Sophisticated Monterey Colonial
A very special Monterey Colonial estate nestled in the famed Huntington Library area. This half-acre plus lot was once a sloping, rambling fruit orchard and the original orange trees remain in place in the inner courtyard designed around them. Built by the current owners, and under their requested design features, architect David Serrurier, builder Thomas Lake, and landscaped designer Thomas Batcheller Cox worked simultaneously to design a series of garden “rooms” around the magnificent two-story house. The elegance, tranquility and harmonious composition of elements envelop the entirety of home and landscape. The gracious living room and dining room capture the grandeur of an era gone-by, and beautifully meld with a spacious kitchen that seamlessly flows into the family room. The spacious upstairs master suite, which features private balcony with stunning mountain views, dual dressing rooms, and large closets, is coupled with two additional elegant bedrooms.
