It official. According to recently published data and reported here in the Pasadena Sun, the prized public schools of San Marino and La Cañada Flintridge are ranked #1 and #2 in the state of California by their API scores. So what does it cost to buy a house in these beautiful communities that neighbor Pasadena? Here’s a sample of the current market:

An approximately 3,500 sq. foot 5 bedroom, 3.75 bath Contemporary in La Cañada Flintridge (pictured above) is on the market for $1,665,000. Built in 1964, recently remodeled, it has views to the Pacific Ocean and a gorgeous swimming pool. Listing courtesy of Samuel Buchanan, B & B Properties.

Another La Cañada home for sale right now is a 5 bedroom 4 bath Tudor with just over 4,300 sq. feet of living space. Built in 1935 and occupying a huge flat lot, the property features a detached guest house and pool. Priced at $2,160,000, this strikes me as a bargain considering the prime location and amount of house you’re getting. Listing courtesy of Anne Sanborn, Sotheby’s Int’l Realty.
