Property description

The Little House on Howard Street is a historic 1923 house that has been completely rebuilt to take full advantage of its unique size. This cozy nest of 280 square feet was built as a stand-alone house and is now the perfect place to spend the week in Pasadena for a single traveler or couple.

Inspired by the “compact” house movement that has taken shape over recent years, the Little House on Howard Street offers an excellent example of efficiency and elegance. Stylishly furnished with modern and traditional craftsman furniture and art, it is the perfect alternative to a hotel. The neighborhood is quiet and pleasant for walking, and it is a five-minute drive to all that Pasadena has to offer – world-class museums, outstanding colleges and universities, top-rated restaurants and shopping, historic Old Town, hiking and other outdoor activities, and the Rose Bowl.

The house has a newly rebuilt kitchen with a two burner gas stove, small refrigerator, combination microwave/convection oven for roasting and baking, coffee maker, and toaster. We also offer WiFi, cable television, iPod stereo dock, washer and dryer, air conditioning/heater, peaceful covered deck, and the privacy of staying in your own house.

Enjoy the exciting new restaurant scene in Pasadena and Altadena near the Howard House. AltaEats, Pizza of Venice, Lavender & Honey, Lincoln, The Eatery by Claude & Co., and El Patron are just a few of our favorites in the neighborhood. Not to mention all the great places in Old Town Pasadena and Downtown Los Angeles!

The Little House on Howard Street is less than 15 miles from Downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood, and Burbank, which can all be accessed by easy connections with the Metro Gold Line or by freeway, one of which is the newly restored historic Arroyo Parkway, the nation’s first freeway.
