Hello! Welcome to my home in Highland Park - my little oasis in urban Los Angeles. I work in the design (lighting) industry. My simple pleasures- art, music, food, nature and the garden are in my home and in my travels.
Among my favorite things in life are hosting and making my friends and family comfortable and relaxed. My three terriers (lucky for them!) reap the rewards of this daily. My gardening and garden design skills have taken a turn toward the edible - this year I'm focusing on planting many fruit and olive trees on the property. When you visit, I hope I can offer you an orange, lemon, peach, mango, banana or fig. As with any garden, mine is constantly in flux, a blank canvas at times, and a landscape filled with sunflowers at others. (or mud and wild flowers!)
From here - you can walk to Old Town Pasadena and the Rose Bowl (2-3 miles). There are also plenty of excellent cafes, restaurants and shops all over Eagle Rock and Highland Park. You can catch the Metro Gold Line from Highland Park into Chinatown or downtown LA. Or you can just relax with a book or ipad on the covered deck.
Be prepared to wake to the sound of our neighborhood rooster or wild green parrots. It's urban, yet magically natural around here.
Please note- there are 50 steps from the street to the front door. It's great exercise, provided you can make the steps.
