Home Of The Week
1665 Euston Road
A rare find in the San Marino Huntington Library District, this stunning contemporary residence has undergone two significant renovations since it was originally designed by Buff & Hensman in 1975.
In 2011, architect Donald Hensman oversaw a meticulous interior renovation and in 2015, the current owner remodeled the approximately 7,200-square-foot home again and completed a sweeping landscaping improvement designed by Ben Lundgren.
The one-of-a-kind private retreat is situated on an approximately 1.5-acre south-facing all-usable lot that is perfectly designed to be in harmony with its natural setting.
An open floor plan incorporates soaring two-story ceilings and sleek walls of glass, providing abundant natural light and picturesque views of the gorgeous park-like garden grounds from every room.
In addition to its six bedrooms, the home includes a magnificent entry foyer, two staircases, a living room with a fireplace, family room, guest room, wine cellar, laundry room and laundry chute. The gourmet kitchen, featuring an island, breakfast bar, custom cabinets and stone countertops, opens to the family room and office, which are beautifully proportioned with functional flow to the outdoors.
Upstairs, the master bedroom boasts a balcony, fireplace, sitting area, walk-in closet and bathroom with a soaking tub, glass-enclosed shower and dual sinks. Each bathroom is creatively designed to exude tranquility.
Other highlights of the property include a saltwater pool with a diving board and spa, three-car garage, ample parking for guests, lighted recently renovated north-south championship tennis court and an expansive wood viewing deck beneath a canopy of trees. There is also a 750-square-foot tennis pavilion/ guesthouse with a full bath and plenty of space for outdoor entertaining.
The neighborhood is served by the highly rated San Marino Unified School District and is less than a mile from the renowned Huntington Library, Art Collections and Botanical Gardens
