Property Details

  • Bedrooms: 5

In 1942 Grace Walker commissioned the construction of this graceful one story traditional on this massive parcel overlooking the Rose Bowl. She chose elegance rather than opulence, and valued her privacy within a such a prestigious location. The current Owners of the Walker Estate have sought to preserve the elegance with which it is imbued, and are now ready to pass it on to the next very fortunate steward of this chapter of Linda Vista history.

The one-story design takes full advantage of not only the size of the parcel, but the exceptional views of the Rose Bowl, Brookside golf courses, and the majestic peak of Mt. Wilson in the foreground. The formal entry opens to both the formal living and dining rooms with their original rich wood floors, high ceilings, custom wood details, and a warm fireplace hearth. The remodeled kitchen opens to a large breakfast room and family room with another handsome fireplace.

The north wing has four bedrooms and three baths. The primary suite enjoys its own romantic fireplace, a large walk-in closet, an updated primary bath, and gorgeous views out over the rear grounds. There is a fifth bedroom in the south wing that is currently being used as a home office/den. The rear grounds have been tastefully updated with a covered outdoor entertaining area, built-in BBQ, fountain, and, of course, the View. Just a few of the features include: two central air and heating systems, a 200amp electrical panel, and a detached garage with its own guest suite and bath that are not included in the square footage of the home. Even for those blessed with the ability to purchase such a rare estate, the opportunity to do so is rarer still.
