Oh, What a Way to Live!


 
Well, here's some interesting news!  A few weeks back, my friend Petrea, from Pasadena Daily Photo, sent me a brochure that she had seen, advertising apartment rentals at the The Pinney House, built in 1887, and designed by the Newsom Brothers Architects.  I took a look at the brochure and, well - Oh Em Gee - this is some amazing setup. 

The owners are offering various "flats" throughout the home, with names that refer to famous people and places in the 10,000 s.f. Victorian beauty's history (The Bob Hope Suite; The Rose Bowl Suite, etc.).  In addition, they have community spaces, including a sunroom, a library, a formal dining room, and even a guest room, just in case you have visitors from out of town.  Elegant Living? Yes, please!

Take a look at the brochure.  Maybe you'll be glad you did.  Or maybe, like me, you'll just feel jealous of those who end up living there.

  3. I still haven't been able to choose my room. Perhaps a suite of rooms would be best.

  5. I'll take the Rose Bowl suite, thank you. What a great place (and more affordable than most anything in the Princeton region!) I love that each suite gets to have it's own personality and character, I'm sure that would translate to the residents!

    1. An excellent choice, Madame! I'll bet you're right that the personalities would translate over!
