While this new listing on the whimsically named Tulip Tree Lane in La Cañada Flintridge hasn't totally been preserved in amber since being built in 1953—cough cough vinyl windows cough—it's still got more than enough vintage details intact to qualify as a time capsule, and a rather charming one at that. Past that pretty green and gold front door, you'll find the three-bedroom house's original lined planter box, a wood-paneled living room with brick fireplace, a dining room with sliding glass walls, and at least one bath with original linen laminate countertops. Other features include "updated copper plumbing, CA/FA, large laundry, guest bath with separate vanity, batting cage, breezeway, gated circular drive, and a 2 car garage." Sited on a .42-acre lot with some lovely mature trees, it's asking $1.289 million.
