This 1951 post and beam is tucked into the hills of east Pasadena, near Eagle Rock. Described as an “unspoiled jewel” in the listing copy, it features a redwood ceiling, large windows, walls of glass, and clerestory windows throughout.
The “majority” of the cabinets in the kitchen are original, says listing agent Margi Simpkins, though the countertops are not. The kitchen has a skylight to keep things bright, though there’d likely be plenty of light without it.
The two-bedroom house has one bathroom, which has been updated. The bedrooms look out onto the backyard, which holds rock paths, mature trees, and a spectacular view of the surrounding hills.
The 1,024-square-foot residence manages to look a lot bigger than it actually is. Last sold in 1993 for $235,000, the property is now asking $689,000.
