Finding a Home Away From the City: Moving to Pasadena
Looking for a place to call home, far from the crowded urban areas of Los Angeles? You’ll find it in Pasadena. One of the most popular suburbs for living, Pasadena has all the thrills and culture of a big city — with the community and calm of a smaller town.
a touch of luxury
Residents at Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens enjoy all the comforts and conveniences of at-home luxury. They will find premium carpeting in all bedrooms, as well as master bathrooms with pre wiring installed above the soaking tub, for an ideal flat-screen TV location. Perhaps best of all, there is a dedicated onsite concierge to take care of everything from dry cleaning to dog walking. Likewise, Pasadena itself offers opulence at every turn. Treat yourself to a Swedish massage at The Langham. Take in a show from the best seats in the house at Pasadena Playhouse. Or sip a “Gold Rush” cocktail, mixed fresh at White Horse Lounge‘s cherry wood bar.
An active lifestyle
Like to stay active? The living spaces at Terraces provide ample room for your morning exercise routine — and, of course, you can always use the Ambassador Gardens themselves for al fresco aerobics. Need someone to help you stay motivated? Our concierge will fix you up with the perfect personal trainer or Pilates teacher. That’s just the beginning of Pasadena’s health and fitness offerings. Not far from Terraces, there are many boutique studios and fitness centers to choose from- though we’d recommend Hot8Yoga, now offering outdoors and on-demand classes in Pasadena.
a love of the outdoors
Right on the doorstep of your residence, townhome, or penthouse are the historical Ambassador Gardens — set in the grounds of the Hulett C. Merritt mansion. Here, you can relax in the cool shade of a tree, or read by the ornamental pool, accompanied by the soothing sounds of bubbling fountains. There are plenty of other places in Pasadena where you can escape into nature: from the tranquility of the Storrier Stearns Japanese Garden to the staggeringly beautiful hiking trails around nearby Eaton Canyon Falls.
a taste for fine dining
Every Terraces home is fitted with a chef’s kitchen featuring Caesarstone countertops, stainless steel Wolf appliances, and built-in Sub-Zero refrigerator/freezers. Who could ask for more when cooking for yourself or for your family and friends? As for dining out in Pasadena, take your pick from a slew of deluxe restaurants, including Malbec, for superlative steaks, and Sugarfish, for supreme sushi. You name a cuisine, and, chances are, you’ll find it in Pasadena.
