Set against the backdrop of the majestic San Gabriel Mountains, this 1917 Craftsman home is an excellent and well-preserved example of the architectural significance of the Arts and Crafts Movement. Fronted by a rugged river rock stone wall and anchored by twin hundred-year-old Canary Island palms, this home beckons the visitor up the steps of its enveloping wrap-around veranda and into a world of handmade craftsmanship and quality you’ve come to expect from an earlier era. The current owners have overseen a reverent renovation of the wood moldings, built-ins, doors/windows and framing in the living room, dining room, and TVroom/5th bedroom, stripping the layers of paint to restore the natural wood. New wiring and Craftsman light fixtures and sconces were installed in many rooms. You’ll be impressed by the exquisite simplicity and sophistication of the design of the living room and dining room. A built-in bookcase and a high-backed bench flank the brick fireplace in the living room. The dining room provides a substantial built-in sideboard/buffet and glass inlaid French doors that lead to the outside. An office/library is accessed from the living room. The kitchen and baths have been tastefully updated and meld the old style with newer amenities. The center hall stairway leads to the four bedrooms on the second floor. The rear grounds are expansive and provide opportunities for a pool, an ADU or just more gardens. The rear patio with its views of the mountains to the north provides a perfect spot for outdoor entertaining. Hand-crafted and unique, this is a home where almost every application is original and classic. Buying a piece of history could be your best investment yet: buyer should investigate Mills’ Act possibilities. This is truly an American Craftsman masterpiece.
