On the corner of elegant San Rafael Ave, 999 Buckingham makes an historic and architectural statement. This single owner home was designed and built by renowned architects Buff, Smith and Hensman. The firm of Buff and Hensman created hundreds of houses that defined the post-war American dream. Their trademark was creating beautifully proportioned spaces. They were masters at utilizing and privatizing a lot of any angle and size and they had a unique ability to highlight both the small and large elements that make a house a fine personal experience for the owner.
999 Buckingham is a perfect example of Buff and Hensman's finesse. With over 3,300 square feet, the house was built for entertaining. At entry, we’re welcomed by a step up formal dining room and open vaulted living room space with redwood ceilings, fireplace and seamless glass that draws the eye to views of San Gabriel mountains and lush yard. An open kitchen with an informal dining area also leads to the yard via industrial french doors for easy entertaining. A spacious master retreat is on located the west wing of the house and features a sitting area, gas fireplace, built-in desk/office space, a roomy dressing area, large soaking tub and separate shower and toilet room. Off the master is a private sitting patio. To the east of the kitchen are three more sizable bedrooms and two baths. The pool and yard are a private paradise, with waterfall, lounging decks and rose gardens.
