Immense 1908 Arts & Crafts Estate in Pasadena Asks $4.25MM

New, 19 comments


This is the 1908 mansion of iron tycoon Lewis J. Merritt, designed by architect William F. Thompson, and given a full restoration in the last five years or so, according to material from the Gamble House. The stately Arts and Crafts abode now includes five rebuilt bathrooms, a modernized kitchen, six bedrooms, giant gathering spaces, covered terraces, outdoor dining areas, a library, a pool room, and a printing studio (there are even trays for your printing press letters!), all in 8,909 square feet. Sited just off Millionaire's Row, this house reflects that "unprecedented wealth" of the turn of the century, when the rich were spending like it was going out of style. Just look at the fireplaces. Every one is different! In an era of boring, cookie-cutter contemporaries that sell for millions, this is something that actually looks like it's worth all that money. It's asking $4.25 million.
