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.

Stately country-style home in La Cañada Flintridge built in 1923 for the family of Standish L. Mitchell, a former CEO of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
As it happens, Sumner Hunt and Silas Burns designed the 5,492 square-foot home. They also designed the club’s recognizable headquarters in University Park—as well as the Southwest Museum. (Hunt also designed the original plans for the Bradbury Building.)
If the home looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in one of its many film appearances. Additionally, the residence has played prominent roles in the original In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, The Good German, and The House Bunny. (Interiors subbed in for the Playboy Mansion).
