We are two professors of art and design and visual artists. Our rental is ideal for academics, researchers, writers or individuals who prefer quiet surroundings while on sabbatical or in need of a peaceful respite. The space is "only" suited for 1-2 single occupants. Though we love both, it is not suitable for children or pets. It is a fully furnished, mid-century modern at the end of a very private cul-de-sac surrounded by trees and nature with occasional wildlife sightings. It is located in a canyon within close proximity to La Cañada, Pasadena, Glendale, Montrose, La Crescenta, Eagle Rock, Highland Park, Downtown LA, San Marino and South Pasadena. It has a large living room with open beam ceilings with western facing glass walls with a view of a beautiful landing of a tree-covered hillside, sunsets and moonlit nights. It includes a fully equipped galley kitchen, large work room with work table/desk facing patio, dining area with windows facing the garden and patio, a large one bedroom w/1 queen size bed w/spacious closets, adjacent bathroom w/shower, sliding door that opens onto a small deck in garden, 2nd bathroom w/shower/tub, 1 office (only available for 2 person occupancy), washer/dryer, and covered patio with outdoor furniture.
