DESCRIPTION: This property is a rare find. Built in 1926 as an artist's studio for an early California local plein air artist, the home exemplifies the classic California experience. This home has many significant architectural features with its grand central window, 15 foot ceiling, tall bookcases and large timbers. The home's central feature is it's large englenook with brick fireplace and wood benches to enjoy a roaring fire on a cold evening.
The large master bedroom is outfitted with a queen-size bed and lush linens. There are classic wood pane windows lining a full wall of the bedroom and another fireplace here. Above the fireplace is a large flatscreen TV to enjoy while you wind down from a fun day exploring Southern California. The master bath has been remodeled and features a large soaking tub, dual shower heads and heated floor.
The second bedroom, located on the opposite side of the home is light-filled and comfortable. Boasting another queen-sized bed with lush linens and a remodeled bathroom just adjacent to the bedroom, every guest will feel they have their own special space to unwind.
The home offers a fully updated chef's kitchen with Viking appliances to include a four burner gas stovetop with dual mode convection plus standard oven and convection microwave.
The attention to detail will make the cook in your family happy, and the extensive counter space helps ensure you have plenty of room to prep and prepare delicious meals from the comfort of your holiday home.
The home has many windows and two sets of French doors leading out onto the rear deck and garden where one can enjoy an outdoor meal or sit around the fire pit and chat in the evening.
We look forward to sharing this wonderful home with you.

Englenook is a gem!
Quiet with a beautiful fenced in yard and large deck.
Everything you could want in a vacation rental.
Enjoyed our neighbors and the neighborhood felt safe for walking.
Management was efficient and responsive. Enjoyed working with them.- Donna R. , Posted: 04/05/2022
Let's just say that we could have moved in to the Inglenook easily...this former artist's studio is a beautiful, comfortable, well-located house for anyone visiting the LA area and looking for more than a hotel room. We came to visit our new grandchild and his parents for a week, and found this house perfect for our every need--large enough for all of us to spend quality time together (including a couple of nights), a deck and an enclosed yard (simply-but-elegantly-landscaped) for outdoor time, and a 1920's structure that retains all the attraction of its original design yet has been updated w/every modern convenience and is beautifully appointed. Management was most responsive on every level.Highly recommend!- Anonymous from Gainesville, Posted: 11/14/2019
We had a lovely visit. The house was comfortable, spacious, and quiet. The beds were comfortable and the showers hot. The kitchen was well-stocked. We enjoyed the outdoor space; it was amazing! We had Thanksgiving dinner on the patio. The Japanese persimmon tree seems to be in distress. We made fires in the firepit twice. The artwork and pottery were nice touches. It was great having on-site parking!
All-in-all we had a very nice stay.

I spent three weeks here so really got to know the place. The living area has a wonderful feel with its spaciousness and simplicity but it is the outdoors that adds the winning touch. The beautiful landscaping on a small lot creates a natural oasis. You can imagine the artist owner practicing her craft here. Definitely not a place to party. I recommend it for a couple or two friends who want to enjoy nature, reading, writing, yoga, cooking together or just a very quiet place to rest for a while. It was such a fabulous getaway. I am reluctant to give this review because I would like to keep this place a secret!- Priscilla P. from Boulder, Posted: 10/29/2020
The house is absolutely beautiful, and the appliances top-notch. We also LOVED the big, quiet yard and deck. Downsides: the furniture is weirdly uncomfortable (couches too deep and short, queen bed pretty saggy, dining chairs rock-hard); the kitchen organization completely defies logic (if I'd had more time, honestly, I'd have taken on putting in some kind of logical arrangement!); and you can have either a 2nd bedroom or work space but not both. But overall, we really enjoyed out stay.- Susan S. from Gardnerville, Posted: 10/14/2020
Conveniently located in the Pasadena area, this home was spotless, gourmet kitchen, full laundry, and all the basics--we shopped for groceries, but didn't have to buy salt and pepper, toilet paper, laundry soap, etc. as we have had to do with other vacation rentals. There was a lovely, private backyard, where we hung out at cocktail hour.- Katherine M. from Grand Rapids, Posted: 02/28/2020
beautiful, tucked away property in quiet neighborhood near a school. Very comfortable bed, well-supplied kitchen. Very minor issue: on the television, I was unable to access over-the-air local channels. Instructions for the TV could maybe be revised to be a bit more detailed.- Anonymous from Carmichael, Posted: 02/27/2020
This is a lovely property. Design is appealing, deck and backyard space is wonderful. A quiet neighborhood and we felt very safe. Since we are on the "older" side of things, it could be helpful to have a comfy chair more available in the living space. Still we enjoyed our time here and will likely consider it again in the future.- Anonymous from Dallas, Posted: 11/23/2020
From the moment you step into this sanctuary you will feel truly on vacation. The house is so comfortable and artfully decorated (lovely lighting, artwork, attention to detail) you won't want to leave. The charming garden is private with several sitting areas--table for lunch? firepit for that glass of wine in the evening? alongside the fountain for breakfast coffee? We begged an extra day because we didn't want to leave this little oasis. Hard to believe you are only 30 minutes from LA and 10 from downtown Pasadena. Hiking trails nearby will take you up to the city views if you prefer to enjoy from afar. Can't recommend this enough...everything was fabulous.- Jill R. from Pasadena, Posted: 01/29/2020
This was our second stay in this lovely Craftsman home. This time we were able to enjoy the fully updated kitchen.- Neil G. from West Bloomfield Township, Posted: 03/13/2020
Great space! It's a fantastic house tucked away in the center of a block, lots of privacy. The house itself is great -- tons of craftsman touches, art, books and great decor. Communications were fantastic throughout, very responsive to questions.- Brian E from San Francisco, CA, Posted: 02/26/2022
Beautiful house. Great yard. Would definitely stay there again if in Altadena area. Management very helpful. Love all the old paintings and books. It’s the kind of house that makes you happy to just curl up, stay inside and not go anywhere. Great vegan food options in the Altadena/Pasadena area.- Stacy L. from San Rafael, Posted: 09/28/2021
The Englenook is a charming home with lots of architectural character. The home is clean, well maintained and stocked with essentials. The yard is nice with a number of spaces to read and relax. Our family had a wonderful stay in Altadena and we were able to easily enjoy points around Los Angeles throughout the weekend. I would highly recommend this property.- Anonymous from Austin, Posted: 02/06/2020
We were in town with my sister and brother in law to visit friends and had a fantastic time staying in this wonderful home. Upon arriving we walked in the front door and were delighted with the tall ceilings and views to the gardens in the backyard. The home is so comfortable and interesting with neat personal touches throughout the home. We spent an evening out by the fire pit and ate in on several evenings - all the cookware we needed to make our dinners was available. Wonderful experience, we will definitely come again!- Anonymous from Turner, Posted: 08/31/2019
Tranquil setting - rustic, but with every possible convenience and modern update. Beautiful garden. Great check-in and accommodation of needs.- Susan B. from Dallas, Posted: 11/02/2020
We have found our home away from home! The perfect hideaway from city life, gorgeous architecture w all the best
amenities, great location and easy access to everything ! Private yard for your pup and great patio outside the French doors. Rooms on opposite sides of house for privacy or snore control! We loved it. Katy the neighbor an added foot if you are lucky enough to meet her.- Jacqueline F. from Carmichael, Posted: 09/09/2019
This carriage house is exceptional. It is appointed with beautiful art from family members, comfortable furnishings and a lovely yard. It was a wonderful place to visit with family.- Anonymous from Hudson, Posted: 02/21/2022
