Squint a little and see if you can pick out the 1928 stone cottage buried somewhere in this house on Pasadena's Oak Knoll Terrace. According to the listing, "Many updated features have been added to the original dwelling to maintain its charm and character. A most Modern Addition has now been incorporated into the residence." (Be sure to bring enough fresh water and backup ornamentation when striking out into the Modern Addition.) Altogether, the house has four bedrooms, five bathrooms, private gardens off each bedroom suite, a pool and spa, and a dining room. The house has been on and off the market since April 2010; it's asking $4.5 million.
