The home is bright and the outdoor patio and yard is reminiscent of an English garden: there is a great nook for a table and great lounging.
And this Pasadena home has storage space above the garage, too. The one thing you might want to change is the colorful painting in some of the rooms: yellow and blue in the kitchen, a peach-and-blue bathroom and another one that's black and yellow.
Pasadena has a great main street with many shops and and restaurants, Old Town is a real charmer. It's also an area that has a lot of history and great museums like the Norton Simon and the Huntington Library, which should be on anyone's itinerary when visiting Los Angeles.
