Bit of Arcadia’s History

egpimaging_17andrea_002_highresA few months ago, we met some lovely people who kept describing their beautiful home at 17 Andrea Lanein Arcadia that had a prime location at the base of the San Gabriel foothills with a wonderful view looking south over the valley. For the past 25 years, this mid-century home, carefully designed and built by a local contractor for himself in 1954, has been home to its current owners, providing a fantastic neighborhood in the Highland Oaks Elementary area in which to raise their children. Ready for new owners to envision and capture an even better view with perhaps a second story, The Maloney Group sees this home as one of the very special homes in Arcadia that would work beautifully for someone who is ready to live in it while updating its current features or for owners who want to maximize the potential of this unique lot. A rather interesting article in the LA Times this week discusses many Arcadia homes, such as this one, that have been re-imagined for the next generation of Arcadia architecture and its residents. One thing that will remain after this home sells is the unbelievable mountain and city lights view and the short walk to Arcadia Wilderness Park, the Angeles National Forest and the Chantry Flat trails.
