Twilight Open Thursday, August 17th, from 5:30-8pm
Escape to your very own oasis atop La Viña’s highest cul-de-sac. This elegant estate provides an abundance of privacy, miles of unobstructed views, and a host of luxurious amenities that make this home stunning. Upon entry, vaulted nine-foot ceilings and crown moulding capture one’s attention. Downstairs, three fireplaces provide an aura of warmth and intimacy. The gourmet kitchen, equipped with a large center island, granite counter tops, and a butler’s pantry, connects openly to the expanded family and informal morning rooms. The custom extension of the family room provides numerous French doors to the backyard, creating an ideal space for entertaining. Upstairs offers three bedrooms and a loft space perfect for a private office, play room, or teenage retreat
Additionally, the master suite includes a balcony overlooking the San Gabriel Valley, a spacious walk-in closet with new built-ins, and a luxurious bathroom with dual sinks, soaking tub, and a separate stall shower. Many upgrades, such as the hand-distressed wood flooring of the staircase and upstairs, travertine marble floors, and Andersen windows and doors, enhance the home’s elegance. The true luster, however, lies uncorked in the walk-in wine cellar enclosed by stone and mahogany. Is there a better way to enjoy the view of distant Catalina Island than poolside with friends and a glass of wine from your own cellar? Welcome home to 606 Church Canyon, your sanctuary in the city.

This year Monrovia’s Fourth of July Concert & Fireworks show featured live music by Night Owl, a decorating contest and of course, a fireworks show! Photos courtesy of Pasadena Star News.

Quaint 1920s cottage in Altadena seeks $620K
216 WEST TERRACE STREET | ALTADENA 91001
Open House Saturday & Sunday 2-4pm
This charming cottage in the foothills was built in 1925, and it sits in a small community of similar cottages developed and designed by E.P. Janes, a businessman from New York.
The Altadena house’s charm extends indoors. Textured walls, wood floors, arched windows, and barrel and coved ceilings help the residence maintain a cozy cottage feeling that’s amplified by a fireplace and its little niche.
The dwelling holds three bedrooms, at least one of which appears to be in use as a workshop or office.
The rear yard, though mostly concrete, does have mature fruit trees, plenty of space, and a detached garage.
The 1920s house last sold in 2008 for $460,000. It’s now asking $620,000.
