This unique opportunity is perfect for those seeking open layout loft-style living in a serene location near Pasadena and close to legendary Mary’s Market, the best local hiking, and the immensely charming and mountainside downtown Sierra Madre.

This amazing property serviced the area as a fire station until it was decommissioned by the city of Sierra Madre and later purchased by a private owner who completed the restoration into its current state in 2007. It’s a perfect example of how a mixed use property can be re-envisioned and given new life for years to come.

With its striking facade from the street with the original fire red lettering and front opaque door and windows, the interior presents a clean and open space with a flexible floor plan.

Sleek and stylish, this rare home is brimming with original details and modern updates.

Much of the original fire station design remains with gorgeous concrete floors, original posts, and striking 11-foot ceilings

With brilliant natural light, the home offers an inspiring and expansive, not to mention flexible, 1,399 square feet of living space.

Ideal for creatives, a sleeping area offers a great spot to unwind after a long day of writing or painting.

A nicely enclosed kitchen has a great skylight, stacked laundry, and a dining and bar area.

Add an island for a bit more counter space and this kitchen will become a culinary delight for home chefs.

You may have always dreamed of living in a fire station as a youngster. Now’s the perfect opportunity to fulfill that dream for the child in you. 744 Alta Vista Drive presents a fascinating opportunity to live in a wonderful and rare live/work space in the heart of Sierra Madre, just a stone’s throw from inspiring nature and wildlife of the mountains with the Mt. Wilson trailhead just outside your door. And all for under a million.
