960-square-foot Sierra Madre cottage has chalet charm for $689K

By Bianca Barragan

Way up in the foothills of the San Gabriel Mountains, this Sierra Madre cottage is close to hiking trails and far from the action and crowds of city life.

The 960-square-foot house in Little Santa Anita Canyon was built in 1949. It features “Swiss chalet”-style details, like the high pitched ceilings, the exposed ceiling beams, and the wavy decorative wooden details. The rock fireplace is another reminder that the mountains are nearby.

Its two bedrooms are ample and sunlit, and out of every window, there’s a view of mature trees or glimpses of the mountains or both.

Behind the house, a rambling, terraced backyard with a seating area stretches across the nearly 7,000 square foot lot. The trailhead for Mt. Wilson is about a mile away.

The house last sold in 2016 for $628,000. 674 Alta Vista Drive is for sale now for $689,000 with Vanessa Withers of Deasy Penner Podley.
