Almost Heaven, Pasadena

Mar 28, 2011

This built-in buffet is a centerpiece at one of the homes on this year's tour.

Pasadena now has more historic districts than Hollywood has marijuana dispensaries, but it all started with Bungalow Heaven, Pasadena’s first Landmark District and a recent addition to the National Register of Historic Places. Bungalow junkies, whose numbers are legion, clear their calendars in April to be ready for the annual Bungalow Heaven home tour, which is coming up on April 10th. This year’s is a self-guided architectural romp through eight Arts & Crafts beauties, with docents on hand at all houses and living history actors performing at one. The day also includes two gardening workshops at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., for a mere $5 extra; landscape architect Elizabeth Neaves will address the challenges of designing a garden in an historic home.

Proceeds go, as ever, to support the neighborhood association.
