Located in the most prestigious and desirable neighborhood of San Marino, directly across from the Huntington Library and Gardens, this classic 1946 Monterey Colonial home sits back on a 34,576 sq ft lot with drought-tolerant plants and dozens of mature citrus, oak and redwood trees creating total privacy in a serene park-like setting. Drive up the long circular tree-lined driveway to a 2 car garage plus ample parking for family and guests. A brick-paved front walkway and porch welcome you to the front entrance and foyer, which open directly into the formal dining room and generous living room with wood burning fireplace. Both have large expanses of windows for ample sunlight and views to the gardens. French doors lead out to brick patio for outdoor entertaining in the private sun-filled back yard with sparkling swimming pool located in its own gated area. The large eat-in kitchen is lined with cabinets and is adjacent to a laundry room with additional pantry and storage closets, and a convenient side entry from the driveway. The first lower level bedroom is light-filled and has private access to a 3/4 bath and its own walk-in closet. The second lower level bedroom is off the kitchen/laundry room and has its own 3/4 bath and would be a perfect library or home office. Walk up the broad, open stairway off the foyer to the first second level bedroom with full bath, walk-in closet, and access to the front balcony and a private rear terrace. Continue down the long hallway with 3 additional storage closets, to the large private master suite with wood-burning fireplace, French doors leading to the front balcony, a nursery/dressing room and private master bath. The house was originally built by an engineer with Ralph M Parsons for his personal residence, and well maintained by its current owners for 50 years. It has newly refinished Oak hardwood floors throughout, is freshly painted and is move in ready. Add-on and/or modernize to create your family’s dream home.
