1885 Warwick Road, San Marino, CA
Set amid the architectural homes on one of the lovelier streets south of Huntington Drive in San Marino, this gracious 1929 Mediterranean has been enhanced for today’s living while preserving its period appeal. In front, six lacy Juliet balconies grace the upper windows and a wrought iron fixture lights the arched doorway. Inside, gleaming hardwood floors, large windows, arched doorways and graceful wrought iron accents blend with updated elements like the fully modernized kitchen with Wolf appliances, marble countertops, island and eat-in space. A separate laundry room is nearby. The spacious 3,190 square foot home includes a formal living room with carved limestone mantelpiece and arched picture window; a formal dining room with decorative wainscoting and crystal chandelier; a family room; and a large office area. A beautiful stairway with a graceful wrought iron railing rises to the second-level master suite with its impressive walk-in closet. The large updated bath glows with light marble finishes and a luxurious freestanding soaking tub. Two more bedrooms and baths complete this level. The very private 11,423 square foot grounds are embraced by hedges and shaded by mature trees. Near the pool and hot tub, a pergola-shaded patio welcomes outdoor entertaining. Nearby, a large newer finished garage offers expansive storage. Set amid award-winning schools including nearby Valentine Elementary, the beautiful neighborhood is close to Huntington Library and Gardens and Lacy Park.
