Originally built as the caretaker's cottage for a larger estate, this hillside home in South Pasadena was later remodeled to serve as a church. Divine details of note include rows of arching stained glass windows and cathedral-style ceilings. Character finishes, large formal rooms and sweeping canyon views offer the blueprint for the next chapter in the home's history.
