Library District Estate

Adjacent to the iconic Huntington Library and Botanical Gardens, and sited on one of San

Marino’s premier streets, this classic colonial home was the mastermind of noted

architect Theodore L Pletsch. Built in 1935, this property has been under the stewardship of the

same family for over 60 years. Maintaining its original architectural character with preserved

original hardwood floors; the home showcases a dramatic two-story entry with a sweeping

staircase, leading to the 4 bedrooms upstairs. The large sunken living room is

detailed with crown molding, wainscoting, and fine woodworking that frames the stunning

marble fireplace. These same appointments are themed in the formal dining room, which is

further enhanced by a lovely bay window. A sunny garden room opens to a large patio. In

addition to a 5th bedroom downstairs, there is a charming wood paneled den, ideal as a home

office. A key feature to the home’s design is the abundance of windows receiving natural lighting

into every room. The estate captures westerly tree top views of the Huntington’s Botanical

Gardens and easterly views of the resort-like rear gardens. The property also enjoys a sparkling

pool, fabulous cabana, and mountain views beyond.
