Set on a secluded half acre-plus site down a private drive, this remarkable 1939 Hacienda evokes a true sense of the romance of 19th Century California. Designed and constructed by noted engineer Robert Van Stan and his wife Marie Van Stan, this home was recognized as "one of the most comfortable and attractive" of its age. Original plans and records detail the reinforced adobe walls, custom cabinetry and gabled Spanish tile roof.
Its classic floor plan features four bedrooms, two and three-quarter baths, formal dining room, den with bar, kitchen with breakfast nook, and separate laundry room. The grand living room has a dramatic arched entry, wood-burning fireplace, built-in window seat overlooking the backyard, and cathedral ceiling with exposed beams. A free-standing family room, located across the breezeway, is well suited for use as a home office or media room.
Authentic period details, including original hardware and fixtures, wood-beamed ceilings, planked doors, multi-paned casement windows, and colorful tiles, are found throughout.
The extensive grounds offer a pool, verandas, paths and patios. Mature fruit and shade trees, gardens and walkways, undeveloped spaces and intimate settings contribute to the privacy and seclusion. This home is truly a unique piece of Old California that remains in modern La Canada Flintridge.
