Terrace Villa On Pasadena Campus Soon to Go Up For Sale

Those of you out there that have deep pockets and money to burn can get ready to buy Terrace Villa on the old Ambassador Campus.  Terrace Villa was one of the few buildings that the Church did not destroy it's architectural heritage.

For decades it served as a women's dorm.  The kitchen was removed, it's previous shape left in tact. It had a huger basement that even included a small "hidden" room that was behind a bookcase.

If you are planing on buying the house you need to be prepared to dump a lot of money into restoring it.  It needs a new roof, a complete kitchen installation and a means to keep people out of the garden area on the West side of the house.  It was recently declared to have historical significance which means loads of issues with Pasadena Heritage.  You won't be able to use the bathroom without these meddlesome people telling you what kind of toilet paper to use.

Terrace Villa declared historical landmark.

Fond memories of dropping dates off at TV! Some were drunk or smelled of cigarettes, and I needed to carefully coach them to get past their dorm monitors. I don't know how with Big Brother Elijah's surveillance and all of the institutionalized ratting, but somehow we avoided getting busted.

Ah, yes. There were always ways to get by if you were extremely careful. I remember a few mild escapades during my college career. Nothing really immoral or risque, but what people like Meredith didn't know didn't hurt them or us.
