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 in 2008, with noted Architect David Serrurier, striking a delicate balance between modern updates and the original character of the home. The classic foyer leads into elegant public rooms: The living room which showcases an original, carved marble fireplace and the beautiful sun-filled dining room. The large open 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 redesigned adding a vaulted beamed ceiling, a 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 Waterworks free-standing tub and striking stone 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 salt water pool and brick patios. This truly unique San Marino home marries history and pedigree with the finest in modern amenities and comfortable living.
