Yes... it's heaven in Pasadena!This April, get ready for the 18th Annual Architectural Tour of Bungalow Heaven in Pasadena, California.  This beautiful neighborhood consists of over 800 craftsman and bungalow style homes and is rich in history.  It's hard to believe that some of these absolutely gorgeous homes were selling for as little as $2,500 during the bungalow boom.  The architecture, attention to detail, the use of wood and built-ins throughout make these homes so very special.  If you are new to our community or have lived here your whole life, I know that you will enjoy a self guided home tour or a guided neighborhood tour this April.  The information is listed below or can be found on my website.ENJOY! Self-Guided Home Tour:Advance Home Tour Ticket Day of Home Tour Ticket $15....
