THE ROBERT PHILIP FLINT HOUSE & GARDENS, 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 Racetrack, Beverly Hills HS) it was enlarged in 1931 by Kenneth A Gordon (Egyptian Theatre) and extensively renovated 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 scales. 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 day of municipal water, THE ESTATE STILL PRODUCES ENOUGH NATURAL SPRING WATER TO MAKE IT SELF-SUSTAINING. With the ability to store water in its three holding tanks, the estate can provide its own water for on demand use.** In addition, the estate has an organic vegetable garden, greenhouse, lathhouse, stream and pond. Spanning the entire block from Grand Avenue to Arroyo Blvd, the Flint House is one of the rarest of opportunities to own a significant architectural home on multiple acres of land, with its own water source, close to downtown LA and the studios of Burbank.RECENT UPDATES: *2022 Installed new spring well capture, holding and irrigation system. *2022 Re-worked property drains and irrigation systems. *2022 Re-designed lower-level wine room. *2021-2022 Complete home restoration, including: Door/window hardware and locks, countertops, original windows, electric system (600 amp), wallcoverings and flooring. *2021 Re-landscape front and rear. *2021 Section I termite completion.
