Tennisketball, anyone? Bouncing onto the market is this Palladian villa in San Marino designed in 1913 by Robert D. Farquhar, the Brooklyn-born architect whose other works include Silver Lake's Canfield-Moreno estate and a little five-sided building in Washington, DC, colloquially known as the Pentagon. Located on a 2.11-acre lot northeast of the Langham Huntington Hotel, the 9,912-square-foot residence features seven bedrooms, six and three-quarters baths, an oval paneled library, circular staircase, elevator, two powder rooms, a butler's pantry, remodeled kitchen, hardwood floors, crown moldings, numerous fireplaces, a wine cellar, a guest house, swimming pool, spa, and sport court. Last sold in 2008 (which is when the photos in our gallery are from) for $10.5 million, it's now listed at $17 million.
