You'll find that South Pasadena, California, has cultivated a small-town identity and is proud of the atmosphere that sets it apart from its larger neighbors. Homes in South Pasadena sit between the far larger Pasadena and Los Angeles. Like Pasadena, of which this town was once a part, it is known for its historic Craftsman-style homes, but it also takes pride in unique small businesses and great public schools.
In addition to the Craftsman style so prevalent in the area, you can find revival and the Art Deco styles of 1900 to 1939 among South Pasadena's tree-lined neighborhoods. Some Victorian-era properties can also be seen around the town.
South Pasadena’s historical influences are on display. The historic city center and business district around Mission Street and Meridian Avenue are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Rialto Theater is also noteworthy, with an eye-catching blend of Spanish Baroque and Egyptian styling. The Rialto, built in 1925, was added to the National Register of Historic places in 1978. The landmark was once featured in the award-winning movie "La La Land," and has recently been repurposed into a church.
South Pasadena includes several employers, including Bristol Farms and Orchard Supply, but it's also within commuting distance of many more job opportunities. The Jet Propulsion Lab and the California Institute of Technology are nearby, and Los Angeles is just a 15-minute drive. The Gold Line also offers transportation to LA. South Pasadena also has a well-developed shopping and dining district on Mission Street, complete with small stores, unique boutiques and eateries.
South Pasadena has a well-respected public school district, and once your children are ready for higher education, there are a number of colleges within 20 miles of town.
When you buy South Pasadena real estate, you also buy into a small-town life with all the conveniences of a large metro within reach.
