The estate’s architect, Wallace Neff’s chief draftsman before opening his own office, is well noted for his plan for Pasadena City College and many other buildings of regional significance. Here, he carefully sited the structures on almost an acre in the estates section of San Marino. This rare offering shares its history and prestige with some of the most significant historic homes in Southern California. Sited amid lush surrounding gardens, the residence opens to an expansive central courtyard with fountain, leading to a full sized pool, spa, outdoor dining area with fireplace, and a vegetable garden. Overlooking the pool is a large guesthouse incorporating a spacious beamed room with kitchen, bar, fireplace, grill and wood burning pizza oven, perfect for entertaining, a media room, bedroom, office, changing room, baths, and sauna. There are 5 bedrooms, 7 baths, a library, office, an enclosed patio with French steel frame glass doors into the courtyard, 3 car garage, wine room and basement. The property is fully gated, private & secure. Here is a rare opportunity to own and luxuriate in one of San Marino’s great estates. Includes a residence-sized guesthouse with above mentioned amenities not included in overall SF.

The residence was featured in this Los Angeles Times slideshow of Joachim Splichal’s kitchen
