Property Description

This 1930's stately and elegant architectural gem by architect Kenneth Gordon provides the ultimate self-contained private retreat with Large Lawn Areas, Salt-Water Pool/Spa, Outdoor Kitchen, Game/Workout Room, Gourmet Kitchen, Over-Sized Garage, Large Rooms/Bathrooms with Plentiful Closet Space, Wine Cellar, and Exquisite Inlaid Oak Flooring throughout. Located on a large, level lot in the desirable Huntington Library area of San Marino, this Mediterranean Revival presents a classic floor plan. The impressive entry opens on the right to a grand living room with imposing fireplace and French doors leading to the large logia providing a beautiful view of the garden. The living room also has lovely windows overlooking the front garden and is complemented by a generous, formal dining room with a lovely chandelier and a coffered, box beam ceiling. Around the corner is a handsome library with wood-paneled built-ins and a doorway to the covered logia with built-in mister system. A second fireplace can be found in the family room which has a built-in bar accented by a rondel window. The expanded Primary Suite includes separate his and hers custom closets, an en-suite primary bathroom with steam shower and his/her sink areas, separately zoned HVAC, as well as as an inviting balcony overlooking the lushly landscaped private backyard with separate dog run area. The oversized garage provides 3 generous car spaces as well as additional storage. The library houses over 800 books, and each bedroom has its own en-suite bathroom and generous closet/storage space. The rounded arches, high ceilings, wrought iron and oak wood flooring provide an elegance reminiscent of a home of this era. The separate butler's pantry contains the original custom wood counter that leads into the beautifully restored gourmet chef's kitchen with upgraded appliances including a built-in refrigerator/freezer, Miele dishwashers, center island, ample cabinetry, and an over-sized oven with a beautifully accented custom range hood. The property also has a separate maid's/guest room and bathroom as well as a separate laundry area just off the kitchen. The property has been carefully and thoughtfully restored maintaining the original architectural integrity of the home. It's rare to find an architectural home with spacious rooms and closets that suits current day needs yet retains its original character and charm.
