The Barnes House on Oak Ridge
A long winding driveway leads you to The Barnes House on Oak Ridge in the San Rafael Hills designed by prominent architect, Elmer Grey in 1913. Grey is best known for his design of the Pasadena Playhouse, Beverly Hills Hotel, and his co-design with Myron Hunt of the Henry Huntington residence in the Huntington Gardens in San Marino. Grey envisioned Southern California as a “unique American Mediterranean”. The Barnes House, which draws on English Arts and Crafts influences is considered to be one of Grey’s finest achievements in the Craftsman style. There are six bedrooms and five baths in this spacious home - beautifully situated on over an acre and a half of land. With high boxwood ceilings, lovely hardwood floors, French doors, built-ins, and an airy interior with views out of almost every window of the gardens and Arroyo Seco. This is a unique opportunity to own a piece of Pasadena’s architectural history.
