MAGICAL MODERN NEAR THE ARROYO

Pasadena House Rental Photos and Description

Stately Modern with Pool And Guesthouse, Near the Arroyo.

This is not an event house or a location for film or photo shoots. It is a quiet sanctuary for individuals, small families, or small groups.

Wake up, walk out, and pick a mysteriously sweet grapefruit for breakfast, one of the many unique offerings of this dreamy mid-century home designed by local legend Theodore Pletsch with the original owner, Jean Crowell. A luxurious retreat mere steps from the Arroyo, this gated getaway has two generous bedrooms with California king beds and private baths; a double-height living room filled with contemporary art and a large TV; a kitchen, dining room, laundry room; and an additional ¾ bath. The master bedroom, dining room and living all open directly onto a loggia connecting the house to the landscaped grounds, which include an overscaled Roman-style pool framed by river-rock walls and century-old oaks and a deluxe one-bedroom guesthouse with its own kitchen. Both the main house and the guesthouse have hdtv service as well as high-speed internet linked to a wifi network.

The home is well-situated, just two blocks from the recreation opportunities of the Arroyo Seco, walking distance to shopping, bars, and restaurants, and a short drive to Old Town Pasadena, and other Pasadena amenities.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
Loved, loved loved this home! A semi throw back to the 1960's but just enough to awaken some nostalgic feelings. It is both spacious and interesting both inside and out. This home met our needs to a T. There were three couples and we each had our own "mini suites" (includes guest house) which are far from each other. The location is spot on and the grounds are just nothing less than spectacular with grapefruit trees everywhere, lovely gardens and a ginormous swimming pool. We were in town for a wedding and tried to get other family members to use VRBO but they opted for a hotel. Too bad because not only were our accommodations nicer and more conducive to socializing, it was cheaper. I would gladly stay here again if the opportunity presented itself.

BREATHTAKING!

  • 5 of 5
The Magical Modern certainly lives up to its name! We loved the house when we saw it online – but it was even more spectacular in real life. The pictures are great, but they don’t prepare you for the grandeur of the spaces.

Inside, the double-height living room has an understated elegance, with really fun art on the walls. Throughout the house, massive glass doors open up to the elegant large scale neoclassical pool. The kitchen and dining rooms are nicely proportioned with lots of light and the bedrooms truly generous. Then there’s the pool house, which really feels like and old school beach house with white-washed wood panel walls and a lot of room. We didn’t know there would be another kitchen in there, but it sure came in handy!

But what makes this property so special is the huge outdoor space, with a wide lawn under stately oak trees; then an enormous pool looking straight out of Hearst Castle or something; then the row of trees filled with delicious grapefruits set against beautiful rock wall terraces going up the hill. You really feel like you stepped into a garden in Provence – or an old Hollywood movie.

Staying here was like that – it made us feel glamorous, if only for a few days.

Awesome Property!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed here for a week with my husband, adult son and his girlfriend, my brother and his wife, and their teenage daughter and we all enjoyed this home! We were here for my daughter's graduation from Caltech, and I am very familiar with Pasadena, and I cannot think of a more ideal location and home. First the house is very spacious, bright, with a big kitchen and a large private back yard with an awesome pool. The bedding is high end, as are the towels. There are no details missed by the owner of this property to make your vacation wonderful and relaxing. Also the location is great. We are a family of runners and it's a short run to the arroyo, and we ran to the rosebowl (2 miles one way) ran the 3.1 miles around the rosebowl and back. You can walk to old town as well from this location (1 mile) and Caltech is about 2.5 miles. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. Everyone in my family wants to return for another family vacation to this property. The owner is very nice and welcoming. I highly recommend this vacation rental, you will not be disappointed!

Memorial Day Weekend

The house itself was lovely and mostly quite clean (except for an issue with ants throughout the house - bathrooms and kitchen especially). The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were well appointed, and we appreciated the amount of linens supplied (specifically towels). The kitchen was very well supplied. The grounds are beautiful and very well maintained, we loved the citrus grove. It was nice to have so much space, and the pool house is absolutely perfect for teens/tweens.

Magical Modern Aptly Named

  • 5 of 5
This property is stunning! My husband, my siblings and I spent a week at the house in late February. How wonderful to escape our cold and snowy homes to bask in the California sun, sitting on lawn chairs overlooking the beautiful pool and guest house. And for those lucky enough to visit this property in early spring, you will be rewarded with fresh grapefruit off the trees lining the pool area.
The house is located in a quiet, lovely neighborhood close to the arroyo, the Rose Bowl, and downtown Pasadena. And it's only a few short blocks from several freeways, allowing for easy access to downtown L.A.
Our hosts were great to work with. They thoughtfully stocked the kitchen with staples
and provided extra welcoming touches (fresh coffee beans, sparkling water, etc.). We found the rest of the house to be well furnished and well appointed with all the necessitites for a comfortable stay.
We look forward to staying there again and would certainly recommend it for those wishing for a special "home away from home".
