Roland Coate Designed Estate in San Marino - 1260 Shenandoah

Spectacular!  What an absolutely spectacular estate perched at the top of Shenandoah in the hills of San Marino!  Built in 1926 and designed by one of the great architects of the 20th century, Roland Coate, this San Marino gem is something to behold.  Reminiscent of the stately manors and country houses found in Nantucket Connecticut or New York, this is one grand dames that will retain its charm for many years to come.

Mature oak trees, behind private gates, frame this beautifully landscaped lot - over 1 acre.  Lacy Park is a few minutes away, but truly, it feels like being in your own private oasis with plenty of land to entertain and relax.  You will have your own four-hole putting green, a koi pond with a 90 ft flowing stream, a pool and plenty of space to roam around.

The main house has 4 bedrooms and 6 baths with most of the bedrooms on the second level - each with spectacular views.  No fear though - an elevator offers easy access to the living quarters.  The kitchen retains its original charm with lots of drawers and built ins.  A carriage house has been converted into a gym, spa retreat and a lovely guest house.

It's really one of the loveliest homes I've seen in awhile and it can be yours for $7,530,000.

Co-listed by Sotheby's and Coldwell Banker, listing agents offer us a bit of history:

Originally built for Annie Wilson, the daughter of local pioneer Benjamin D. Wilson after whom Mount Wilson is named, on land owned by George S. Patton.

This home has been on the market, on and off, since May of 2010 and was originally listed for $8,860,000.  The last sale recorded was $5,780,000 in December of 2007, but has been extensively updated since.

If this is in your price range, this home is not to be missed.  So give me a call at 626-629-8439 for more information and a private consultation.
