//The Mrs James Skinner House, Wallace Neff, FAIA// Acclaimed as one of Wallace Neff's finest works, The Mrs James Skinner House is located on a flat 1.8 ac parcel in San Marino's prime Estates Area. Built in 1929 for a Chicago widow whose husband had been a founder of Sears Roebuck, and later owned by JB Van Nuys, this fully gated palatial estate is a prime example of the Italian Period Revival style. Over scaled and grand in design, the house proclaims all the splendor and prominence of the pre-depression 'Golden Age' of architecture. Hand painted ceilings, marble floors, antique Baccarat crystal chandeliers, elaborate wrought iron balconies and banisters and a hand carved stone fountain accentuate the style and grace of the estate. Complementing these original characteristics, the property was extensively updated when it was the Pasadena Showcase House, which added modern conveniences and system upgrades. Together with 2BR guesthouse, complete with full kitchen, 6-car garage, N/S lighted tennis court, 50 ft covered pool, formal gardens and front and rear auto gates, the Mrs James Skinner House represents a rare opportunity to establish a Los Angeles Family Estate, with a prominent architectural and owner pedigree, for current and future generations. FEATURES: *Home Theater, Control4 Smart Home. *Detached 2BR/1BA Guesthouse w/full kitchen, FR, dining and sleeping porch (1,213 sf, included in overall SF). *Fully gated, automatic gates, front and rear. *Updated systems, 600amp electrical. *Partially finished basement with temperature controlled 2,500 btl wine cellar. *Chauffeur's quarters w/bath (627 sf, included in overall SF). *50' lap pool w/automatic cover and spa. *6-car garage with bath. *N/S lighted tennis court.
