Washington Square looks like a quintenssential American movie neighborhood.  The wide porch reminds me of some of the early Judy Garland / Doris Day movies homes!  Glad to hear there is at least one home for you to sell.  A

This must be the place people love to call home...with only three sales in 2014. We have a few neighborhoods like that in my area, too. You've done a nice job with your neighborhood description.

Washington Square looks like a great neighborhood to call home. With the low number of home available each year anyone interested in purchasing one of these highly desirable homes should call Michael Jacobs and take advantage of  his neighborhood expertise.

Love the looks of the Washington Square Landmark District in Pasadena CA, Michael.  Though the name brings back memories of my NYU school days which also happen to center near Washington Square.

It sounds like an excellent choice for buyers wanting lots of character in a neighborhood. Those houses don't stay on the market long.

The Washington Square Landmark District looks like an interesting neighborhood, Michael Jacobs.  Diversity in housing stock makes it an area with something for everyone!  Great amenities and mature trees really make it shine!

Ron Marshall - Washington Square is a relatively small neighborhood so the turnover in a given year is typically small.   You're definitely spot on with your mention of the trees --- whether it is the palms that line Palm Terrace or trees than create a canopy on Belvidere or Claremont, they are very much a part of this Pasadena Landmark District.
