Dr. Harvey and his wife Rosa selected this prominent parcel near the prestigious campus of Occidental College on which to build their dream home in 1924. Fortunately, their design of a one story Spanish has survived beautifully to today. The rounded roofline borrows from mission style parapets and cleverly accents the arches throughout this special home. Even the site angle of the house is “just right”.
The formal living room has a high rounded ceiling, thin plank hardwood floors, and a monument mantel fireplace. The formal dining room has the same wood floors and still has the blue gum built-in China cabinet intact. The Doctor’s home office has great windows and a whimsical tri-color floor sprinkled with shards of abalone shells.
The kitchen has been updated with granite counters, tile flooring, dark wood cabinetry, stainless appliances, and a bright breakfast room. The central hall leads to all three bedrooms and two baths. The master suite enjoys a barreled ceiling, French doors, and an updated master bath. Additional features include: a remodeled full bathroom, central air and heating, large front and rear yards, and a detached garage.
