It sounds like you may have an unpermitted bedroom or Trulia could be pulling its info from out of date recorde. A Realtor will be able to show you how your property appears in county records.
We would be happy to assist.
The Country Club was founded in 1904 and the street was named to reflect the club. I spoke to a local builder who has history in the area and he is not aware of a 1000 acre Almond Ranch in the area. Additionally the City of San Gabriel has a section on their website www.sangabrielcity.com which indicates which streets have had a name change and neither Country Club nor Roses are on the list. Perhaps it is another area. Best wishes on your history hunt.... more
If you have amended HOA documents they should be recorded. If there is an argument and everyone is signed I'm guessing that it could be enforceable amongst the parties that signed, but you need an attorney's opinion.... more
You can contact the listing agent who will be able to help you learn more about that specific property (and probably will know a lot about similar properties in the area). To find an agent, just click on the yellow button on the property's Trulia listing and you will be able to start a dialogue.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if I can help with anything else. I am happy to be a resource for you. Good luck with the search!

Go to the City and find out what types of structures they do allow given the lot size. In San Gabriel, guest homes are allowable on large lots but not on smaller lots. Therefore if the guesthouse is on a smaller lot, you will not be able to get a permit for it. You may buy it unpermitted but if a neighbor complains, it may be subject to being torn down.
