Graciously set back from renowned South San Rafael Avenue and sited to capture arresting views of the San Gabriels beyond, this sophisticated Mediterranean with cues of Regency style from a 1940s enhancement awaits only its fifth owner. Nearly three quarters of a flat acre of sweeping grassy lawn, north/south tennis court, swimmers’ pool with bar cabana, changing bathroom and patio loggia – as well as a circular motor court for diplomatic entry — all set the stage for palatial entertaining.

Entry reception foyer, formal living room anchored by a handsome fireplace, and an elegant dining room with pass-thru cocktail nook – all with expansive volumes, crafted moldings, oversized windows and French doors that lead to the fifty foot viewing and sitting room with original terrazzo flooring and glass sliders. Paneled library/den with adjacent powder room.

Chef’s kitchen with custom cabinetry and breakfast alcove with direct access to a vista-facing veranda terrace. Quintessential indoor/outdoor California living.

Upstairs, a flexible bedroom program with two primary bedroom suites accessed from the central landing, two additional bedrooms and an enclosed study/bedroom porch. Three bathrooms.

Additionally, first floor service/nanny quarters with a bathroom, and laundry room. Breezeway to the flower room/workshop, as well as two-car garage.
