Monrovia | The F.W. Burr Residence, 1894
150 North Myrtle Avenue | $1,900,000
First public offering. Constructed in 1894 by the Burr family, the three-story, seven-bedroom Victorian is part stately city house, part relaxed farmhouse. It stands on the northern end of Myrtle Avenue where it’s quieter and residential. Finished in well-maintained clapboard siding and fishlap shingles in a subtle color palette, the home’s large original double-hung windows invite plenty of natural light and mountain views; beautiful period wood detailing, wood floors, and twelve-foot-tall ceilings provide both texture and airiness. Features range from the ground floor workshop of the later two-story carriage house that accommodates up to six cars (complete with a professional walk-in pit for underbelly work) to a working sauna and a living/bedroom suite on the third floor. The home’s main floor includes a bright, sunny double living room with ornate fireplace; an original wood door between the two parts allows you to close off part of the space for different activities. Across the hall, the wood paneled office with built-in bookshelves and a fireplace, feeling like an old-fashioned doctor’s office, is a cocoon promising quiet time and focus. Much of the woodwork throughout the entire house reflects the meticulous care of the decades-long owners, who were determined to bring only the best craftsmanship and period-appropriate detailing throughout the entire house, down to the working turn-of-the-century intercom system (now electric) and light fixtures. Another example is the huge wine cellar occupying a good deal of the rambling basement, handmade in redwood by the master carpenter. While the home’s style may feel like the 1890s, many systems have been upgraded to today’s standards, including the unusual and rugged roof, textured to simulate shingles. While contemporary, it never compromises the building’s style and self-assurance.
