Located in the Huntington Library district of San Marino this stately Monterey Colonial was built in 1931. The current owners meticulously renovated this gracious home striking a delicate balance between modern updates and original character architecture. The classic foyer leads into an elegant formal living room which showcases an original, carved marble fireplace and a well proportioned sun-filled dining room. The kitchen is magnificent featuring built-in bench seating flanked by windows that overlook the gardens, a large center island and the highest quality appliances – including a Sub Zero refrigerator and Wolf range. The Lavastone countertops themselves are a beautiful detail – hand-crafted specifically for this home and shipped from France - a beautiful enamel finish. Thoughtfully placed adjacent to the kitchen are an inspiring laundry/wrapping room, a full bathroom and a family room. The family room area was completely remodeled adding a vaulted beamed ceiling, gorgeous fireplace and French doors leading to the outdoor loggia – new spaces that feel absolutely authentic and true to the architecture. The second floor showcases four bedrooms including a graceful master bedroom suite with two sets of french doors leading to the balcony. The free-standing tub and striking tile make a dramatic statement in the master bathroom. The remaining three well proportioned bedrooms and two bathrooms on the second floor have also been remodeled with great attention to detail. The grounds are meticulously landscaped and maintained. The lush gardens, roses and specimen trees surround a wonderfully proportioned pool, brick patios and loggia. This truly unique San Marino home marries history and pedigree with the finest in modern amenities and comfortable family living.
