Newly remodeled in 2017, this enchanting estate designed by architect, Charles M. Hutchinson, rests on 4.15 acres of well-manicured hillside only 20 miles outside of downtown Los Angeles. Inside the 4,540-square-foot interior, the 'Old World' mission-style architecture comes to fruition through cathedral-height ceilings, hand-hewn oak beams, original hardwood floors, and mahogany doors with a hand-painted family crest.
Upon arrival, head to the balcony to truly see the full vista of this Southern California mecca! Next, venture up the winding staircase to the turret tower to take in the phenomenal 360-degree view of the San Gabriel Valley, San Bernardino Mountains, and Santa Catalina Island. This is also the perfect place to begin and end the day your day in a state of meditation or relaxation!
With 284-average days of sunshine in Los Angeles, you'll spend most of your time tanning on the furnished patio or swimming in the sparkling pool. Escape the elements in the living room where you can watch shows on the flat-screen Smart TV or start a new novel.
As you relax, the chef of the group can whip up a homemade meal in the fully equipped kitchen to satiate everyone's hunger! Stainless steel appliances and countertops make home-cooking a breeze during your stay. Gather everyone around the stately 8-person dining table to savor your flavorful creation!
At the end of the day, treat yourself to a long soak in the master bathroom's garden tub before crawling into the plush king-sized bed for a peaceful night's sleep. Fellow travelers will rest soundly in one of the 3 additional guest bedrooms. In the morning, open the master bedroom's French doors to welcome in a new day!
