This Monterey Colonial, designed by Roland E. Coate, is rooted in Pasadena tradition.
The stately two-story sits on what was once part of Busch Gardens, a park built more than a century ago by brewing magnate Adolphus Busch. Fittingly, a feature of the 1950s home is a balcony embellished in lacy woodwork that provides a vantage point for taking in the leafy grounds.
