About This Property
The Country in the City, LA’s best kept-secret neighborhood. Privacy, safety and the beauty of nature… As you drive down Arnwood Rd to the property for which the street was named. Arnwood Ranch is a beautifully situated horse property at the end of a lovely, leafy cul d’sac. Your flat half acre of land is gated and securely fenced all around for even the most rambunctious kids or four legged pets. Much of the half acre is landscaped with lavender, a rose garden, orange and blood orange, olive, apricot, fig, grapefruit and lemon trees. There are old oaks and a 200-year-old sequoia protecting the house.
The cottage style house, set far back from the street, is full of light with large, airy rooms and lots of large windows. There is a huge country kitchen with an attached mudroom and pantry and French doors that open onto a raised deck that looks out on a garden, front and side yards, and the horse corral. There is an impressively large high-ceilinged master bedroom with a large walk-in closet. The oak floored living room with fireplace is attached to a tiled sunroom-den large enough to be divided into two offices or serve as a forth bedroom. The house is now an expansive three bed, 2 ½ bath home. The third bedroom has been set up in the past as a separate wing/rental unit with its own entrance and small kitchen. The detached, three-car-sized, windowed garage could also easily be converted to a private ADU and still have room for your extra storage in the large side-yard shed.
Although the house needs cosmetics, it is live-in ready with new central air heat and air-conditioning, and new energy saving dishwasher and washing machine. Breath the surprisingly clean air in this foothill pocket off the 210 freeway, part of the nature and animal-loving Foothill Trails neighborhood council, with bike lanes, horse trails and a lovely fishing lake at Hanson Dam. Watch the sunrise over the mountains from your kitchen and front deck and relax at sunset seen from your windowed living room, back patios and very private back yard
