking or hiking, volunteer work (Pasadena Playhouse, Gamble House), most animals, cooking & eating! I also find myself renovating funky old houses, including this one, which was a very sad derelict that I've turned (with lots of help!) into a yummy little jewel.

Tanya Lazar purchased this bungalow in 2008

Why Tanya Lazar chose Sierra Madre

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 great year round here. The neighborhood is super-friendly; we watch out for each other, and help each other out.

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 in one of many restaurants. Hang out at Beantown, take a leisurely stop at the pub, stop by Mother Moo's Creamery for AMAZING ice cream, or simply stroll through town to check out charming houses and gardens--and perhaps meet the Vietnamese pot-bellied pig. Or head into the canyon for delicious meals at Mary's Market , or 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 and Arcadia Metro stations provides free parking for the Gold Line, which takes you to Union Station in downtown LA.

A cozy little cottage.

  • 4 of 5

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.

Beautiful Spot at the Foot of the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

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!
