    Default A home with six outdoor rooms





    ( Nancy Pastor / For The Times ) By Barbara Thornburg

    Walter Hubert, the florist and event planner behind Silver Birches in Pasadena, purchased a large lot studded with fragrant eucalyptus in the foothills of Altadena, near Angeles National Forest. Inspired by the property's natural beauty, he built an Old California-style home without disturbing about 20 trees, all nearly 70 years old. "We built the house around the trees and worked it into the slope," he says. "It's why there are so many elevation changes in the house."

    The result of the home's unusual terracing: Six outdoor living spaces, allowing the kind of indoor-outdoor living that has come to define Southern California.

    I have enough trouble keeping up with my one back yard, much less six of them. Nice if you can get the help.

    Could be a piece of paradise. I'd like to see more of the interior, and a floorplan.

    You'd need the SoCal climate to live outside most of the time. And a busload of Mexican gardeners.

    Just because you're offended doesn't mean you're right.

    I wonder if this home is still standing. The Station fire ripped thru that area pretty badly last week....and with eucalyptus trees wow an inferno waiting to happen.
