Pasadena is not your average place, and that’s just what people who live here love about it. It’s also why luxury homebuyers are consistently looking for new opportunities to enjoy the Pasadena lifestyle when buying new luxury condos in Pasadena. And, why interest is so high in Villas at The Ambassador Gardens in advance of its Grand Opening next year. This new enclave of 18 upscale, tri-level townhomes is the first of two new neighborhoods coming to Old Town Pasadena from boutique builder ETCO Homes; the high-end flats of Terraces at The Ambassador Gardens are expected to be introduced later in 2017.
Exceptional architectural detail and luxurious appointments hearken back to the early days of Pasadena’s Millionaire’s Row at Villas, building on the history of Ambassador Gardens with a modern offering of Mediterranean-influenced, custom, contemporary designs. Buyers looking to live in the heart of Pasadena or move from their large San Marino estate or La Canada home have been quick to register their names on Villas’ VIP Interest List.

“Villas at the Ambassador Gardens epitomizes the Pasadena lifestyle,” said Patrice Quishenberry, Vice President of Sales for ETCO Homes. “The combination of spacious, open floorplans that afford a lock-and-leave lifestyle, beautifully detailed architecture, top-of-the-line features, the historical allure of the Ambassador Gardens and Millionaire’s Row, and what is widely considered to be the area’s premier location, walkable to shops, restaurants, and museums, make Villas the most exciting new community in the area.”
Villas’ new luxury condos in Pasadena present three expansive, open-concept designs that live like sumptuous single-family residences. Three to four bedrooms and three and one-half to four and one-half baths are offered, with great rooms, formal dining rooms, private elevators, and four-car garages in 2,904 to 3,717 square feet. Each of these homes provides owners with an equally inspired outdoor space in the form of large, private terraces, some featuring treetop or skyline views.
Gourmet island kitchens at these new luxury condos in Pasadena showcase the fine craftsmanship and top-of-the-line materials used throughout the homes. Features include custom, European style cabinetry, Caesarstone cabinets, professional Wolf and Asco appliances, and built-in Subzero refrigerators.
The signature address
Set amidst the historic Pasadena Ambassador Gardens, a century-plus of grandeur and alluring natural beauty, Villas offers a prestigious, signature address with new homes in Old Town Pasadena. Here, the very best of L.A. living is right at your fingertips. But, as those who call Pasadena home would tell you, you might choose not to leave.
“We rarely venture outside Pasadena and nearby cities unless we have to,” said the Colorado Boulevard website, a portal for information and news about Pasadena. The site listed the walkability (“We measure distance by time not by mile,” they said. “It’s a seven-minute walk to Laemmle” or “a four-minute drive to Altadena.”) and the great array of “shops, bars, restaurants, theatre/movie theaters, hiking/nature, galleries and art events” among its 26 cool things about the city. Indeed, being walking distance to Old Town Pasadena’s restaurants and shops as well as the Norton Simon Museum and City Hall is a rare gift.
The welcoming environment
It would be hard to stroll by or through Ambassador Gardens, gaze at the exquisite, iconic landscape with its wide lawn, lush gardens, meandering walkways, and soothing fountains and stream, and not be inspired. But as welcoming as an afternoon among such gorgeous nature is, it just may be the people that best set the tone for Pasadena. As Thrillist says of the city, it’s “for when you want to live in a nice area without the pretentiousness.”
