What You Get | $2.2 Million Homes in California
By Angela Serratore
Altadena | $2.195 Million
A Spanish style house built in 1999, with five bedrooms and five bathrooms, on a 0.4-acre lot
This house is in La Vina Estates, a gated community at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. Most of the homes there were built in the late 1990s and early 2000s, in Spanish Revival style; many, including this one, have been updated within the last five years.
The mountains are a draw for locals and tourists alike, with hiking and biking trails of varying difficulty. The Angeles National Forest, a popular destination for overnight camping trips, is less than 20 minutes away by car. The heart of Altadena is a 10-minute drive from this property; Pasadena and Burbank are about 15 minutes away.
Size: 3,881 square feet
Price per square foot: $566

A chandelier hangs in the double-height foyer. To the left is a living room with clerestory windows, windows facing the porch and a fireplace framed in colorful tile.
