Mod: Today's post comes to us courtesy of the noted real estate blog Curbed LA. This truly is a nice house and all, and that $1.5 million dollar price tag is very Sierra Madre these days. One more sign that preserving the community and not allowing stupid DSP-style development in is making some residents a boatload of cash. But, and as you will see from the comparison pictures I've posted below, don't those interior shots look an awful lot like the now butchered Henry A. Darling house?
Sierra Madre Craftsman bungalow with pleasant yard seeks $1.5M (Curbed link): This sweet Craftsman in Sierra Madre is just lovely. The house, built in 1921, is clad in redwood exterior siding and has an oversized front door. And, inside, there is a lot more glorious wood: white oak floors, wainscoting of mahogany, fir and redwood. French doors and casement windows abound.
The house’s three bedrooms are spacious and bright, and the bathrooms all feature vintage-looking tilework.
Saltillo tiles cover the floor of the dining room, which over looks the spacious rear yard. The house sits on a nearly 11,000-square-foot lot that includes a spa and views of the San Gabriel Mountains nearby.
The house in the foothills last sold in 1979 for $97,500. It’s now listed for $1.499M.
Mod: Here are some interior shots from what once was the Henry A. Darling house.
Mod: I guess it now depends on whose hands these houses fall into.
