Almost Pasadena. File this one under strange but true. Almost Pasadena is a place in Pasadena and not in Pasadena at the same time. A place where some people live within the Pasadena city limits, some don’t live in any city at all, and some can leave the city of Pasadena without leaving the house. Continue reading

The Pinney House in Sierra Madre

Historic Sierra Madre Home For Sale

Ever dream of owning your own bed and breakfast? This might be the perfect opportunity for you! (***Conditional Use Permit pending***) Located at 225 N. Lima Street in Sierra Madre, The Pinney House is as close to a turn-key B&B you’ll ever see in the San Gabriel Valley. One reason is there aren’t very many bed and breakfasts to be found in these parts – you can probably count ’em all on the fingers of one hand. Another is the place was originally built as a hotel. By a Civil War surgeon, no less. Continue reading

Batchelder Fireplaces in Pasadena

I’ll never forget the day I found out my home had a Batchelder fireplace. Many years ago I was in a tile store in Pasadena and saw something that looked very familiar. I asked the salesperson, “what is that tile?” She said “it’s a Batchelder reproduction.” I said “I have that same tile on my fireplace.” Her eyes got huge and she exclaimed “you have a Batchelder fireplace?” I said “I do now.” Who knew?

Anyway, enough about me. This week I had the unexpected pleasure of viewing two homes for sale in Pasadena with exquisite Batchelder fireplaces.

East Mountain Street Pasadena

The first of these homes, located in the North Pasadena Heights Landmark District, features not one but two Batchelder fireplaces! Continue reading
