Grandiose 1908 Mission Revival Estate designed by renowned architects G. Lawrence Stimson and Greene & Greene and nestled on one of the most historic and esteemed streets in South Pasadena. The 'Oaklawn Tract' was one of the first three tracts developed in South Pasadena in the early 1900's and quickly became known as the 'The Suburb Deluxe.' Conceived by the South Pasadena Realty and Improvement Company then soon after taken over by the S. W. Ferguson Company, the 'Oaklawn Tract' was intended to attract 'people of wealth and refinement' to build 'fine' homes, many of which, including this remarkable home, still exist today. This lovingly maintained home was Stimson's first home built in the Oaklawn development, and numerous details of his and the Greene brothers design work are seen throughout the interior & exterior. The original broad bricked walkway, covered lanai and red tile roof create an abundance of curb appeal enhancing the overall first impression of this special home. The grand front door of heavy mahogany with nouveau stained glass was artistically designed to complement the interior Greene and Greene detailed work. Located in the foyer of the home is the staircase featuring newel posts with intricate inlaid wood work in ebony and brass. The grandest room is the living area boasting wood work of solid Tabasco mahogany designed in the most artistic fashion especially on the ceiling. Many of the timbers of the wood work are entwined by wooden pegs. The formal dining room highlighted by rich mahogany wainscoting with picture shelf and emerald green Grueby tiled fireplace adding to the romantic ambiance of fine dining. In 1979 the kitchen was remodeled adding a huge center island and ample counter space. The spacious open and airy second floor features wide hallways, one of Stimson's design trademarks, and 5 bedrooms each with their own unique charm and character. This home is 3 levels with the lowest level complete with a Billiard Room and extensive concrete basement ideal for storage, workshop, wine room and much more. Two story detached garage offers upstairs guest quarters with an exterior staircase. This space is ideal for out-of-town guests or home office. Backyard is ideal for large gatherings, enjoying some fun-in-the-sun while swimming in the large pool or simply relaxing in the outdoor canopy pergola. This treasure is museum quality with timeless architecture and has been meticulously maintained by its current owner for over 54 years.
