Pasadena is home to many historically significant homes and building, As more and more people are interested in living close to the city (local shops, restaurant and transportation), we have seen number of new and restored condominiums near Old Town Pasadena.
This week, I would like to introduce the Historic Livingstone located at 139 South Los Robles. This building was built in 1926 by Mr. Woody Woodworth, and operated as a hotel near 80 years. It was also home to the Miyako Japanese Restaurant for nearly 50 years. From this property, you can walk to Old Town Pasadena, Paseo, steak out at Ruth Chris’s, see a show at the Playhouse, and much more.
Completely renovated, the Livingstone has transformed into a 32 unit, luxury condominium and one ground floor commercial unit. This historic site is eligible to be listed in the National Registry of Historic Places. The results of the construction are a dramatic. The red brick building represents New York Style urban living that has both historic and contemporary elements.

The exterior of this building has been carefully restored. This is no cookie cutter condo. Depending on the unit, you can be viewing the beautiful San Gabriel Mountains, or gazing at the beautifully built Paseo Colorado building. For example, you can catch the business district in action looking out from unit 301. In unit 302, relax in your balcony, engage with the trees and enjoy the view of the courtyard.
The best of the best is the Penthouse. You want fabulous place, well this is a FAB! Walking up to the Penthouse, you are greeted by a striking view of the city and mountains through the glass windows and doors, from floor to the ceiling. The forever stylish balcony is planned perfectly for lounging and entertaining. Why not throw in a hot tub and watch the skyline with your favorite friends (and a cocktail)?
And talk about views. It’s views galore of the Pasadena downtown and the foothills. The living space is over 2,700 square feet and the balcony space is 900 square feet. The master suite comes with a skylight (equipped with electronically operated shade), a wonderously, spacious walk in closet, a separate shower and luxurious bathtub. It’s a must see to totally appreciate this fantastic property.
