Gorgeous historic landmark located in North Monrovia within walking distance of Myrtle Avenue shops and restaurants. This house was built near the turn of the century for merchant George W. Black and family. It exhibits both Queen Anne and Colonial Revival architectural styles with a steeply pitched side-gabled roof crowning the residence, fishscale shingles in the gable peaks, and double-hung Queen Anne style windows. In 2005, the Monrovia City Council awarded the home with Mills Act recognition, providing substantial property tax savings to the owner. The home is two stories with more than 2,000 sqft of living space. In 2020, new two-zone central air was installed as well as new carpeting on the second floor. The home features four large bedrooms, three baths and a detached garage. The property has been well maintained and updated with improvements throughout the years allowing for all the comforts of modern-day living while taking advantage of the historic charm. There is a large swimming pool with safety fencing. Seismic retrofitting was completed in 2007. The home is currently operated as a duplex and can also function as a single family residence. Ideal for the discerning family or investor looking for a historic crown jewel residence in Monrovia.
