plumBid auction: Bidding starts and ends on 6 May.This gracious Monterey Colonial home was built in 1935 by prolific and highly regarded designer and builder, E. A. Daniell. Upon arrival, the demilune driveway allows access to either the parklike backyard or the front entrance. The front entry welcomes you to a large living room with built-in bookcases, fireplace and original hardwood floors. French doors frame the wisteria covered pergola leading to the backyard. The entry hall opens to the formal dining room, adjacent to the eat-in kitchen. Designer E. A. Daniell took pride in creating, 'the best place to relax in a home, a cozy den' - this home offers three such cozy areas for relaxing and entertaining. Upstairs features 4 generous bedrooms, the downstairs bedroom with a separate entrance is currently used as an office. The 21,000 sf lot was professionally designed and landscaped by DSK Landscape Architects and features multiple patios for outdoor entertaining. Two large planters and six very large oak trees flank the stairs leading to the upper lawn and swimmers pool, with a view of the San Gabriel Mountains and the Secret Garden at the back. The game and performance arena is currently being used for ping pong, the sandbox and the lower yard. The kitchen garden includes five citrus trees and a small rose garden. A garage with workshop and ample driveway parking complete this gracious residence.
