Did you end up finding your townhouse? I hope so, but if you did not I would love to help you.
Have you heard of the community "Monterey Hills" right out side of South Pasadena? It is a community of condos and town homes located right of the 110. It is 5 min from So. Pasadena and at the same time very close to downtown because of its proximity to the 110 fwy. The community is small and neighborly with many people walking their dogs in the small parks on the hill and visiting the local "fresco market" (a whole foods/trader joes type store) located less then a mi from the condos.
Feel free to contact me anytime and have a great day!... more
