Built at the height of Southern California’s romance with Spanish Colonial Revival style, this breathtaking 1925 estate is more enchanting than ever today. Set on close to an acre of striking grounds at 2075 Lombardy Road, the gated six-bedroom, six-bath residence embraces nearly 7,000 square feet of luxury.
An impressive foyer leads to a step-down formal living room with fireplace; grand formal dining room; kitchen with butler’s pantry, opening to a spacious family room; and library with fireplace. Impeccable period details are everywhere, from hardwood flooring, intricately patterned Spanish tiles and ornamental ironwork to hand-crafted wall finishes, coved ceilings, elaborate crown moldings and graceful archways.
All four upper bedrooms open to a long balcony with sweeping views of the grounds and the San Gabriel Mountains beyond. The master suite has two walk-in closets, a vanity with built-ins and double sinks, a marble bath with tub and spa, and a separate shower. Five-zone central air conditioning and heating ensure the ultimate indoor climate. There are separate guest quarters over the two-car garage.
On the grounds, a covered arcade with view-framing arches extends along one wing, then turns to continue beside the pool and spa. A large koi pond with water features creates a secluded, magical setting. The regulation size north/south tennis court has a newer US Open specification surface.
Located moments from the art and gardens of The Huntington in the heart of San Marino, served by award-winning schools, the estate is listed by Jeannie Garr Roddy at $7,777,777.
