With three bedrooms and 1,742 square feet of living space, this Pasadena condo has the look and feel of a single-family residence—and quite an attractive one at that.

The unit is accessed through an extravagant wooden front door and contains tile and hardwood floors, built-in shelving, arched entryways, wrought-iron fixtures, and an elegant tile-bordered fireplace in the living room.

It’s part of a Spanish-style courtyard complex built in 1927 and located south of the city’s Playhouse District. The shared open space surrounds a central fountain and features neat landscaping and lush vegetation.

The two-level condo has a winding wooden staircase and three bathrooms to match its trio of bedrooms. A formal dining room leads into the Spanish tile-floored kitchen. Located at 627 East California Boulevard, it’s asking $849,000.
