A landscape of water-saving native plants, a stylish, eco-friendly home designed and built by architects for themselves, a startlingly quiet location in the hills of Highland Park with views from almost every window--all this and more awaits you at 5830 Buena Vista Terrace. From the solar panels over the cool roof to the radiant heating in the floors, energy-saving measures have been imbedded into the passive solar design, the sustainable interior finishes, the low-maintenance materials like cement board cladding, concrete block walls, poured concrete floor slabs, and natural anodized aluminum framed doors and windows.
The property includes the adjacent lot to the east and is fully fenced (10,927 sq. ft. total). Enjoy your morning coffee as the sun rises on your tiered vegetable garden. Or entertain friends on the spacious patio off the kitchen with built-in water feature and benches.
There are 4 bedrooms and 2 baths on the top level, the main living, dining, kitchen, laundry and family room on the middle level, and downstairs is the office, guest bedroom and bath with separate entrances. At the street is a carport/garage for 2 vehicles. This private and secluded oasis is only minutes away from the bustle of Eagle Rock`s Colorado Blvd, Highland Park`s trendy York Blvd, or Pasadena`s Old Town.
