1932 Wallace Neff Hacienda
This gated Hacienda-style house designed by famed architect Wallace Neff sits on a high knoll with panoramic views across the San Gabriel Valley including The Arroyo Seco, The Rose Bowl, Brookside Golf Course, The San Gabriel Mountains, and the beautiful city of Pasadena. The home was built and designed in 1931 for Clark B. Millikan. Situated on 2.15 acres, one’s desire for privacy and containment are simultaneously satisfied. Throughout the six bedroom, six and half bath architectural masterpiece, one can find such original details as heavy-beamed ceilings, tiled and hardwood floors, double French doors, six fireplaces, a tera cota courtyard and brick motor court. The classic living room has high heavy beam ceilings, tile floors, fireplace, and paneled French doors leading directly to the main terrace, with 180 degree views. While retaining the integrity of a noted house built in 1932, the current owner has completely taken the “systems” of the house into the 21st century.
