Altadena

Wedged up against the San Gabriel Mountains, Altadena early on attracted hikers and outdoor enthusiasts as mountain tourism took off in the late 1800’s. The Mt. Lowe Railway started in the neighborhood and took passengers nearly seven miles up to a resort, dance hall and casino. Well the casino is long gone, but not the desire to call Altadena home. Architecturally there is a little bit of everything here with Craftsmans, Mid Century, English Tudors and Colonial Revivals sprinkled throughout the quiet tree lined streets. Truly a hikers paradise with access to some of the region’s best trails. Post workout hit up Amara Kitchen, Bulgarini Gelato or a cold one at Rancho Bar. Most homes priced from the high $700 to $1.8M.
