This charming garden house was built in 1897 sits behind a 1920's house on a quiet street with shady trees and full community of birds to enjoy. There are outdoor areas to relish the sunshine and the house is a true joyous throwback of years gone bye. The house sits two blocks from Caltech and a lovely walk or bike ride away from The Huntington Gardens and Library.
Our city is proud to hold The Norton Simon Museum, The California Modern Museum, and The Pacific Asia Museum all a 5 min. drive.

We spent a totally relaxing week in Cynthia’s lovely cottage. She was so welcoming, kind and accommodating. The location is fantastic, very quiet yet close to shops and the grocery store — we walked everywhere. Not only did Cynthia leave us the basics in the well-stocked kitch…

A peaceful suburban home in Pasadena with a delightful backyard. A convenient location, within walking distance to shops and cafes. Rental bicycles are a stone's throw away. The convention center is an easy 30 minute walk. Cynthia and Bruno are the most accommodating of hosts.
