This gracious home was built in 1915 by one of Pasadena's famous architects, Myron Hunt. This beautiful property sits on top of a hill that lends itself to beautiful mountain views and park-like gardens. Myron Hunt worked with master builder Peter Hall on this house. Mr. Hall also built iconic treasures including The Gamble House as well as many of The Greene and Greene properties around Pasadena. Besides Mr. Hunts achievements in residential architecture, Myron Hunt was a philanthropist, and his wife founded Polytechnic School in Pasadena. Mr. Hunts' most notable buildings were the Pasadena Public Library, The Rose Bowl, The Huntington Art Gallery, The Huntington Hotel which is now The Langham, buildings at Cal Tech, LACMA and famous residences throughout Southern California. Michael McGilvray of McGilvray Construction and Development renovated and restored this noteworthy house. McGilvray kept the structural lines maintaining the architect's vision leaving floor- to- ceiling windows. McGilvray's new interior arrangement yielded additional square feet. It boasts Five bedrooms, Seven bathrooms (2 full, 3 3/4 and 2 1/2 baths), Gourmet kitchen with Wolfe, Sub-Zero, and Asko appliances. Off the kitchen and formal dining room leads to a large covered balcony this space is perfect for dining al fresco. The pillars on the verandah were thoughtfully moved to enhance the gorgeous view. The bathrooms and kitchens are timeless and sophisticated white Carrera marble. The lower level leads out to a brick balcony with an adjoining kitchen area stocked with icemaker, refrigerator, dishwasher, and custom temperature controlled wine cellar -perfect for entertaining. Other notable and period details are the wainscoting, beautiful builtins throughout the house, custom master walk-in closet, wet bar including an icemaker in the library. The living room and library share an open fireplace.
