Welcome to Chateau Blanc! Built in 1922 by German craftsmen in the Bauhaus style and updated in 1995 by renowned architect John Andre Gougeon, this exquisite home was built for grand entertainment! The architecture is like a sculpture rising from the hillside featuring three individual homes nestled amongst two acres of California Oaks where wildlife abounds perched in the Monrovia Foothills with 100-years of rich history and panoramic views from the Clairemont Wilderness to Catalina Island. Travel up an exterior elevator and stroll over a bridge through the treetops to the main house and be greeted by a tranquil copper fountain and a custom mahogany and copper front door. The main house features a huge living room with 17 ceilings, a wine gallery capable of seating 70 guests, custom handcrafted millwork throughout, four fireplaces & a wood stove, a master suite with an en-suite bathroom and private deck, a secondary bedroom, a library and kitchen with views of the San Gabriel Valley. Entertain your guests from the massive rooftop deck with breathtaking 360 degree views. The caretakers stone cottage features a single bedroom, bathroom, a fireplace and kitchen. The guest house has 2-bedrooms and 1-bath, a fireplace & a wood stove and a new roof but the interior is in need of renovation. This very private property in the hills next to a wildlife preserve yet minutes to downtown local entertainment, restaurants, schools and hiking trails. Dont miss this unique opportunity!
