What sellers love about this neighborhood:
This neighborhood is a perfect mix of everything we love about Pasadena – great early 20th century architecture, character filled homes, and diverse and friendly neighbors. We have watched the immediate area become more and more desirable as families have invested in homes and attractive businesses have opened in the area. It is quiet in the evenings, but convenient to get to South Lake District, Old Town Pasadena, or quickly on the freeway to various Eastside Los Angeles hotspots (DTLA, Silver Lake, etc.) We love the mix of what you get in this location.
What sellers love about this house:
This house is the perfect size for a simple but flexible lifestyle! The flow of the living room and dining room, combined with the beautiful French doors to open up the back patio make it very easy to accommodate a rather large group of guests, or to have a quiet more intimate evening at home. We love the floors, windows, and built-ins and how much character they provide – friends and families have always told us that we have one of the cutest houses in Los Angeles. The house allows for windows to be opened in the kitchen and the front porch side doors and a wonderful cross breeze comes through, keeping the house cool and fresh despite the temperature outside. The backyard provides great privacy for dinners al fresco.
