Description

Welcome to the Chouinard House, birthplace of the internationally renowned Chouinard Foundation and originally the home of distinguished art educator Nelbert Chouinard! This stunning Monterey Colonial Revival, originally built in 1907, is designated as South Pasadena's Cultural Landmark number 44. Due to the historical significance of the home, the house has been approved as one of only two Mills Act homes in South Pasadena, a designation that provides tax breaks for restored landmarks. The home features 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and is 2,633 square feet on a sprawling 19,508 square foot lot. Located in South Pasadena and partially within the city of San Marino, the beautifully landscaped front yard leads to the long, double-wide driveway where you will find a lush garden landscape with a wide variety of greenery and towering vintage trees that provide an abundance of privacy and shade. The formal foyer leads into a warm and inviting living room highlighted by the beautiful original Douglas Fir floors, original fireplace, built-in solid walnut entertainment cabinet and large picture window with views of the back patio and vintage pond. The kitchen features concrete countertops, a cantilevered breakfast bar, custom cabinetry and leads into the light and bright dining room with French doors leading to the gorgeous backyard, pool and spa. On the top floor you'll find the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and French doors that lead to an expansive outdoor balcony that stretches the entire length of the master suite, overlooking the front yard and providing a serene garden setting. Continuing down the hall from the master bedroom you'll find the master bathroom and a fifth bedroom which was converted into a library, featuring a fireplace as well as French doors leading to the balcony. The middle floor features three more bedrooms and a traditional sleeping porch with stunning views. The original backyard stairs built along a tiered garden featuring various plantings lead to an art studio that is now permitted for a 705 square foot Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU). The detached garage was originally a tandem garage that was remodeled into a 1-car garage with the back half converted to a soundproof music studio which includes electrical and a ductless mini-split air conditioning unit. The home was fully restored with new infrastructure including updated plumbing, electrical, irrigation, roof, and much more. Additional features include 150 recessed art lights, high end vintage push button switches with bronze plates throughout, Sedona Lynx gas BBQ, a backup generator, HALO whole-house water filter, and much more. The current owners have treasured this home for over 24 years and have beautifully restored and upgraded it numerous times. Close to South Pasadena's Award-Winning Blue Ribbon Schools, shops and restaurants, this is a rare opportunity to own one of South Pasadena's most acclaimed Cultural Landmarks.
