Altadena Get Away






Country retreat in pastoral setting. Mountain view; landscaped in California natives and old growth fruit trees. Airy, with open floor plan, fenced yard, and full length basement. Needs paint.

Tiny/wee houses are ALL the rage these days.

I'm thinking the house itself is in my price range...good that it could be put on wheels to find a more affordable plot of land! ;-)

wait, what Banjo said...is there air? if not, nevermind...the only land I can afford is out past Palmdale...

Picky, picky, picky. It has solar heating and a moon roof.

It looks better then the motel I'm staying at. Greetings from Flagstaff

Tash said...

But is it available for late booking? I hate having to plan ahead.
VW: pirper to enjoy

altadenahiker said...

Get it while it's hot, Tash. So that would be prior to sundown.

Did I mention skylights? Eat your heart out, Flagstaff.

Adorable! Looks just big enough for a cot inside and a deck chair outside. Lovely setting too. I'll pack a few books and be right down!

Are you becoming a real estate agent, KB?

Paula said...

I'll do a shrimp boil and we can put our boots on the rail and knock back some cold ones.

AWESOME!

I'd stay there a couple nights. Starry nights and solitude.

Time to dig out my sleeping bag.

Who needs a floor when you've got charm?

Petrea Burchard said...

I love Altadena. I hope it never changes.

Terri said...

So glad to see California isn't much different than Arkansas :)

Linda said...

All it needs is wheels and a hitch.....instant RV and you could be home on the road.

Deborah Carr said...

No wonder you liked my old farmhouse...but while it might be roomier, mine does not have a moon roof.

Lovely cabin with green grove in the background.

Bellis said...

I think the Unabomber lived there once.

altadenahiker said...

Bellis has a dark side.

Trish said...

lol

been a tough day for me...thanks for the giggles.

wait, moonroof---Hiker---does this mean that all the insurance company will pay for is to let you slap some wheels on this boogie and drive it away?

Susan Campisi said...

Hiker, who told you to sell my house?

Italo said...

Finally. My american villa.

Jean Spitzer said...

Lots of potential.

Carolynn said...

I do like the darling white picket fence. It's perfect for those of us looking to downsize.

Trish said...

Carolynn...downsize my a$$...for some of us (Italo and I, perhaps) this is upsizing!

and I so LOVE spellcheck/smartcheck...in my last comment I did not, in fact say "boogie", I typed "garden"...which apparently, lost in translation from North to South, means "boogie". wth?

wv: immen...small house, small garden, must mean a small version of "eminent domain"...the *other* E.D.!?

Margaret said...

Rustic and charming, and no room for children! When can I move in.

It's tempting, I'm teetering. Tell me about the cabinetry.

Pat Tillett said...

Love the fenced in deck area!

And the asking price? May be in my price range, too!
