This distinctive property, known as the Cason House, was designed with a rich architectural vocabulary, an Art Moderne Colonial Revival-style home with upscale, stylish details. Constructed in 1937 with quality materials, this gracious home has earned designation as a Monrovia Historic Landmark, providing the owners tremendous savings in reduced property taxes from participation in the Mills Act Program.
This attractive property will satisfying those appreciative of the vintage design elements while enjoying the upgraded amenities seamlessly integrated into its historic fabric. Some of the original features include the exterior siding, lovely windows, interior doors with charming hardware, trey ceiling, chair railing, decorative display shelves, well-maintained bathroom tilework and fixtures as well as handsome oak flooring throughout most of the home. The common rooms are nicely sized offering period details for an overall appealing interior.
A spacious formal living room is located off the entry and features an attractive ”Heatilator” fireplace, wall-to-wall bookshelves, views of the front and side yards and abundant shade from the mature sycamore trees, all to the accompaniment of the soothing sounds of the outdoor water fountain.
There is a separate formal dining room that opens to the thoughtfully updated kitchen offering an in-kitchen breakfast room with built-in cabinets and access to the rear yard and large deck with retractable awnings for enjoyable outdoor meals. There is a downstairs bedroom (currently used as a den), 3/4 bath with shower and a separate laundry area that complete the lower level.
The primary bedroom features a dressing room and a full bathroom with original features that will delight all. There is also a finished sleeping porch that currently works beautifully as an office. The equally large second bedroom has plenty of space for any decor ideas and a fun ”secret” room for play or out-of-the-way storage.
The home is encircled by delightful garden spaces which can be enjoyed by the most avid at-home gardener or by those desiring at-home relaxation amid the verdant beauty created by the mature and varied trees (fruit and shade alike), attractive shrubbery and manageable outdoor spaces.
Ideally located north of Foothill, just a few blocks from Monrovia’s charming boutiques, unique shops and array of delicious restaurants, this is a home to love for the ages with eye-catching architectural details and today’s amenities.
