Historic Highlands,  an official Landmark District in Pasadena, is just to the north, uphill, from Bungalow Heaven and its boundaries cross the Pasadena and Altadena city limits.  Like Bungalow Heaven, Historic Highlands has an annual  home tour.  The architecture in this neighborhood, however, is more varied than in Bungalow Heaven.
