Pasadena Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Three apartments in a Victorian Estate available

Welcome to The Pinney House! Built in 1887 as one of the original railroad hotels. The house features eight suites, up to four of which are available for short-term rental (the rest are rented out on a yearly basis). A stunning grand dame from a bygone era, lovingly restored with a feeling of community and goodwill. Enjoy your own high-ceiling, Victorian private room with your own personal bathroom and shared common areas in a home with fun, welcoming, and engaging occupants.

Our short-term rental suites are located on the first and second floor:

The Perry Mason suite has a queen bed, two closets, cable TV, and mountain views.

The Newsom Suite, which has its own entrance and outside sitting area, has a queen bed, a day bed in an adjoining room, a decorative fireplace and mantle, cable TV, and mountain views.

The Bob Hope Suite on the second floor features high ceilings- bedroom and sitting room. Outrageous marble master bath with twin vanities, walk-in shower, and whirlpool tub. 270 degree views. Private balcony.Walk-in closet.

The Barbara Stanwyck Suite is located on the second floor it features high ceilings, a large bedroom or living room and adjoining entry. Wonderful bath with clawfoot tub. Garden and City views.

Enjoy our lovely gardens or walk to the Village of Sierra Madre, hike in Bailey Canyon or any of our other numerous mountain trails. At the Pinney House you are close to such events as the Rose Parade, or such venues as Caltech, the Arboretum and Huntington Gardens, yet you are able to enjoy the peace and quiet that can only be found in a small town. You can sit on our front porch and listen to the wings of the hummingbirds, or take a walk about our friendly neighborhood, while everyone else is dealing with the noise and mess of downtown.

PLEASE NOTE: We do not allow pets. We are truly sorry as our own dog has to reside at a neighbors. There is overnight cage free boarding for dogs and cats at the nearby Shabby Dog. www.theshabbydog.com 626-836-5452 from all accounts they are amazing and only about 4 blocks away.

Greg and Judy Asbury acquired the Pinney House in 2003. They are active engaged hosts who have painstakingly renovated the 10,000 square foot Queen Anne Victorian over the past 10 years. Obviously they have either incredible dedication or they are still questioning their sanity in taking this on.

The Pinney House was designed by the famous Victorian architects Joseph and Samuel Cather Newsom. There are only a very few of their works still in existence. Unlike most Victorians it is open and airy. Originally a mountain retreat it has had a history of renewing and healing energy in its 125 year history. There are several permanent residents including Judy and Greg who have created a pleasant collegial atmosphere in the house.

Judy and Greg love the quaint village of Sierra Madre with its artisan shops, the Playhouse, and great restaurants. Sierra Madre is like 'Mayberry in LA'. It's also very close to Pasadena including Old Town, the Huntington Gardens, the Rose Bowl, and we are conveniently near the end of the Rose Parade route. Its always fun to go down to see the floats during Post Parade during New Years Day. Sierra Madre has its own Farmer's Market on Wednesdays and a much larger one close by on Saturdays at PHS.

We have four grown children. During the renovation we all lived in the house together including their spouses enjoying each other's company. We hosted our daughter's wedding and several years later our first grandchild arrived at the Pinney House.

Today we travel extensively on business and want to share this lovely place with you. When in town you can often find Greg or Judy on the front porch or in the solarium having a glass of wine and cheese. And when we are not here Sonia is our fabulous house manager. Join us!

Greg or Judy Asbury, owners purchased this apartment in 2003

The Newsom brothers were to Victorian Architecture like Frank Lloyd Wright was to modernist houses or Greene and Greene were to Craftsman Houses. There are only a few remaining examples of their prolific works. The Carson Mansion in Eureka was perhaps their penultimate achievement. The Pinney House was a rather simple example of a mountain retreat. Situated in the town of Sierra Madre, an oasis in greater Los Angeles, the city has 3 square miles, less than 10,000 residents, no traffic lights, hiking, shopping, dining. All an attractive combination just minutes from downtown Los Angeles and its many attractions. Just ask anyone in town-- everyone has a story to tell about the Pinney House!

The Pinney House has been at the center of this community for over 125 years. Its sweeping veranda is a great place to relax and enjoy passersby. The Conservatory is a peaceful retreat that makes you feel part of nature while relaxing. The parlor echoes bygone days .
