Library District Estate.
Adjacent to the iconic Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, and sited on one of San Marino’s premier streets, this classic colonial home was the mastermind of noted architect Theodore L Pletsch. Built in 1935, this property has been under the stewardship of the same family for over 60 years. Maintaining its original architectural character with preserved original hardwood floors; the home showcases a dramatic two-story entry with a sweeping staircase, leading to the 4 bedrooms upstairs. The large sunken living room is detailed with crown molding, wainscoting, and fine woodworking that frames the stunning marble fireplace. These same appointments are themed in the formal dining room, which is further enhanced by a lovely bay window. A sunny garden room opens to a large patio. In addition to a 5th bedroom downstairs, there is a charming wood paneled den, ideal as a home office. A key feature to the home’s design is the abundance of windows receiving natural lighting into every room. The estate captures westerly tree top views of the Huntington’s Botanical Gardens and easterly views of the resort-like rear gardens. The property also enjoys a sparkling pool, fabulous cabana, and mountain views beyond.
