Arts & Crafts Bungalow in Eagle Rock Featured on Curbed LA

CurbedLA-feature-header

Bright 768-Square-Foot Cottage in Eagle Rock Asks $675K

Bonus: It's got a large, converted studio in the backyard

By Bianca Barragan

This article was originally published on Curbed LA

2324 RIDGEVIEW AVENUE, EAGLE ROCK 90041

This little Eagle Rock cottage is just under a mile south of the neighborhood's main drag, Colorado Boulevard. Built in 1924, its interior is newly renovated. While the house has period doors and doorknobs and hinges, it also has a fancy, modern Duravit sink and central air conditioning and heating. Copper plumbing and a newish roof on the main residence have also been added.

The green cabinets in the kitchen are a rare touch of bold color in the bright, white house. The theme carries into the house's one and a half bathrooms, which sport white subway tiles.

The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a sliding barn door, and an adjoining patio deck. The deck looks out onto the backyard, where there’s a 400-square-foot studio. The studio has "custom made accordion doors" that open fully onto the yard.

Located just off Eagle Rock Boulevard, the 768-square-foot house is asking $675,000.

Discover Beautiful Sierra Madre


MAKING THE MOVE TO SIERRA MADRE

Sierra Madre is a small but vibrant city in the foothills of the San Gabriel Valley. Historically, it has been linked to the old mountain resorts of the San Gabriel Mountains and Valley, and retains that "village" atmosphere and community spirit. The city offers a charming downtown shopping district and a wide range of entertainment and festivals for residents and visitors throughout the year. Below are some of our most recent listings from beautiful Sierra Madre.

DISCOVER SIERRA MADRE

Sierra Madre has the world's largest blossoming plant, a Wistaria that's called One of the Seven Horticultural Wonders of the World. The plant is over 100 years old, and the annual festival attracts thousands to see this, fragrant specimen displaying gorgeous shades of purple and lavender.

 

Memorial Park is a historic landmark park dedicated to Sierra Madre residents that served in the US Armed forces, and includes monuments, a band shell, playground and more. The park is a cornerstone of the city,  hosting public events throughout the year.

 

pioneer
Sits on 2.3 beautiful acres, the cemetary was established in 1882 by Nathaniel Carter, the founder of the city and sits among coastal live oaks and Englemann oaks. Many of the original founding families of Sierra Madre are buried here, as well as the numerous veterans from the Civil War & Vietnam.

 

 

Nestled at the foot of the historic Mount Wilson Trail are Lizzie's Trail Inn, which began life as a lunch stand and Richardson House began as a small 2-room pioneer cabin. Both were built in the 1890s and today are museums open to the public.

Podley Welcomes Mandy Liu to the La Cañada Office!

LiuM_HeadshotCMA1 copyMandy Liu’s passion for real estate and business began when she was in high school. During her first year in college Mandy launched her first fashion shoe boutique and by her fourth year of college she owned four stores which provided her the means to purchase three beautiful real estate properties near her university.

Upon finishing grad school at George Washington University, Mandy worked for two years at the Hyatt Hotel as a Guest Relations Manager. She spent the next two years as the assistant to the Secretary of the U.S. Department of Labor, Elaine Chao. After President Bush’s administration, Mandy joined the Office of Federal Compliance Programs acting as a Managerial Effectiveness Analyst where she learned to master and utilize her analytical skills.

Mandy’s prior experience has allowed her to have a keen understanding of the real estate model and investment procedures. As such, Mandy has successfully helped friends and family with investment opportunities through the acquisition of properties spanning from the east to the west coast. Because of her association with an immigration law firm, Mandy has traveled on numerous occasions to China to conduct presentations for EB-5 visa investors allowing her to refer many of these individuals to invest in U.S. real estate.

Mandy has traveled across the globe, interacted with diverse cultures, tasted their cuisines, and has created long lasting relationships at every stop.   Ultimately Mandy returns to the place she loves and calls home, Los Angeles. The active life style this city has to offer allows Mandy to enjoy sporting activities such as golf, tennis, swimming and, one of her favorite hobbies, hiking. As your Realtor®, Mandy is very familiar with top ranking schools, beautiful parks, artistic communities and up-and-coming areas; She will take pride in having you as a client, working for you on a daily basis whether it’s for the purchase or sale of real estate properties.

Podley Welcomes Derek Podrebarac to the Monrovia Office

PodrebacD_Headshot2016_CMA copyDerek Podrebarac has spent his life living across the San Gabriel Valley, being born in Pasadena, growing up in La Crescenta and living in South Pasadena, Monrovia and now where he currently lives, Sierra Madre.

In high school and college Derek studied architecture, which he still continues to learn about and develop his knowledge in today. Architecture is also the root of Derek’s desire to become a licensed Realtor®. Having worked in sales and purchasing for the past 20 years, he decided to move into selling something that he loves and truly believes in. Along with this passion, he brings his core values of integrity and hard work to the table for each and every one of his clients.

Derek also loves giving back to his community, serving extensively at his church and coaching his children’s little league teams for the past 7 years. He also runs a Challenger (a Little League division for special needs children) team in Sierra Madre, and is an assistant baseball coach at Maranatha High School in Pasadena. His motivation for serving his community stems from his pleasure in meeting and getting to know new people and their interests.
