The grand and exotic Andrew McNally Estate is an icon of the luxe Southern California promise that called those from colder climates to the bounty and sunshine available in Altadena at the foot of the San Gabriel Mountains. Upgraded and updated for modern living with over seventy-four hundred square feet of living area, this twenty-five room, nine-bedroom, six-bath, seven-fireplace estate is a once in a lifetime purchase opportunity. Don’t miss the third story turret. Could this be the most interesting home in the world?
Designed by Frederick Roehrig in 1887, maintained with integrity by the Dupuy family until present day, nearly all of its opulent nineteenth century features remain intact. Gorgeous remodeled kitchen and baths deliver instant livability. With panoramic views from the San Gabriels out to Catalina Island, there is no question that the estate, with aviary and four-car carriage house/garage, still reigns over the valley below.
Spacious public rooms with soaring ceilings, including the legendary and eccentric Turkish Room, thrill with rich detail and the welcome feeling of relaxation catalyzed by natural materials and artistic narrative. Carved woodwork and paneling, jeweled stained glass, 24 gas lamps including chandeliers, ornate bronze steam radiators, massive pocket doors of wood and leaded glass and a grand carved staircase rising to the second floor delight the eye. Windows are generous and light is plentiful.
