Slightly hidden behind some tall landscaping, this 1910 Craftsman in South Pasadena near the local high school has nothing to be bashful about. The 2,035-square-foot house is entered via a large door at the end of a roomy, recessed porch decorated with "Japanese inspired mortise & tenon joinery" on its railing. The house has a formal dining room, an updated kitchen with pass-through, a living room with built-ins and French doors, four bedrooms, and two bathrooms. There's also plenty of room in the backyard, a pergola, drought tolerant plantings, and winding paths through the more-than-10,000-square-foot lot. The house is listed for $1.395 million.
