You don’t have to be into Mad Men cosplay to enjoy this 1961-built Pasadena townhouse—its midcentury charm is universally appealing.

Enter the two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit at 395 Cliff Drive and find a tall entryway with a floating staircase and a built-in bar.

In the living room, one wall of two-story, floor-to-ceiling windows brings in loads of sunlight. (But the addition of custom draperies means it doesn’t always have to be bright and sunny.) The galley-style kitchen is contemporary, with light cabinets, dark stone counters, and plenty of counter space.

Both bedrooms are upstairs, each with their own roomy closets. The upstairs bedroom has been recently updated and features modern finishes and a large walk-in shower.

The 1,500-square-foot residence is one of just 10 units in the courtyard-style complex, which also features a pool. The Hastings Ranch Whole Foods and Vroman’s book store are a short walk away, as are an entire shopping center’s worth of restaurants, stores, and other amenities.

The unit is listed for $675,000, plus HOA fees of $340 per month, with Deborah Maxson of Sotheby’s International Realty.

That wall of windows sure keeps things bright in here.
