Description

The Cordelia Culbertson House is one of Pasadena's most iconic homes. Commissioned in 1911 and designed and built between that time and 1913, this house is the last designed jointly by Charles & Henry Greene. The property exhibits many of the asian elements freely used in the "Ultimate Bungalows", for which the brothers were so celebrated. The difference in this home and their work on the Blacker, Gamble and Thorsen houses is that rather than being clad in dark, heavy wood shingles with decidedly... Japanese overtones, the Culbertson House is finished in a coating of light colored gunite with a distinctive green glazed barrel tile roof and exhibits more Chinese influence. The house offers exceptionally more light than the other more Craftsman detailed homes the brothers were known for designing. It is also the only one of their larger designs that is situated almost entirely on one level. Built into a slight hill, the lower level at the rear of the property consists of a servants suite and an approximately 1000 sq. ft. Ballroom, which was originally designed as an open loggia and enclosed with the help of Henry Greene by Mrs. Francis Fleury Prentiss after she purchased the home in 1917. Offering breathtaking views of the San Gabriel mountains, this property is truly a work of art. One can only imagine how the style of this home may have evolved had the brothers remained an architectural team.
