It’s not every day that you come across a home with its own private labyrinth, so gather ‘round because one has just popped up for sale in Altadena.

Located about a block east of historic Farnsworth Park, the property in question contains two separate residences. The main house is a three-bedroom, two-bath Tudor Revival built in the 1920s. Its appealing features include oak floors, coved ceilings, steel casement windows, built-in archways, and a wood-burning fireplace. It’s also got a wooden deck with hot tub.

The second house is a sweet bungalow cottage built in the 1940s that features one bedroom, one bath, hardwood floors, period tile, a brick fireplace, and a separate laundry room. Per the listing, the home is currently rented, but will be delivered vacant upon close of sale.

Along with the aforementioned rock labyrinth, which was “built lovingly by the owner and neighbors,” the lush grounds of the .29-acre compound contain an abundance of mature trees, a wildflower garden, and a pond with fountain.

Asking price is $1.189 million, and open house is scheduled from 2 to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
