How do you do it, Pasadena? How do you keep your pretty, historic houses looking so damn fine? This 1958 looker was designed by McCarthy, Zemke and Hartfelder, and has three bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a dining room, a butler's pantry, a covered terrace, and a pool. Most of the common areas are on the ground floor, a suite with its own patio is down half a level, and a family room with "immaculate original kitchenette," bath and bedroom is one half-level lower. Asking price is $3.1 million.
