Property Description

'The Valentine House'Originally built in 1915 for Walter Valentine, this 'Small Jewel Box '' was first designed by George Webster and then was re-imagined and added on to in 1922 by Henry Greene of the famous Greene & Greene brothers. Located on a private drive at the northernmost part of Holliston Avenue, this craftsman masterpiece rests on a level and richly forested lot which is 20,276 square feet, and consists of Redwood and Oak trees, shaded fern glen paths and is perched on the edge of an open canyon that offers breathtaking views of Rubio Canyon and the San Gabriel Mountains.There are two levels to this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home, which measures out to 1,890 square feet. The first level is reached by traveling up two Arroyo Stone staircases that were designed by Henry Greene, past an 'L' shaped patio also designed by Mr. Greene, with an Arroyo Stone fireplace. The front door opens to a living room with views of the front and side yard, polished Oak floors, beautiful Douglas Fir moldings and Batchelder tile fireplace with a mantle of the same Douglas Fir wood. There are two two-step staircases off the living room, one leads down into the music room that has a Douglas Fir bookcase, moldings and closet, original wall sconce, large viewing window and a door leading out to the side patio. The other steps lead down to a formal dining room with built-in hutch, original chandelier and wall sconce, large French doors that go out to a private patio, and the same polished oak floors that are found in the music room and bedrooms.There are two bedrooms on this level, offering breathtaking views of Rubio Canyon and the San Gabriel Mountains, large closets and original light fixtures. The main bathroom of the home is found on this level and features a pedestal sink, hex floor tile, subway tile, skylight and a deep soaking tub. A well-lit kitchen with original cabinetry leads to the door to an outside stairway that goes down to the lower level. Here you find an office/library that has polished 1x4 Douglas Fir floors, a beautiful bookcase & cabinet made out of the same wood, wall & ceiling wainscoting and two windows offering the same canyon & mountain views that are found throughout. The laundry and a small bathroom are adjacent to this room, and finally there is the third bedroom, with a polished oak floor, large closet, original wall sconces, two viewing windows and a decorative craftsman door that leads out to the backyard.
