2120 Colorado Blvd., Suite #1, Eagle Rock, CA 90041
Sold! Approaching this historic building, seeing the koi pond on the lawn and the wrap-around porch lined with comfortable chairs, makes you want to explore inside the locked gates. After the doorman buzzes you in, it's a treat to walk past the stunning Moorish, Victorian, and Craftsman public rooms to the wrought-iron elevator or the wide marble steps. It takes us back to the days of the Great Hiking Era when people came to vacation at this magnificent hotel and hike up from Mt. Lowe's Scenic Railway in Altadena. The unit has the original cement floors, period-seeming and original fixtures, a tastefully modernized kitchen with a dishwasher and a refrigerator behind matching cupboard doors. There is a full bedroom, a convertible bedroom/den with closets, a dining room off the kitchen, a living room with decorative fireplace, and a balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee at the bistro table. The bathroom looks original, but offers a low-flow toilet and a shower over the tub. The HOA includes all utilities except Internet and cable, free use of the laundry room in the basement, a storage closet, and, of course, the public rooms and the rooftop view. There is a section of parking at the Schoolhouse lot reserved for Castle Green for a small monthly fee.
