Description

This exceptional property, Gordon Kaufmann's notable Palladian masterpiece, is located in the Huntington Library estate area of San Marino. Surrounded by architecturally significant homes, the H. L. Thompson House is the epitome of Old World elegance from the 'Golden Age' of Southern California Architecture. A graceful motor court with fountain leads to an arched entry with imposing mahogany double doors opening to the impressive foyer with black and white marble tile floor and 12 foot ceiling; a spacious cloak room and a separate guest bath with mirrored ante room are adjacent. The great room with stately Italian black marble fireplace and ceiling painted by Giovanni Smeraldi is mansion scale as is the formal dining room with Zuber wallpaper, fireplace and splendid chandelier, both rooms with French doors to the loggia and garden. A handsome paneled library with fireplace and prohibition era hidden bar opens beyond the magnificent staircase. A generous butler's pantry / breakfast room and a spacious kitchen are conveniently placed; a large laundry room is nearby. There is an enclosed light-filled sun room across from the kitchen and formal dining room with family room potential. A small bedroom and bath, back stairs and a flower arranging room complete the first floor. Upstairs, are three large bedrooms with baths en suite including the primary suite which features a bright bedroom, a lady's dressing room and bath, a sitting room with fireplace, a bonus room and a gentleman's bath. There are three additional bedrooms and two baths. The sizeable basement consists of numerous rough rooms within the concrete, steel girdered foundation. One is currently mirrored to be an exercise room and another with walk-in safe has wine storage. An elevator runs between the basement and the first and second floors. There is a two car garage on the west side of the residence and a four car garage with chauffeur's bedroom and bath on the east. Guest quarters are above the four car garage consisting of a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. The gated property of over one level acre has mature plantings from the original landscaper, A. E. Hanson. A lovely pool and spa and a lighted north / south tennis court confirm that this special residence has all the components of a true estate. Property is sold 'As is'
