This one-bedroom condo is located in the Villa San Pasqual, a landmarked midcentury complex in Pasadena, between South Lake Avenue’s shopping strip and Caltech.

The 959-square-foot upper-level unit features its original hardwood floors and a big section of floor-to-ceilings windows, including sliders that open onto a private balcony.

The kitchen has retro-looking cabinets (they’re actually newly built custom pieces) along with a teal tile backsplash and terrazzo floors, which really lean into the 1950s cool of the dwelling. The sole bathroom is spacious with marble floors, mosaic tiles, and the original pink bathtub.

Other perks of the condo include in-unit laundry, very large closets, and central air conditioning.

Last sold for $485,000 in August and updated since then, the residence at 1000 San Pasqual Avenue, Unit J is now seeking $599,000. Carmine Sabatella and Ryan Delair of Compass have the listing.
