Los Robles is also presently "not for sale".&nbsp; The property was sold 2/9/10.&nbsp; (Shows as "recently sold", as Zillow allows searching "recently sold" up to 3 years).&nbsp; This was a Keller Williams listing, and had two co-listing agents, one in Pasadena, and one in Beverly Hills.&nbsp; Perhaps the Beverly Hills agent wrote the description?
