This French Provincial home was designed by famed architect Wallace Neff for rancher and citrus grower George M. Buffum.
Restored to near-original condition, it features five family bedrooms, four and one-half baths, maid's quarters, formal dining room, gourmet kitchen and grand living room with a beautiful stone fireplace.
The many architectural details include arched doorways, iron hardware, period fixtures, French doors and multi-paned wood windows.
Two covered porches and a broad terrace connect the house to the grounds. Situated on a sprawling lot of over one-half acre, with mature landscaping, garden spaces and swimming pool, the property retains the sense of its rural past in a manageable scale today.
