Home to one of the last producing citrus orchards in Glendora, the large, Spanish Colonial Revival house and remaining orange grove is now available for the first time on the open market. Largely hidden behind Glendora's landmarked National Register of Historic Places Bougainvilleas, the Hanley-Pittman Estate and citrus orchard are tangible reminders of California's historic fantasy past. The economic boosterism which promoted prosperity, health benefits, independence, and an abundance of land, became the hallmarks of selling California to an audience desperate for change. All of these requisite desires are present here. Properties such as this served as calling cards to the stalwart midwestern and northeastern population seeking respite in the region's tepid climate. Purchasing a property like this during California's golden age was a fait accompli to buyers seeking a romanticized new beginning free from limited outdoor space and inclement weather. Vintage, colorful bathroom and kitchen tiles, original painted walls and stained wood add to the overall fabric of the historic house and grounds. Under the care of the same family since 1943, the historic Hanley-Pittman estate is ready for the next, qualified stewards.
