This is a large, gated, single-family home in Altadena, California, which sits on 2/3 of an acre. The grounds are very pretty, with a koi pond, pool, jacuzzi, four separate outdoor sitting areas, outdoor lighting, and two private inner courtyards. There are six bedrooms, four and a half baths, three fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen, multiple TVs and stereo systems, wireless internet, beautiful artwork and lots of other amenities.
Altadena is less than 20 minutes north of downtown Los Angeles (much longer during rush hour!), and borders Pasadena, home of the Rose Parade. Altadena is a beautiful area which blends into the Angeles National Forest at its northernmost point. Within 15 minutes of the house there are lots of hiking trails, incredible restaurants, world class museums, wonderful shopping opportunities, cultural events, live musical performances, public golf courses, public tennis courts, farmers markets, etc. Really, everything you could want!
The housesitter will take care of two sweet-tempered German Shepherds, a few fish in an aquariaum, and koi and a turtle in an outdoor koi pond. The fish and turtle only require feeding twice a day, but the dogs need love and attention! You will need to water the house plants and keep the house clean after yourself.
You must be either be a non-smoker or smoke only outside, have references, and bring no pets of your own. We are looking forward to your detailed response describing why this house sitting assignment is for you. Then we would like to meet before finalizing the arrangement.
If you like dogs, then this is the perfect spot for you with lots of amenities in a fantastic area! Please respond if you are interested.
