This fun and festive midcentury residence in Pasadena was built in 1964 and, while it’s obviously been updated, has a distinctly time-capsule-y feel.

Currently, it belongs to British alternative rocker Matt Hales, otherwise known as Aqualung, and his wife and musical collaborator, Kim Oliver. Property records show the pair bought the home in 2011 for $910,000.

Fronted by a lovely breeze block, the home has a pair of frosted glass doors that open to a large entryway with stone floors and a built-in planter. The family room boasts cork floors, built-in shelving, a stone fireplace, and an ornate sliding screen that divides it from the rest of the house.

The open kitchen has patterned floors and blue countertops; it flows into a breakfast area that offers access to an enormous covered patio via sliding glass door.

The four-bedroom home has three bathrooms and covers 3,174 square feet of floor space. It sits on a roughly half-acre lot with an outdoor fireplace, a grassy backyard, and multiple spaces for outdoor dining and/or lounging.

Asking price is $1.795 million.

Josette Wolf of Pacific Union International has the listing.
