Designed by prominent architect, Louis DuPuget Millar, and known as the Kate Duncan House, this rare Prairie School style estate has been thoughtfully accented, restored and treasured for over 30 years by its current owners. Offering 5,372 SF of living space on over 1/2 acre lot set well back from the street, this home offers immense architectural appeal and abundant space for today's lifestyle. Located within the beautiful foothill community of Altadena, this expansive property offers 6 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, 101 original Prairie School windows. The spacious five-room primary suite is complete with its own private office or can be down-sized to a 3-room primary suite, thus producing 2 additional bedrooms. Of note, is a first-floor guest suite at the rear of the house. The home also has its own creative 3rd floor studio of over 400 SF with stunning views on all 4 sides of the room. This magnificent freshly painted three-story south-facing home has striking views of the San Gabriel Mountains and Downtown Los Angeles, and even the coast on a clear day! The brand-new energy-efficient roof protects the home from UV damage as a seamless, 'Cool Roof' system on both garage and main house. The generous entertainment space in a quiet, private setting has 17 mature trees throughout the property including 7 Heritage Oaks, a rare Pacific Madrone, shaded by a large Liquid Amber which may account for the Madrone's longevity, two Royal African palms, guava, tangerine, lemon and orange trees and recently re-landscaped grounds. The house is wired for 7 dedicated computer lines, 3 independent Internet lines and plumbing repairs in recent times have been all copper. The basement and under-house storage coupled with five walk-in closets and 3 built-in armoires provides massive storage space. The rear yard features a two-car detached garage with workshop, spacious entertainment patios, and a circular driveway to a separate entrance from Maiden Lane. This gorgeous estate property is truly a rare historical find.
