Style Notes

Historic home style. This lovely 1920s has all the glamor of a bygone era and was designed by Paul Williams, the first black architect to become a member of the American Institute of Architects. The home has grace, design and elegant proportions with original fireplaces, wooden beams and Williams’ original stained glass accent windows. The living room as you enter has old world charm and sprawling original wood ceilings with cosy bookshelves and a fireplace – kids will enjoy playing the guitar or other musical instruments. The kitchen is modern and large enough for entertaining. Bathrooms are white and minimalist. We love the large oak tree outside the nursery that gives a treehouse feel; the large, spacious grounds with the pool; and the charming period features throughout.

Family of four living in Pasadena. We have two boys -- 2 and 5 -- and love our neighborhood. We'd love to share everything about why we love living in beautiful Pasadena and hope to travel any and all places with the kids as we're just now feeling ready after the long baby years.

Pasadena, Los Angeles

Pasadena is a child's suburban utopia, with lazy streets perfect for biking, endless parks to choose from (start with Lacy Park) and the uber-playground Kidspace. Head to Indiana Colony Pasadena for gourmet ice cream at CoolHaus, California fresh fruit drinks at Pressed Juicery, sips at Legacy Tea and Spices, bites at Pie Hole and morning cofee at Intelligentsia. Snag some vintage finds at the Rose Bowl flea market or catch a football game at the same venue. And, for those lucky enough to be in town on or around the New Year, there's the block party of all block parties: the Rose Parade. In Pasadena, everything really is coming up roses...
