Park California Condos at 497 East California Blvd This is a recap of Park California condos for sale along with market activity dating back to 2012 for the Pasadena complex.

497 East California BlvdPark California is a 74 unit condominium complex built in 1980. Located at 497 East California Boulevard (northwest corner of Oakland Avenue) the complex is close to South Lake Avenue, Pasadena Playhouse District, Paseo Colorado and Old Pasadena where there are abundant shopping, dining and entertainment options.  


There are numerous museums in the neighborhood as well as Caltech(California Institute of Technology) just a short stroll away. Transportation via multiple freeways or Gold Line light rail station is convenient too.   I was surprised to see that the walkscore website ranks the address as 65 out 100 -- somewhat walkable as I find this neighborhood one that is very pedestrian-friendly.

Hi Michael - Not a lot of movement for Park California condos, so acquiring the one currently available unit is going to require a winning strategy, which just happens to be your specialty.

Park California Condos sounds like the perfect place to own a home.  How far is it to "Sand between your toes"???

 Belinda Spillman - if you're talking about the beach -- it's about 20 miles to either Santa Monica or Long Beach.  If it's just sand --- there are a couple of neighborhood parks where you can take your shovel and enjoy a sunny afternoon.
