Greene & Greene's Last Major Joint Effort Hits the Market in Pas

New, 46 comments


Constructed between 1911 and 1913 at a cost of just over $150,000, the Cordelia A. Culbertson House in Pasadena's Oak Knoll neighborhood was one of the largest residential commissions received by the architectural firm of Charles and Henry Greene, as well as the last major project jointly undertaken by the master Arts & Crafts-men. The Nationally Registered residence is located across the street from another Greene & Greene, the Blacker House, but differs substantially in style. Per the listing, the Asian-influenced house features seven bedrooms, six baths, sculptured plaster, fabric wall-coverings, hardwood floors, two fireplaces, more than 130 windows, a fountain, loggia, and a dark green glazed ceramic tile roof. Sold in 2003 for $3.178 million, the .69-acre property is now asking $7.5 million.
