Brimming with a diverse selection of homes, the area of Altadena is an exclusive community that offers an exceptional way of life. It enjoys a mild climate, incredible views of the San Gabriel Mountains, and exclusive, tree-filled neighborhoods. The Altadena real estate market has long been a destination for home buyers seeking an extra level of privacy and tranquility. Altadena was developed in the late 1880s as a suburb of Pasadena, but today it exists as an unincorporated community that marches to its own rhythm. Residents here enjoy a relaxed environment that is welcome in comparison to the fast-paced, cosmopolitan lifestyle that Los Angeles offers. This community is also diverse and friendly -- perfect for people of all backgrounds from young professionals, families, artists and entrepreneurs. Altadena's housing stock ranges from lavish mansions to modest bungalows, and a few townhomes and condominiums. The single family homes are typically sited on generous lots that offer better value than many neighboring communities. But what is most special about this area is the large number of historical homes that have been built starting in the early 1900s and throughout the 20th Century. These architectural marvels, spanning styles from American Craftsman bungalows to Mid-Century Modern glass homes, are the ideal properties for selective buyers who seek a true architectural achievement to be their next home.
