Surrounded by mature trees, this single-level house in Altadena has that blast-from-the-past vibe. The refinished parquet flooring, stone-clad fireplace and mint green kitchen are firmly rooted in the 1960s. French doors open to a backyard with a vegetable garden, a swing set and lawn — just the spot for running through a sprinkler. There’s even a bonus tiki lounge space.
