What You Get: $1.5 Million Homes in California

By Angela Serratore

Altadena | $1.449 Million

A 1947 ranch house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms, on a 0.3-acre lot

This house is a little more than a mile from several trailheads along the Altadena Crest Trail, where hikers, bikers and horseback riders can take in the sweeping views of downtown Los Angeles and the Pacific Ocean. Also nearby is Charles S. Farnsworth Park, a public park with sports fields, playgrounds and a community center. A coffee shop and an Aldi grocery store are less than a mile away, on Lake Avenue.
Downtown Pasadena is about 10 minutes away. San Bernardino and Riverside are an hour’s drive. Downtown Los Angeles is half an hour away, depending on traffic, as is Hollywood Burbank Airport.

Size: 1,730 square feet
Price per square foot: $838
Indoors: From the driveway, a brick path cuts through a yard landscaped with native plants and trees, leading to the home’s entrance, framed by a small covered porch.
The front door opens directly into a living room with a fireplace and hardwood floors. Beyond is a small windowed dining area that flows into a galley kitchen with ample white cabinetry. Behind the kitchen is a family room with access to the side yard.
The primary bedroom is at the back of the house, with built-in storage along one wall and windows overlooking the side yard. The updated primary bathroom has a glass-walled shower and a new vanity with a basin-style sink.
Two guest rooms are at the front of the house, overlooking the front yard. They share a full bathroom with porcelain pedestal sink and a combined tub and shower.
Outdoor space: The spacious backyard is landscaped with stone walkways and mature trees, and includes an outdoor fireplace and other spots for entertaining, with views of the San Gabriel Mountains in the distance. The attached garage holds two cars.
Taxes: $18,108 (estimated)
