Property Description

AMAZING PRICE IMPROVEMENT! Artistically placed steps lead you to the whimsical front door, and you will be captivated by unique and charming features at every turn! A magical storybook cottage nestled in the high desirable city of Pasadena! This breathtaking home, known as 'The Old Mill,' is the last trace of Pasadena's world-famous Busch Gardens Park, once open to the public and closed since 1937. An enchanting European style cottage has been tastefully and lovingly maintained by the same owner for almost a half a century. This quaint home offers 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 912 sq. ft. and a 200+ sq. ft. two-story cellar! Bask in warm light flowing through beautiful leaded stained windows! Relax on benches of concrete and Arroyo River rock built along winding garden paths sheltered by an ancient canopy of trees and surrounded by ivy-covered hills. Among The Mill House's most spectacular features is a faithfully replicated water wheel from which water flowed along a twisting stream bed into a millpond. This property redefines one-of-a-kind! Own a piece of history!
