Forget about life in the fast lane and slip into something more comfortable. Cocooned in the curve of a lushly wooded cul-de-sac at the base of the Sierra Madre foothills, sits a premier oasis for body and soul. A Zen-like calm suffuses throughout with earthen textures, simple shapes and green views that give a sense of quiet. The vision is contemporary and sophisticated with a newly painted interior that is both enveloping and open to nature. The landscaping has been given a facelift to allow the naturalistic beauty of the gardens to be enjoyed from inside or out. The kitchen and baths have been updated with a modernist vibe. Bamboo floors grace the living room and main bedroom while the other two bedrooms sport new carpet. The two car garage is attached. Walking distance to “Mary’s Market” in the lower canyon for coffee and breakfast or a delicious sandwich. Sierra Madre offers a sense of place, peace and belonging in the bewildering patchwork that is Greater L.A.
