The lone bathroom features retro pink and red tile, and a separate shower and bathtub. In the rear yard, there’s a large pool, a covered patio, and a mural painted on the detached garage.

This charming cottage in the foothills was built in 1925, and it sits in a small community of similar cottages developed and designed by E.P. Janes, a businessman from New York.

The Victorian Foster/Blankenhorn home is an enduring icon of turn of the century Pasadena grandeur. It has been sensitively updated and peppered with whimsical modern surprises.
Throughout the years this stunning Queen Anne Victorian has housed a mix of distinguished people. This list includes a railroad baron, a professional golfer, founders of the Valley Hunt Club and a celebrity radio DJ. This grand dame is visually captivating from the street, and deliciously mixes gabled, hipped and conical forms with boxed eaves, clapboard siding and a wraparound porch.
Lauded as “perhaps the most outstanding example of Victorian architecture still standing” by the Pasadena Star News, this unique property made its big screen debut in 1968’s blockbuster Yours, Mine and Ours, starring Lucille Ball and Henry Fonda.
In addition, this home features eleven-foot ceilings, a dramatic stained redwood staircase and round turret rooms with curved windowpanes. The back yard offers a series of super-sized lighted sculptures that invite conversation. Especially relevant is the no-expense-spared sound proofed music studio with separate vocal booth. This space could also serve as an office, art/dance studio, gym or guest room. Furthermore, the studio has plumbing connections for a possible future bathroom. Because of its contribution to the Markham Place Historic District, and its many historic features, the property is potentially eligible for Mills Act property tax reduction.

Stately country-style home in La Cañada Flintridge built in 1923 for the family of Standish L. Mitchell, a former CEO of the Automobile Club of Southern California.
As it happens, Sumner Hunt and Silas Burns designed the 5,492 square-foot home. They also designed the club’s recognizable headquarters in University Park—as well as the Southwest Museum. (Hunt also designed the original plans for the Bradbury Building.)
If the home looks familiar, perhaps you’ve seen it in one of its many film appearances. Additionally, the residence has played prominent roles in the original In-Laws with Peter Falk and Alan Arkin, The Good German, and The House Bunny. (Interiors subbed in for the Playboy Mansion).

But the home has plenty to offer beyond pedigree and IMDB credits.
Furthermore, Containing six bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths, the expansive interior features original hardwood floors, fireplaces, crown moldings, and even a few era-appropriate bathroom fixtures.
Listing agent Brett Furrey tells Curbed the owners meticulously preserved the home’s original character, bringing in FK Design Group’s Marla Felber and Virginia Robinson Garden’s Tim Lindsay to assist with the updates. As a result the grounds are absolutely gorgeous.
Especially relevant is the extremely beautiful space around the house.
Located on 2.4 acres, the gated home is accessed by a long, winding driveway and surrounded by a forested, park-like yard. The back yard includes several patios and balconies for admiring the scenery. Additionally, an elegant swimming pool adds to Old World restrained luxury.
