Reginald Johnson's eye for scale, style and warm elegance made him the ''starchitect'' of his era. His vision still illuminates this exquisite 1938 Georgian residence in the Huntington Library Estates Area of San Marino, created for a CalTech professor and his English artist wife. A stunning 64-foot long pine-paneled galleria connects the public and private spaces, including a walnut-paneled formal living room with wet bar and fireplace and a formal dining room with fireplace and French doors, served
... by a butler's pantry. The open kitchen with Sub-Zero, Viking & Miele appliances adjoins a breakfast room with French doors opening to a courtyard. A laundry room, half bath and maid's suite are nearby. In the master suite, a two-sided fireplace warms bedroom and sitting room. French doors open to a trellis-covered terrace and the pool. The suite is flanked by two baths with dressing rooms. One of the three additional bedrooms has an en suite bath and could serve as a guest quarters. A family room, library, newly refurbished powder room, and galleria have access to a sizable fountained courtyard. The grounds, centered around an oval swimming pool and spa, include a sun soaked guest house. This home is an especially beautiful example of Johnson's unique vision.
