The Robert Philip Flint House, 1915This English Arts & Crafts estate is one of the most significant architectural properties in the South Arroyo area. Originally designed by noted architect Stiles O Clements (Hollywood Park Race Track, Beverly Hills HS) it was enlarged in 1931 by Kenneth A Gordon (Egyptian Theatre) and most recently extensively redesigned and updated for the Pasadena Showcase House of Design. Sometimes referred to as the 'Chandler House', it was owned for a long period by Philip & Alberta Chandler, son of Harry Chandler, publisher of the Los Angeles Times. Grand in design with its 24'x40' redwood Great Room with heavy beamed ceiling, oversized fireplace and oak flooring, the public rooms were meant to impress and entertain on the largest of scale. Conversely, the private, family floor of the home with bedrooms of cedar and white enamel with tile fireplaces is cozy and livable. Spanning over 9,000 sf with an additional 1,300 sf carriage house and situated on over 3.5 flat, gated acres, the Flint House is truly a throwback to the founding days of Pasadena and the Los Angeles area. Once fed exclusively by its stone well-house, before the days of municipal water, the estate still produces enough natural spring water to make it self-sustaining. With the ability to store water in its holding tanks, the estate can provide its own water for on demand use. In addition, the estate has a large organic vegetable garden, greenhouse, lathhouse, stream, pond and chicken coop. Spanning the entire block from Grand Avenue to Arroyo Blvd, the Flint House & Gardens is one of the rarest of opportunities to own a significant architectural home on multiple acres, with its own water source, close to downtown LA and the studios of Burbank.Features: *Updated systems, 600 amp electrical. *Two entrances off Grand Ave, two automatic auto gates off Arroyo Blvd. *1,300 sf 2-level 1BR/1BA + kitchen/family/office carriage house (not included in overall SF. *Pool bath and changing rooms. *Legacy tennis court. *Basketball court. *2014 Pasadena Showcase House.
