Adorable in Altadena

Today I drove over to Altadena's Janes Village neighborhood to take a look at sone of the cottages designed and built by Elisha P. Janes between 1924 and 1926. The neighborhood has an informative website with lots of pictures. More than 160 houses in Altadena have been identified as Janes designs, although he probably built far more than have been positively attributed to him.

Historic views of Janes cottages in Altadena, shortly after completion.

Several of the cottages are currently for sale in the $400,000-500,000 range, including these two:

3058 Olive Ave.

3224 Grandeur Ave.

As an example of just how chic this neighborhood could be (although it's far from shabby now), here's a parting shot of one homeowner's accomplished landscaping.


  1. I wish the links to the sites listed above still worked. I love homes from the 1920's... I also wanted to say that your blog is very interesting. :)

  2. Just in case anyone is reading this old post, the Janes Village website is still active. However, it has changed from a .org to a .net. (though mysteriously the header still says .org.)
