Imagine the possibilities with this beautiful 1908 American Foursquare style home. Inspired by the architectural designs from the great plains, this home is waiting to have modern amenities infused into its presentation. After having been enjoyed by the same family for the last 55 years, this home is ready for its next chapter. There is great potential for creating a lovely estate among the many other estates of the Altadena area.
From the grand central foyer with its stately staircase, to the formal living room with 9 ½ foot high ceilings and hardwood floors, to the seamless flow into the other living places, you can imagine the grand parties of the roaring 20’s and on. The home is beautifully light-filled from all directions, with great cross ventilation, promoting tranquility, creativity and shared life together. A central staircase leads upstairs to 3 spacious bedrooms, a 4th smaller bedroom, an office area, two bathrooms and an enclosed porch. Downstairs is a fifth bedroom, located off the laundry room with a half bath and private entrance.
This grand American Foursquare style home, called the Coulston/Bustin house was designed by F.S. Allen, and built by Robert S. Foss in 1908. Its potential for recaptured grandeur alongside its architectural significance makes this home a worthy project for end game impact in the community.
