Our Home For Exchange

Description of the home we are offering for exchange

We live in the desirable & diverse Eagle Rock area of L.A. next to bustling Old Town Pasadena and near Glendale. Our gentrified neighborhood offers unique restaurants, boutiques, and coffee houses (click on Neighbourhood above for more). Our 1924 renovated house sits on the slope of a quiet, narrow, tree-covered street, & features a large living room that looks out at 2 huge pines. The backyard is a little gem with palms, vines, & private shaded decks overlooking our valley from 2 levels, an ideal place to lounge, grill, dine, & entertain--it's classic L.A. with a Mediterranean feel. The 1070-sq-ft house offers 2 comfortable bedrooms (1 Q, 1 full), a Spanish-tiled bathroom w/ deep tub & shower, a WC off of the 2nd bedroom, a dining room that seats 6, a convenient well-stocked "galley" kitchen, and a family room with a picture window looking out to the hills beyond. A separate downstairs office opens through French doors onto the private lower deck.

Neighbourhood

Description of our neighbourhood and surrounding area

We love our location & nice neighbors, & trust that you will too! Our little valley is nestled between Pasadena, South Pasadena, and Glendale, with freeway access in all directions. We are walking distance (with hills) from unique shops & restaurants, including a 1950s-era pizza house that the L.A. Times dubbed "the best pizza in L.A.," a beer specialty shop & bar, a traditional French dinner house, a fine cheese emporium, a wine shop, a "slow fast food" place featured on the Food Channel, quality sandwich shops, 3 specialty coffee houses, & more. The actual "Eagle Rock" is a striking natural outcropping at one end of town, & the pastoral campus of Occidental College is hidden away in the area. Cross the gorgeously restored Colorado Street Bridge to reach the famed Norton Simon Museum & Old Town Pasadena, just 2 miles from our home. Come at New Years & go up the hill & over the bridge to see the Rose Parade! The Rose Bowl is 5 minutes by car.

Our Preferences

Our home exchange - here are our Preferences and House Rules

We will take good care of your house and expect the same in return. We do not allow smoking inside. We need pet care & would be happy to return the favor--we have 3 nice cats & a small dog. (The dog might be boarded or with us in our 2nd home in the case of a non-simultaneous exchange.) The gardener comes on Friday mornings and uses a stored key to the back gate, and our housekeeper comes every 2 weeks on Tuesdays. If your visit corresponds with a date when we have a ticket to the L.A. Philharmonic (a must-do experience for music lovers!), we can possibly sell you that ticket. The same goes for our 2 season tickets to the Center Theatre Group's Mark Taper Forum.
